Fished Penarth end of the barrage, anyone tell me the name of this place? Anyway fished from around 7am until 11.30am and not a bloody bite, not even a nibble!! Was using rag and squid. Kept chopping and changing casting long and short, still no joy. Getting pretty fed up with the blanks now, is it just me or is anyone else consistantly blanking?? Or am I just fishing the wrong marks? Starting to look lovingly at the old trout fishing rod again, help!!!!!!
Hope the rest of you are having better luck,
Penn

Nah Don't think it's the Ranny mate, it's below the cliffs at Penarth, but it doesn't really matter cause I won't be back there for a while!! Think I need to go a bit further afield, but don't know all that many places 'cause I'm not originally from here. At home in Ireland I had loads of options, but mainly spinning for big Pollack from the rocks, fly fishing for trout etc. I suppose it's the same for locals here. Still I'm glad youre doin ok anyway m8 ;) Maybe I'll make my way to Porthcawl, off to look at the map....

Thanks Marcus I'd appreciate that, would be good to have someone local to show me the ropes, and it's not that far from Cardiff, I look forward to it m8. Thanks Natmatlew, I kinda thought it was "dock beach" but wasn't sure, and I think someone (John Dory?) caught a couple of bass there recently too! But I must be a real jinx 'cause I swear I never got a tap the last two times I've been there! As for fishing with Poacher, well I can blank just fine on my own mate! lol Anyway I'm off to the foreshore for an hour or two tonight to drown the rest of my worms, probably feeding the buggers up for someone else to catch!!!
Cheers all,
Penn

Hiya

Yes it is dock beach. Its a hit and miss venue this time of the year. Late may on wards you will have the eels and the odd bass there as well as some flounder but not in the quanity that you can target the flats.

Autum / winter its whiting, pouting and the very odd codling.

Hope that helps
