Are they school bass or mullet? the Neath River is similar, with shoals of fish on the incoming tide, but these are mullet.
I used to catch loads of mullet in the old North Dock using a floating fly line & a white nymph, which I think they mistake for a maggot.
If they are bass its good news for the future, but makes us look like arses because we have been saying that they are being overfished! so if they are, shhhhhhhhh!

So they were Bass then! There have ben huge shoals of Hering seen off Penmon point about a month ago and some off Gallows Point, so I thought, given the period of grace given to that species (a moratorium?) that this was the result!

Reading a book about the old fish traps (to feed the monasteries) in The Menai Straits 400years ago and the TONS of Herring they were catching there! Only ones I've seen in the Swellies were the ones I used for bait!

Let's hope the Bass shoal stays intact and manges to avoid the Gill netters.

Well I can dream can't I?
