Amroth is ok, but you just cant go & belt it out & hope to catch something! Night tides are best, daytime is crap except in winter when the whiting are about (even then dark is best)!
Low tide plus 2/3 hrs up will produce flounders, High water (when the tide reaches the pebbles) give dogs, dogs, dogs. Best time I find is from HW down to about 3hrs after the top, but again, IT NEEDS TO BE IN THE DARK!
Otherwise try Laugharne just down the road, up past the boathouse to the pool where the fallen tree is, good tides this weekend (small) fish from low water (or an hour after low water) up to the top.
Use "Maddies" if you can get them, or small king rag, plenty of flourescent yellow beads above the hook on a 2/3 hook paternoster.
I'm not sure what time the last bus runs from Laugharne to Amroth? I think thats the only information I have left out! tight lines!

Ripper, Dim problem mate I never thought for a minute that you were talking about me!
I love Amroth in the winter, I have had some great nights down there with the Tilley hissing & the "dewdrop" on the end of my nose freezing solid.
Rod bouncing as whiting & dabs shake the hell out it, then when the tide runs back from the pebbles at 0200, driving back to Swansea with the heater on, trying to stay awake!
Then its up again at 0630 again for work, this year though there is no more getting up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! viva la 65!!!
