I might do mate, I'll have to let you know nearer the day, I'll PM you if deffo OK. I was at Magor yesterday and it was fishing OK. Rag, squid, crab, and lug are your best baits there.

Hello again,

Well a nice refreshing bout of D&V put paid to us coming up to Newport last weekend! so have re-scheduled and will be coming up this Friday and will be fishing the Saturday high tide in the AM. As the tides seem to be on the large side, I take it I should be looking to fish Sudbrook as Goldcliffe and St Brides will be a write off? Is there anywhere else within easy reach of Newport?

Many thanks yet again.

Don't know where you get your tide info manik but they're low tides this weekend so you can fish anywhere from Beachley to St Brides and beyond, just be careful how much the tides do race in.

Tide times for weekend at Newport below. The hour for BST has already been added. Hope this helps.

My bad, I was looking at the weekend of the 9th which we were coming up on. Will it be worth fishing Goldcliffe on this tide?
(top of the tide in the afternoon), Sorry for all of the questions but I've got to give myself the best chance of a cod(ling) as have only ever had codlets!

Many thanks

that's what I wanted to hear thanks for that, Goldcliffe's only a 10 minute drive from me Nan's. Is lug or rag best? and wrapped in squid? Also I take it that you are on about fishing it top of the tide?

Cheers

Sorry got to ask again, Will it be OK fishing the top of the tide at only 9M? or will there not be enough depth, I don't know my way around there at the bottom of the tides and wouldn't want to come unstuck out on the mud!

Cheers, and sorry for so many questions!

thanks for the replies and info, I fished from 2 hours up all the way to the top of the tide yesterday morning/afternoon. managed one small codling about 8-10oz, but did have a few bites as well which kept my interest. I fished off to the right of the old stakes, must admit I was surprised at the difference a small tide makes in terms of the amount of water over the mud flats, couldn't believe there were still people fishing into it. It can't have been any more than a foot deep. A chap turned up from Warwick and fished next to me, was good to have someone to chat to, how did you get on? (he's a member on here).

Amyway thanks again, still haven't managed to get a keeper, but was still enjoyable!.
