<font color='#ADA96E'>Fished Porthcawl on 24,25.July.04. For the two days I did not see anybody caching any fish. I cought nothing on Saturday from Newton&#39;s point. On Sunday managed to catch a small turbot and an eel on mackerel filet from the breakwater. It was supposed to fish very well in Porthcawl and to be full of dogfish. Rubbish&#33; I got fed up with trying unsuccessfully to catch fish in South Wells for three weeks and last Sunday(01.08.04) went to the Hastings pier. There I had a lots of fun catching big garfish on float. Cought also 64 mackerel (on feathers) for bait for the winter.
If anybody can tell me where can I catch flat fish and bass in South Wells I will be most grateful. I need reliable information because I have to drive two hours from Birmingham and the Welsh eels are becoming very expensive&#33;

<font color='#000000'>well at the moment everyone local is saying to fish either Aberthaw or Mountain Ash....their pretty close together.....I&#39;m going to try and get to Aberthaw this weekend so I&#39;ll let you know from what happens then.....

But if yer from Birmingham wouldn&#39;t it be easier for you to fish more North Wales than the South? &nbsp;Or there&#39;s the Bristol Channel is supposed to be very good this year too.

Hope it helps yer out

<font color='#000080'>Porthcawl not fishing well at all so far this Summer. I&#39;ve heard good reports from the Ogmore estuary and along the coast to the "Deeps" a fair showing of Bass and Mackerel making an appearance as well. I&#39;ll keep you posted on any hotspots that may "appear".</font>

<font color='#000000'>Loads of smoothhound in Aberthaw. &nbsp;nasty blighters,

Aberthaw is a bit hit and miss tho&#39;. &nbsp;You may go several times and blank, and then on one occasion you may be pulling them out at a frantic pace&#33;</font>

<font color='#000000'>Hi Lads,

They must be Welsh&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

Sorry , only a joke, I have recently returned from 2 glorious weeks in St Davids & Freshwater East. I fished every morning and evening and blanked each time. I thought that it must have been my technique but as everybody else blanked I put it down to the lack of fish? Where are they?

Cheers

Drew

P.S. I&#39;m of to West Bay (Dorset) next week so I shall keep my fingers crossed that they (the fish) might be there&#33;&#33;&#33;</font>

<font color='#0000FF'>They bite, are very lively on the hook off the water, curl up and generally make life difficult. They are like little sharks.
