I was wondering the same thing, the effect these smallish tides have on the fishing at the local marks, I'm going to try either the foreshore or Penarth, but don't know which is best on a lowish tide? Any advice would be appreciated here too.
Went down to foreshore last night, over near the monkey pole, stayed until about 4am. Weather was wet, VERY wet, and guess what I blanked again! But a lad fishing nearby had a load of decent whitng (11 I think he said) and a conger, and his mate had a couple too. I was using the same bait (rag, lug and squid) etc. etc. and had a couple of bites but that was it. Looking forward to coming on the board and saying I actually caught something, it's coming....but don't hold yer breath he he.
