Hi all bottom fishing, not spinning. I could not believe it myself as I have only seen one that size and that was caught down in ferryside.

better to not post it on the open forum if you find out where they fished fella....it would get netted out within a tide or two I expect.....

If anyone wants to know and your happy to share better done by pm, then the netters dont get to see

Faiplay though seems lougher is fishing well for bass

Netters as far as I am aware cannot net this side of whitford / burry port, leagally anyway. I and lots of others no dought know that this has been ignored by some and they know that the fisheries are so under manned that they can get away with it.:cry:

I do believe that some impressive catches are caught and I know for a fact that some anglers keep it to themselves not to be called liars and have the venue over-fished!!! On sunday (after blanking for 3hrs and trying everything) another forum member arrived at the mark I was fishing and in no time had landed around 4 bass which looked big from 50yards away so I went to find out what he was doing. He explained/demonstarated the plug fishing he was doing and even gave me a lure to try!! i had a 4lb 5oz bass and have only now stopped shaking. he said his fish were all between 2.5lbs and 5lb! i took a photo of 2 that he had in a rockpool for him and he photo`d mine. the fish were weighed on a scales built into a hand help fish gripper he was using to land them and no report or pics have been posted. so im gonna keep an open mind on it and if its a mark i have fished and seen producing like this i would tend to believe it but never fished lloughor so dont know if it produces as posted. (if it is though, ill be there!!)

i had a chat with my nabour today guys and he was having the bass off lougher bridge itself so no worry about netters i also said he was having them on lug but it was rag worm he was using while bottom fishing
