Is it worthwhile fishing at loughor at low water?

I'm itching to wet a line there tonight, but with high tide not till 2am I'm wondering if it would worth a session by the bridges between say 8pm & 11pm?

Thanks for any replies. :)

Personally at low water, espessially by the bridges you,d have a chance of a early bass, but as for flounder id say youd have more luck with spinners... as they just bury themselfs and go off the feed. But the movement of a lure could trigger them to strike!! It works for me ! Hope it helps.

Thanks Wrighty, I was hoping you'd reply as the "king of the estuary"! Do you reckon a slow retrieve of maddies with bling/spoon etc would tempt them? At what time would there be enough porential movement in the water to get them on the feed tonight?

With top water being at 02.06am and it being a 5.6mtr it will trickle in, the first run will push in roughly 2 1/2 hours before high so your looking at around half 11 tonight. Dont bother with bling or a spoon at night as they will reley on scent and vibration. Slow ratreives may work. Worth a try. Im doing burry port tomorrow.
