I know there is a forum for help for beginers etc but I thought I 'd start off this thread for the welsh and mainly those forum members who Mullet fish west of swansea. The question is in the title? Do I need a special rod? What state of the tide? Day or night? And lastly but most important where. I took a walk around Burry Port harbour/ marina yesterday and didn't see any fish. is it still too early in the year? Where do mullet go in the winter? Float or light ledger what is the best? I expect loads of posts on this thread people so lets keep them relevant to the question asked

Hiya Rog, the mullet havnt gone anywhere this winter, theres still a few up the creeks in carew, mainly if its cold they migrate down to the channel islands, as for tackle ive always used a feeder or carp rod approx 12 ft with a small fixed spool loaded with no more than 6lb, flurocarbon is your best bet, normally float wise a clear drennan (self loaded) waggler is the best with hooks around a size 8 to 12, maddies and bread are the best, ground baiting previous days before have helped me with, bread,macky,pilchard oil and old ragworm, and another tip always take a good landing net, with mullet patience is the name of the game!!
