Hi guys,

Me old man is down in Wales for the next week, family problems, and well he wants to fish Mumbles on Wednesday,starting off on the pier, and then fishing from the wall, with the high tide at 8.05 - and its a big tide.. (was advised this is called knapp rock or something? could/probably am mistaken tho)

Basically, he has asked me to ask you guys hows its fishing lately, what rigs are best to use, and wait bait etc? Been using pennell pulleys, but are paternosters any use down there? lug rag squid and macky baits to use?

Basically just any info/costs/precautions that he should take really.....

Does the pier have a drop net available too?

Sorry for all the questions.

Tight lines all,
SA

Mumbles pier been ok for whiting, doggies and dabs lately plus my mate lost a good huss there 2 weeks back.

i would say fish 3 hook flapper with size 1 or 2 hooks and use worm and fish baits

£3 to fish the pier though

Not sure about knab rock area as i dont usually fish there but should be more or less the same as pier

There's lots of boys/girls fish these areas more regularly though and I'm sure they'll be on soon to help further

Jay,

My dad has never fished the pier, and he called them today for some info, and they said there was no water there today to fish in?

Does this sound about right or what? as he is now kinda panicing as he really really really wants to get out
