Newgale is fished like any other storm/surf beach its flat so youl need beach casting gear loaded with plenty of line. Best fished at night as in the day its chock a block with surfers and swimmers. Fish it close in for flounder and then a bit further out for bass. A lot of people like to fish it 2 hours either side of low water .. or fish more of the flood if your catching fish.

Razor fish and rag worm and lug work well.

Nearest tackle shop would be Anglers Corner at Milford Haven, 1 Pill Road, 01646 698899.

If you want to spin then the rocks at little haven point, or at broad haven on the north side rocks (along the coastal path) can produce mackerel and bass.

Just got back, only had chance to fish fri night for 2 hrs ( due to mrs and her sis moaning), managed to dig some bait ( lug) from sandy haven creek, lots of casts but really hard to find the worm lol, then my spade snapped (typical). We fished 1hr before and after and I managed to catch a schoolie just short of 2lb on high tide. Gutsy fish swallowed it all the way down and was bleeding bad and didnt think it would make it, so in the end ( rather than try and get the hook out smashing his insides out) i cut the line close to his mouth and let him go. The novice is now hookied on fishing too and is looking forward to having another go

Stunning place would definately like to go fishing down there again and have a go at spinning, looks really basssy lol. Looking forward to next year now
