Lo All,
Could anyone tell me the nearest beaches to Cardiff for collecting razorfish? If the beach had lug or rag that would be a bonus (finally get to try out my new bait pump), but a good place for the razorfish would be fine. I'm going to try them as bait but to be honest if they're no good I'll eat them myself! Had my first ones a couple of weeks ago bought from fishmongers, fried on a hot pan and drzzled with olive oil, absolutely delicious! Not much to look at mind you, like something out of Alien the movie, but good grub. Anyway any help would be aprreciated.

Lo Poacher,
thanks for that m8. Would definitely be up for a bait trip some day, got a bait pump from Blueskip a while a go and haven't used it yet, so let me know when you're going? Took the family to Swansea a few weeks ago (promised the wee fellah a go on a "bullet train"), went down to the beach and boy was there worms there!! I haven't been out fishing much recently, a few just, since I met yous at the foreshore, and I'm a bit naughty not sending in reports. Fact is the fishing (for me anyway) has been so bloody poor that I was going to wait until it picked up, so that at least I'd have something to report! On reflection, blank reports are as important as good ones to let us know how the fishing is. Anyway I keep going and hoping, just like the rest. I'll get that Bass this year if it kills me, or leaves me broke and single, he he. As I said I'd really be up for a bait trip, keep in touch eh? tight lines m8, Penn

no probs penn, when we go i give u a shout ok. after all if u got 4 in the car its cheaper on petrol. and every 1 for themselves then, in other words we all get our own bait, unless i get a bad back. then i will have to confiscate some off the other lads. heehee. as if i would. will give u a shout ok........

i gathered some razorfish at oxwich beach at sunday lunchtime with my neighbours grandson we collected enough for 1 session in the evening and i froze some down for the next time off the boat for the bream i suppose if you were coming down from cardiff with your boy you'd have to stay the weekend in sunny gower and incorporate your camping with a razor collectin,lug gathering'bass/flattie fishing weekend at nicholaston pill"just a short walk along oxwich beach" and if you do come make sure the tides are over 11.8 or you wont reach the razor beds ,happy fishing ,dog hop
