Went to the beach at Rhyl at splash point low tide Sunday and blanked.
Went back the following day at high tide, guess what, blanked again.
Going back in 2 weeks, will try again.
Just one point.
Would float fishing work of splash point at high tide?
It was quite calm and looked pretty deep, thought maybe worth a go.
Anyone tried it?
Thanks

you would probably do better looking for a low tide coinciding with late evening/or dark.middle of the day with the sun out never the best,also increase your chances by making sure you you have fresh bait,not frozen

Ha Ha dont listen to em. plenty of fish to fish for in

Rhyl, and the beach can fish well in the right conditions fishes best with

an onshore wind or after a good one and that is

the key to fishing the beach, fish the gulleys as the tide rises (or drops)

watching out behind for the water cutting you off, if you are fishing by

splash point the gulleys arent that deep but fishing them can mean the

difference between a blank and a few fish, also along splash point towards

back of the golf course, you can park in the car park down garford road, it

can fish well over high with a wind with northerly in it, good for bass and

flounder and some nice plaice, the beach at splash point is the steepest

part of Rhyl beach meaning you have to walk less to fish at low or fish in

the deeper water over high, which in the winter is the best part to head

for with plenty of whiting and when they are about codling, a few last

winter in the 3-4lb bracket.

behind the sun center directly out, its a long walk but if you fish that on

the big tides at the low water it can produce some really good fish shhhh!

or closer to the harbour the training arm, stone groyne where the river

clwyd goes in to the sea, fish to the right of the river as you look out to

sea over the rough stones of the groyne opposite sandringham ave, fish

here with peeler as the crabs are a mare, everywhere else fresh lug is all

you need.

Then you have the foryd, fish in the river or harbour for flounder and eels

and mullet and there is some monster mullet, seen a guy last summer land

a 6lb and a 5lb in succession and there are a lot bigger too, these can be

caught all the way up the river, the furthest up I know they have been

caught is by the castle in Rhuddlan by a friend of mine who caught an 8lb-

er on the fly.
