Welcome to the site dangler.

As poach says, somebody will answer your question, don't do much fishing down that neck of the woods to be honest.

Anyway, welcome to the site mate and I hope you get as much excitement and pleasure from sea fishing as the rest of us.

Welcome Dangler
I'm sure there will be plenty of people chipping in to help you , As a Carp fisherman in the linear fisheries in Oxford ,I find the sea fishing totally different with regard to the people involved.
Example I spend all day on the lakes and knowone talks bait ,tackle.tactics ,etc its seems your secret day out .
Sea fishing not only do the guys talk your head off but they just love to tell you of thier exploits etc.
Look at all the posts on this site and you will see what i mean. I had a guy tell me once was that a cast you attempted then, to my amazement I concided he then proceeded to show me how and I havent looked back since.
Anyway enjoy the site its the best one on the net

Psycho Billy you have my sympathy catching a 9.5lb marine hedgehog, I suppose it was as usual, 9.5lb of bin-lid wrapped in barbed wire, covered in snot, & smelling like a baby's pissy napkin! How I envy you, that experience is only matched by catching a 3lb green eel at the Lighthouse or Redwick! Gudge. Gudge, Gudge!!!!!!

Dangler, Welcome.
I haven't fished St.Brides however the area is popular with SCUBA divers and I have dived there a quite a bit. There is plenty of marine life with and abundance of Pollock and Ballan wrasse. I hae also seen mackeral, bass and gurnard near to the shore. Much of theground is kelpy and rough so appropriate rotten rigs and spinning techniques would suite.

regards.

try little haven - broad haven for bass on low tide.
A good rock fishin spot is the bay to the left of little haven (we used to call it the sheep dip) to get there you have to go to the top of little haven hill (near the camp site) to a look out piont.
Follow the coastal path to the right, there is an overgrown path that takes you down the cliff to a beach where you can climb the rocks either side for a good vantage spot. remember the word overgrawn as you may need a rope, as with all cliffs the rocks may have changed shape or part of the path may have disapeared!! There is another way down but you will definately need a rope so just go for the path route.
In my years fishing this spot it's turned up Wrasse, Pollock, trigger fish, Bass, Doggy's, Bullhuss, Conger, gurnard, mackrel and even the odd tope!
remember safety on the clambering down but as it tends to be with fishing if you put that little bit of effort in you usually get results.
Hot bait tip = medium hard back crap on float (triggers and wrasse go mad for it)
Tight lines

Not a bad description but in these dire times at least it pulled my string...;)

there's more to fishing than COD and BASS!!!!

And my best Green (or should that be SILVER) eel was 3lb 14oz at Farm Fields.....and It's Bigger cousin 22lb 8oz Conger from the shore at Manobier.

No Poach I dont like em at all, they are as big a pain as growlers, live eel or mackerel strip fished either drifted or anchored for turbot or bass over the Mixen Bank is 99% sure to give you a thornback or growler, its 1% the target species!
Move to St Christophers Gnoll & its the same, move to Slade & it changes from thornbacks to small-eyed + growlers of course!
I often dream of a Bristol Channel "ray & growler free" & the bottom carpeted with nice edible fat flatties, yummy!
