Has anyone fished Sully Island recently? I live nearby and was thinking about fishing it low tide on Saturday. Over recent weekends there seem to have been loads of people on there every day.

I fished the bay opposite (Swanbridge Bay) over high tide last Sunday, but blanked. I used mackrel and rag tipped with squid, but not even a bite. There were about 6 other fishermen there, and I didn't see anyone catch anything. I usually catch a pouting or two from there.

Any other recommendations on where to fish this weekend near Cardiff??

Cheers,

Bud

Fished there Thursday on the low tide from the monkey pole.
Not a bite but I did notice a few mullet circling my float.

We did notice some gill nets laid from Swanbridge Bay to the island on our return across the causeway though.
So maybe that the reason for the poor fishing there.

Has anyone fished Sulley Island at high tide?

I know this would have to be an all day excursion or camping trip due to the tides
but would the effort be worth it..
What does the venue fish like??

I'm pretty new to fishing, but I take it that the gill nets are illegal??

I fished Swanbridge Bay on Saturday and caught a couple of pound codling. I had another big knock but whatever it was took the bait and hook.

In the afternoon I fished from St Mary's Well bay from the beach to the sandspit. There were loads of fish jumping and circling my bait, but they didn't seem interested in taking it. Anyone know what they were likely to be?? Mullet perhaps? They were coming in to within a foot of the shore, in 6 inches of water.

Fished the spit once, the only message I have for is to travel light and be aware that once the tide starts coming in, be prepared to move FAST.
