    Gents (and Ladies)
    I used to go sea fishing with my Dad 30 years ago off Penarth Pier but have not done any fishing since
    I have just been given a load of tackle, rods and reels so would like to start giving it a go again
    Any recommendations where to go where I might catch something decent in the Penarth/Swansea area.
    Preferably off a pier, sea wall or rocks rather than beach casting
    As always any “sensible” suggestions would be much appreciated

    I’m pretty much the same as you, used to do loads if fishing up until my early 20’s. Bought myself a load of new kit a few years ago and pop out now and again usually in the summer.
    I really love spinning off the beach. Nothing better than standing knee deep in the waves on sunny day. I usually go to The Knap, Lavernock, Aberthaw or Monknash.

    Off the rocks occasionally Southerndown and Porthcawl Pier.
    I’ve never fished Penarth Pier or the Barrage but they’re always popular.

    Sludge of CCMB fame is your man for this IIRC but Penarth Pier, Barrage and The Knapp are always mentioned in such threads.

    I only ever went sea fishing off a boat out of Penarth.

    I tried to say in my post that I never actually fished anywhere except off a boat out of Penarth and that Sludge is the man for this question.

    Thanks mate, forgot about Ogmore/Southerndown. I will take a trip down with the dogs during the week and see if anyone is fishing off the rocks and try and get done local info
    Can’t use a Penarth pier until September due to council rules unfortunately.

    It varies depending on the time of year but amongst others you can get Mackerel, Bass, whiting, pouting, cod and flatties

    A few whiting and an eel. Oh and some cuttle fish which we just scooped up off the surface and used for bait!

    My mate got a cod that day.

    Each to their own , but fishing has to be one of the most fucking boring past times ever.

    Couldn't think of anything worse , apart from painting, to do with my time off

    I've only fished the river Ely as a kid mate in the summer , multi tasking with cans of red stripe n a bong

    Hired a boat when we went to turkey spain n Bulgaria, and fished off that , but that was just to relax after a skin full :hehe:

    I don’t think it’s set in stone but I think the Estuary becomes the channel and then the sea just west of Cardiff.
