I've used an Aerlex 8000 and Okuma AX10000 for a few years now and they are the mutts nuts in terms of casting distance and performance (for me anyways).The Okuma is especially good for distance casting and can match most multipliers on the beach.This is probably more to do with casting technique th...

The age old argument of fixed spool vs. multiplier has never really been settled by either side.I've used fixed spool reels for as long as I've been fishing and could not migrate to a multiplier without extensive practice.Fixed spool generally have a much quicker retrieve rate than it's opposite and...

Last nights report.. We arrived about 3 hours before high water (9pm hw),producing 2 small codling.High water was very quiet,but that changed as the tide turned and we saw a few more undersized codling landed.So,not a great start,but the cod are most definately at Redwick and I suspect further west ...

Thats a tragic waste of everyones time,effort and money.This may have been a genuine call out,this person may have thought they'd seen someone needing help,but it does seem rather unlikely given the conditions.If this was the case of a crank caller then let's all hope this person doesn't get the hel...

Cardiff Foreshore will produce good numbers of school-bass during September,as will Penarth,but September is usually the queitist time for fishing these marks so it's a bit of hit and miss at the moment. Further East,from Newport to Sudbrook you will see the first codling coming in and a good chance...

Cardiff Foreshore-your views.

It's been almost a year since I last fished the foreshore and things seem to have changed in terms of catches and access. Talking to friends who fished last winter I'm told of a dramatic drop in catches of cod and codling,was this the case for you? I'm also told that access to the foreshore is now r...

At short range I drop from a 5 or 6 oz lead to a 3 or 4 ounce,depending on conditions and use a two or 3 hook clip down rig,much like the gemini rigs.When casting distance I rely on a pulley pennel rig with a 5 or 6 oz lead.Pulley rigs seem to work well at Redwick as the seabed os relatively clean,w...

hello jb. Hook size depends on your baits really,but as a rule I use a 2/0 or 4/0. Casting distances are important at Redwick,since casting too far will put your bait on the wrong side of a peat ledge and will usually mean lost tackle.The best advice I can give is to arrive at the ledges at least 3 ...

A year later,a year older and a year wiser! This weekend will see my first trip of the year to Redwick.Saturdays' tide is a 12.8m!This is not ideal,since I find Redwick fishes best on an 11m or less,but nonetheless I'm going to give it a go. I'll be fishing 3 hours before high water,with high water ...
