There should be a few pollack and bass about still but unless you use the cheaper jellybaits spinning at this time of year is a poor way to save money as the snags will eat far more lures than the fish do.

If you want to save money why not try to collect mussels as they are a top bait for a variety of species. Cheers keith :D :D

Hi , I`m no expert but I have witnessed a couple different tactics which may be interesting . Firstly is the old method of slow spinning a `spoon` baited with rag to hunt flounder , and also spinning with white feathers tipped with sand eel or mackerel can be very sucsessful. Good luck!

Dont know how your blanking when you live in rhoose.
theres fish comin from Aberthaw,stout,llanwit major,witches no good fishing when weather breaks,fish them in the rough.

if i were u mate i would stick to ur local marks with with big baits on the rough and keep the spinning for further west during the summer months ,to be realistic mate we just dont have the clarity of water to make spinning a viable practice in the channel in the winter months,try ogmore river mouth or aberthaw outlets during a long settled period in the summer with plugs or tobies but to be honest as far as lure fishing is concerned (west is best).
