Ogmore Deeps shore fishing

A very popular shore fishing mark on the South Wales coast line. The ground is made up of rock ledges leading out to sand and deep water about 50 meters from the shore, although there are rocks and reefs everywhere. The mark can be dangerous in large swells and pay particular attention on high tides.

Ogmore beach

Ogmore deeps species

Winter brings in whiting, pouting and codling. There are some great Cod caught from this beach each year!!

Spring will start to see catches of thornback, blonde and small eyed rays with summer giving the odd garfish and mackerel, bass, dogfish and the odd smoothound. Conger also get caught here.

Baits and Rigs

Simple rigs like pulley rigs are great for this kind of mark.

Fish baits and rag worm will take most species and try lug for the winter species. Sand eel often helps select the rays.
