Sea fishing at Mumbles pier, South Wales

Mumbles Pier, in Sawnsea fishes  well for in the Summer months for bass, garfish, mackerel, plaice, mullet and trigger fish. In winter it offers whiting, dabs, flounder, codling, and dogfish.

Close to the pier works best for the trigger fish. Crab of Mackerel fished on a Aberdeen size 1 hook on a long trace to allowing it to move in the tide.

Mullet will be taken on bread flakes or fish and bread mash. A little extra fish oil will get the scent trails stronger and lasting longer to attract the fish.

Bass are regularly taken on float tackle, with a sand eel fished underneath. This will also pick up mackerel and gar.

Winter fishing for cod is best with squid and lug cocktails.
