  • Best weather for fishing is a day to two days after a storm as fish come close to the shore to feed off the food bounty washed out of the sand and off the rocks by big seas. Big seas and strong turbulence are generated in storms and pound into the coastline this is a dangerous time for anyone venturing out to fish. Calm settled but overcast weather can be productive if not to bright. Bright hot weather is not to good as fish move out of the shallow inshore water until darkness falls , however mid and top water species tend to stay in shore and feed best as the sun is starting to settle in the evening. High atmosphere pressure tends to push the sea flat while low pressure causes the sea to rise up , low pressure systems bring good fishing
  • The basic idea of most surfcasting is to cast a bait or lure as far out into the water as is necessary to reach the target fish from the shore, which at some places can be only a few yards out. Beach casters use very long fishing rods, usually between 12 and 16 feet and of varying composition and stiffness, according to anglers styles and capabilities with prices ranging from £50 - £350. eg:12 foot Beach Rod, Fixed Spool Reel: RRP £79.99. Dedicated surfcasters usually possess an array of terminal and other tackle, with fishing rods and reels of different lengths and actions, and lures and baits of different weights to successfully accomplish reaching and catching the target species. As with any water sport care must be taken to participate safely in this sport. Much surf fishing is done in rough whitewater surf conditions. Powerful waves and strong undertows can cause serious injury or death if proper attention is not paid to safety. It is always best to visit places in advance at low water to see the make up of the area and gain as much local knowledge as possible.

    1. 1. Sea Fishing - Wales <ul><li>Welcome to Wales </li></ul><ul><li>Starting from the Severn Estuary in the south to the mouth of the Dee estuary in the north, Wales has a fantastic coastline. </li></ul><ul><li>With rocky coastlines and cliffs to long sandy storm beaches, Wales is a beautiful place to fish. </li></ul>
    2. 2. Species to be caught <ul><li>Due to the nature of the Welsh coastline with its rocky ledges, rough ground, sandy beaches and muddy estuaries. </li></ul><ul><li>A wide range of species can be caught only limited by the species in that region. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Species to be caught <ul><li>Rough ground </li></ul><ul><li>Pollack </li></ul><ul><li>Wrasse </li></ul><ul><li>Conger Eel </li></ul><ul><li>Dogfish </li></ul><ul><li>Tope </li></ul><ul><li>Smooth Ground and Estuaries </li></ul><ul><li>Flatfish </li></ul><ul><li>Rays </li></ul><ul><li>Bass </li></ul><ul><li>Gurnard </li></ul><ul><li>Black bream. </li></ul><ul><li>Species available changes throughout tide range and season as wind, weather, tide range and season all play a major role </li></ul>
    4. 4. Weather and Tidal Effects <ul><li>Most if not all beaches in Wales are effected by weather and tidal range and this affects feeding times and species caught. </li></ul><ul><li>Tide range is defined as spring tides for the largest and neap tides for the smallest and current strength varies greatly between the two. </li></ul><ul><li>Weather conditions play a major role in where and when to fish and the safety that has to be taken into account. </li></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>Anglers should seek as much local knowledge as possible </li></ul><ul><li>Ignorance and misunderstanding, of tides and currants can result in being cut off, and possibly death. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ebb tide (outgoing). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flood tide (incoming). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tide range: spring (biggest) neap (smallest) midrange (in between). </li></ul></ul>Tidal Effects
    6. 6. Tidal Currents <ul><li>Rip Tide </li></ul><ul><ul><li>strong current running across a beach at certain times of tide flow. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cross current: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>runs parallel to the beach at all stages of flow. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Undertow: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>lower water column being pulled out seaward by offshore rip tide, cross currant or underwater gullies. </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Fishing Weather <ul><li>The best fishing is a day or two after a storm. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The fish come close to the shore to feed on food washed on shore by storm </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It is dangerous to fish in stormy weather. </li></ul><ul><li>Calm, settled overcast weather is productive. </li></ul><ul><li>The fish move out of the shallows into deeper water during bright, hot weather. </li></ul><ul><li>Low pressure weather systems are best for fishing. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>High pressure pushes the sea flat </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. Tidal phases <ul><li>Tidal phases relating to Sun and Moon </li></ul>
    9. 10. <ul><li>The basic idea of beach casting is to reach feeding fish from the shore. </li></ul><ul><li>Beach casting rods are very long. </li></ul><ul><li>Dedicated surfcasters possess an array of terminal tackle, rods and reels. </li></ul>Equipment
    10. 11. Baits <ul><li>Types of bait to be used </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fish baits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mackerel. Herring. sand eel. Squid. cuttle fish. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Shell fish </li></ul><ul><li>Soft crab. peeler crab . hermit crab. razor fish.

    11. 12. Safety First <ul><li>Always check time and range of tide </li></ul><ul><li>Research your area well ahead of planned trip. </li></ul><ul><li>Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear. carry a fully charged mobile phone </li></ul><ul><li>Use local knowledge to maximum advantage . </li></ul><ul><li>Tell someone where you are going and what time you expect to return allowing for conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>Take a hot drink with you. </li></ul><ul><li>Where possible take a first aid kit. </li></ul><ul><li>Where necessary avoid rough sea conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure your retreat route is not cut off by incoming tide </li></ul><ul><li>Take nothing for granted, always double check everything including weather before you set out </li></ul><ul><li>Only take what's needed for the trip , travel as light as can be allowed </li></ul>
