The beaches of West Wales are famous for the quality of bass fishing they offer, and Pembrokeshire has a wealth of readily accessible beaches, some of which are many miles long, providing great surf fishing while others nestle in sheltered bays that provide a refuge for fish and fishers in stormy weather. Tope, turbot, gurnard, whiting, rays, mackerel, codling, pollack, whiting and (quite literally) a hundred other species can be caught from the beaches of Pembrokeshire. Although opinions vary greatly, the best time to fish on the beaches is to fish the incoming tide. The incoming tide starts after low tide. Typically the big fish follow the little fish. Little fish can’t easily swim against the tide so, Two hours before high is perfect.
