Best UK Sea Fishing Locations
Some of the best UK sea fishing is to be found in Wales. The exceptionally diverse Welsh coastline stretches from the estuary of the River Severn in the south to the River Dee estuary in the north. Beaches such as Porth Neigwl (Hell`s Mouth), in Gwynedd and Llangennith, near Swansea offer excellent angling for varied species including bass and mullet. The rocky shores of the Llyn and Gower peninsulas, along with areas of Pembrokeshire offer huge pollack and wrasse. The sandy estuaries of rivers such as the Loughor and Tywi in Carmarthenshire and the Dyfi in Ceredigion provide a brief reprieve for the migratory spawning salmonids, as well a providing a more permanent home for bass, flat fish and tope. The seas of the Pembrokeshire coast, in west Wales have been affected by the Gulf Stream to such an extent that they have become a leading area for shark fishing, with Porbeagle shark specimens of 160lb+ and Blue sharks of 170lb or more.
