Aberystwyth Sea Fishing
Aberystwyth, located in Ceredigion, is a great little beach fishing location that offers decent year round sport with an array of different fish species on the menu:
In the Summer: Bass, Bream, dogfish, garfish, plaice, pollack, mackerel and wrasse
Winter options: Bull huss, codling, flounder, pouting and whiting
The main area that's popular with the locals is the stone jetty with access to the East. A popular location during the Summer, it can be a problem for people with younger anglers as there is no protection from waves or railings. That said, there is plenty of action to be had with a number of tactics that work well from the stone jetty.
In the Summer, it’s well worth trying lug or ragworm, or even mackerel strips for sea bass, garfish, pollack and wrasse. If bream or dogfish is on the menu, then bluey or mackerel work well fished on a multi-hook rig fished at range off either side of the jetty or off the end. Other bait options that work well are peeler crab, squid and sandeel.
In Winter, you see the slow down, however, there is still plenty of action to be had, with local matches a popular fixture. Smaller hooks using worm baits will see you reeling in the flouders and whiting in the colder months, and if you’re lucky, the odd codling may make an appearance in the correct conditions.
Parking is available close to the marina, with the stone jetty nearby.
