Area: There are a number of places to fish in Pwllheli Marina. The most popular being the channel at the marina entrance. This can be fished either from the North shore or from the Southern peninsula.The inner harbour can be fished at the top end of the tide for Flounder, Bass and the abundant Mullet.
Tackle: Standard beach rod or light Bass rod combined with a one or two hook flapper for bait fishing. Spinning or plugging rod for lure fishing, light float gear for the Mullet.
Tides: It's best to fish a rising tide in the channel, but be aware that this is a Marina and constant boat traffic can interfere with the fishing. So it's best to fish the channel either early in the morning or in the evening when the boat traffic is reduced.
Bait: Peeler Crab, Lugworm and Ragworm. Bread for the Mullet.
Conditions: Generally a clean bottom, although there is some weed close in where boulders line the shore. The tide in the channel can be very fast and heavy grip leads are needed to hold bottom.
Other fish: Wrasse, Coalfish and Thornback Ray have been landed from the Marina.
Spinning or pluging in the channel from low tide can produce specemin Bass. Float fishing a sandeel or prawn close in from the North shore can often attract the Bass too.
A small bait fished in the deeper parts of the channel will pick up Black Bream. Many of the larger fish occupy this channel. In fact a potential Welsh Record Black Bream of over 4lb was landed here in June 2003.
