A guide to fishing on Aberdesach Beach

Aberdesach Beach: Seasons of Fishing

Location: Nestled on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in Gwynedd, Wales, Aberdesach Beach is a tranquil stretch of shoreline overlooking the Irish Sea.

Length and Composition: Aberdesach Beach extends along the coast for approximately 1 mile, offering a mix of golden sands and rocky formations, providing diverse habitats for marine life.

Aspect: Facing northwest, Aberdesach Beach boasts panoramic views of the sea and surrounding coastline, making it an idyllic spot for anglers to enjoy the beauty of nature while fishing.

Seasonal Fishing

Spring: March to May

As spring arrives, Aberdesach Beach welcomes the return of various fish species. Anglers can target bass and flatfish like flounder and plaice using bottom fishing rigs baited with ragworms or lugworms. Lure fishing for bass can also be productive, especially around rocky areas using spinners or soft plastics.

Summer: June to August

Summer brings an abundance of mackerel to the waters off Aberdesach Beach, providing excellent opportunities for anglers to enjoy exciting mackerel fishing sessions. Feathered lures or small strips of mackerel are effective bait choices. Additionally, summer is a prime time for bass fishing, particularly during the early mornings or late evenings when these predatory fish are most active.

Autumn: September to November

Autumn signals the transition of fish behaviour at Aberdesach Beach. As temperatures cool, cod and whiting become more prevalent, offering anglers the chance to target these species using bottom fishing rigs baited with squid or mackerel. Flatfish like plaice and flounder continue to be caught, making bottom fishing a reliable method during this season.

Winter: December to February

Winter brings the opportunity to target cod and other cold-water species near Aberdesach Beach. Anglers can brave the chilly weather to fish for cod using bottom fishing rigs with large bait such as squid or mackerel. Additionally, whiting and dogfish may also be encountered during winter fishing expeditions. Fishing during slack tide periods or during the incoming tide can be particularly productive during winter.

Safety Tips:

  • Always check local weather forecasts and tide times before heading out for a fishing trip.
  • Be mindful of potential hazards such as rocks, strong currents, and changing weather conditions.
  • Dress warmly and wear appropriate footwear for traversing rocky terrain.
  • Respect fishing regulations and practice responsible angling techniques to preserve the marine environment.
