Seasonal Fishing

Spring: March to May

As spring arrives, Aberdaron Beach comes alive with fishing opportunities. Species like bass begin to move closer to shore, making it an excellent time for lure fishing. Target rocky areas with spinners or plugs to entice these prized fish. Additionally, flatfish such as plaice and flounder can be caught using bottom fishing rigs baited with ragworms or lugworms.

Summer: June to August

Summer brings an abundance of mackerel to the waters off Aberdaron Beach. Fishermen can enjoy exciting sessions of mackerel fishing using feathered lures or small strips of mackerel. Bass fishing remains productive, especially during the early mornings or late evenings when these predatory fish are most active. Fishing during the incoming or outgoing tide is ideal for maximizing catches.

Autumn: September to November

As autumn sets in, anglers can still enjoy fruitful fishing expeditions at Aberdaron Beach. Cod begin to migrate closer to shore, providing opportunities for anglers to target these prized fish using large bait such as squid or mackerel. Flatfish activity remains consistent, making it a great time to continue bottom fishing with baited rigs.

Winter: December to February

Winter heralds the arrival of cod in abundance near Aberdaron Beach. Anglers can brave the cold weather to target cod using bottom fishing rigs baited with squid or mackerel. Additionally, anglers may encounter other species such as whiting and dogfish during the winter months. Fishing during slack tide periods can be productive, as fish are more likely to feed when the currents are less intense.

Safety Tips:

  • Always check local weather forecasts and tide times before embarking on a fishing trip.
  • Be aware 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.
