Fishing at Llanbedrog Beach:

Spring: March to May

Spring brings a variety of fish species to the waters around Llanbedrog Beach, including bass, flounder, and mackerel. Anglers can have success using lures such as spinners or soft plastics for bass and mackerel. Bottom fishing with baited rigs using ragworms or lugworms is effective for targeting flounder.

Summer: June to August

Summer heralds the arrival of an abundance of mackerel in the waters off Llanbedrog Beach. Anglers can enjoy fast-paced mackerel fishing sessions using feathered lures or small strips of mackerel. Bass continue to roam the rocky areas, providing exciting opportunities for lure fishing with spinners or soft plastics.

Autumn: September to November
