Hi lads,

Just wondering if someone can give me some advice, on where to fish, what baits to use and whats the difference between low tides and high tides. It might sound silly not knowing my tides, but only starting to do a bit of shore fishing recently, and havent had much luck. Fished upto full tide tonight and caught nothing. Fished the cove in ballydwan.

hi curno,the best baits i find to use is fresh lug,peeler crab,ragworm and maddies,at the moment im catching a lot of fish on fresh lug,i find fishing on the turn of the high tide im having most of my luck.one hour before and after,tramore beach is fishing well at the moment,as well as kilfarrasy.

hi curno welcome to the site.first off tides,they play huge factor in fishing and each venue is differant then the next and best way is to get out and fish at all stages of the tide and get talking to other anglers on the beach and get info off them.lug worm crab and mackerel are best all round bait for general beach fishing.and using a 2 hook flapper with plain or grip lead.ballydwan can be very hit and miss at times but does trough up good fishing at times.try clonea.

well curno i do a good bit of fishing in ballydawan, i fish two hours up and
two hours after high tide , its a good place for big bass i have also caught doggies, flounder,dab, rockling down there, most of the bass fell for mackerel
on a pennel rig, other baits worth a go are lug or crab n squid coctail or rag
if your after bass thers no need for a huge cast there usually close in, its best if its dark,

Hello curno..
Best I can do for you is ask you to come along with us some night???
I am just getting back into the fishing after a brief spell away from it so will be out quite a bit over the next few weeks...
Its all very well telling you to use different rigs and that and not in any way taking from what the lads have told you ( good advice) but if your just starting and dont know about the tides then I'M just guessing that you probably dont know about different rigs and stuff too.
You are more than welcome to come with us and pick up a few pointers...

It is better to have fished and blanked than never to have fished at all.
