Take a look at this mark in Cardigan Bay. George & I fished this a week ago for wrasse as it is deep and weedy - all the features that Keith mentioned to look for in a wrasse mark including the anemones etc. We blanked but will head back when the swell is a little less and clarity better. Never had bass here which is a surprise, but it looks awesome! The reef in front of us is the same one as in the shot taken from the cliff path above.

,tim how many times have you bass fished that mark?
Only a couple of short sessions last summer - the trouble is it faces due West and so can get a massive swell. We looked in there during the winter storms this year and the waves were coming right over the top.
In all fairness we only tried surface plugs last year so when we know there are some bass around we will try with some deeper plugs and the soft lures. There's a real good current along the channel in front, and at high water that reef in front is covered. My gut tells me there have to be fish, yet we have seen very few people fishing this mark. The beauty is, you can park 50 yards from where you fish!

Si, I even drove through here after we met you at Poppitt on the way to Cwm Yr Eglws (spelling?) - I am sure we told you we had fished it last year? Sorry - no secrets, just some nice photos! We have yet to catch a fish here which surprises me but if you fancy a crack at it later in the year I could use the help!

What about tide movement Tim - any?

Marks close by with some may also be worth a look.

Julian, fair bit of tide here but except for the flow across you between the reef and shore, there's not much current if that makes sense due to shelter from headlands. There is a small cove just around the corner too which we have yet to catch from. Limited access as the cliffs are quite (very!) steep to the left (as you look out to sea). The bottom is covered in kelp so something tells me it must hold bass, just haven't sussed how or when to ambush them. Only 35 mins from home, so plenty of chance this year for short late sesssions after work.

By the way, Julian - amazing bass in your avatar!
