Went camping last week for 6 days and took my plugging gear...
Got a few small sessions in....
Didnt expect much as its so busy there but with the tide's a day off the highest thought well worth a go.
Had 3 sessions with the last 2 nothing caught and nothing even seen but it has really calmed down by then. It on the first session there was a slight blow and a bit of chop to the water with plenty of fish moving about and topping...
Got into a few schoolies then it died as the fish must of dissapeared up the channels....
Was only fishing the very start of the flood and tryed on the surface with no joy...
Zip Baits Irony,Gunfish and IMA Popkey with no joy...
Caught the fish on the KOMOMO II ASANAGO Flashing Plate which was is my turn to lure anyway....
Tried my Sasuke 140 sandborer,SF 125 blue mullet and Tide minnow gold with nothing on any of them!!!
I reckon all the commotion was the killer and I reckon that place with no other about would produce more fish and bigger fish....
Should have took my bait rods and dug some blow lug as plenty of flatties moving about when I was wading....
Nice session and a dead nice trip anyway and gave me a chance to try out of the new lures.....

AM TRYING TO UPLOAD PICS BUT NEED RESIZING IF ANYONE KNOWS OF AN EASY WAY~!!!!

Hi Nick

I last visited Shell 3 years ago (end of August) and only had the one session as the family restricted me from more. A great venue with quite a few fish at 1st light to the South of the island on Aile Mag Slider for me. Been itching to return and fish it properly. Was a big tide and I found the fish during the 1st hour or two of the flood.

Hope that may help if you return. BTW although I live on South Coast i am from Penyffordd originally so local to you.
