At Strumble Head a moderate cast takes your bait in deep towards big congers. On spring tides you can lose tackle on the rocky seabed, so it’s best to concentrate on slack water. Good for mackerel and garfish; great for conger, huss, pollack, wrasse and occasional ling early in the year. Sandeels or mackerel strips are excellent baits for bull huss, while big conger will take chunks of squid or whole mackerel.

Take the A40 to Goodwick. At the final roundabout near the harbour, follow the signs for Llanwnda until Strumble Head is signposted. There is parking available.
