is situated at the left-hand end of Penarth Promenade and is home to the Penarth sea anglers club. Parking along this promenade
can be an issue so set out early to get a space. The pier is open at various times depending on what season but in general
expect to be on there around and off by .
is only permitted between the months of October and April and most Sundays see some form of match taking place so it can get
very busy. Fishing is only allowed towards the end of the pier, the very end of the pier has restricted access so if you’re
casting your bait out into deep water this can be an issue. Although fishing close to the pier itself often provides
best results. A drop net to retrieve any large catch is essential here.
either side of the Pier can also provide excellent fishing and seems to fish well in most places. This area has easy
access and can be fished over high or low tide although we tend to fish it over low. The sea bed mainly consists of sand with
some rocky/ seaweed patches. The beach itself has quite a steady drop off and does get a little muddy at low water. There
are a few slipways one situated on the left of the pier and one by the lifeboat station, these make for easy fishing. Fishing
close to either side of the pier can also prove productive.
include lug, rag mackerel and squid; expect to catch conger, cod, whiting, rockling with bass showing up in summer months.
