Dinas Dinlle

Dinas Dinlle is a great spot for sea fishing, a vast beach with plenty of good spots to fish. Boat fishermen have regular catches of Tope out in the bay, it’s a well known hot spot for the boats. Moreover it is one of only a few spots you can catch Tope from the shore.

There is ample parking all down the beach, there are also plenty of fishing marks which require a bit of a trek. During summer the beach can be full of tourists, it’s best fishing it at night in summer to avoid the crowds. That said it also fishes very well during the hours of darkness, so it’s win win. Just try to fish on an incoming tide going into darkness.

Dinas Dinlle is also a cracking bass beach and produced well even during winter 2018/2019. Bass are usually difficult to come across in the colder months so it is unusual for this to happen. The reports have been consistent. There are some cheap mixed rigs available here

Dinas Dinlle is pretty much a snag free fishing mark as it is mostly onto a sandy bottom. It fishes at any state of the tide, avoid the smaller high tides, just so you get a bit more depth. Do a reccy at low tide if you get chance to find the gullies as this is where the fish will be easier to get. They will always follow the gullies in search of any food that gets washed in.

There is a caravan and campsite at the back of the beach too if you want to stay over. A shop and a chippy so you can get something to eat if needed, toilets too.
