I've not fished swansea beach myself. Someone else might be able to answer better.



Try fish along the docks pier wall...or maybe half way up the beach where the old foot bridge used to be from around the pipe. I think the rest of the beach is prettty featureless unless you are more from the mubles side.

I'd use lugworm and maybe cockles from swansea beach. Doggies are likely...otherwise known as "mumbles marlin". Not sure about anything else sorry. I'd also try to go for a clipped 2 hook flapper. Hope this helps
