Bristol Channel Fishing

The Bristol Channel (Welsh: Môr Hafren (Severn Seas) is a major inlet in the island of Great Britain, separating South Wales from South West England and extending from the lower estuary of the River Severn to that part of the North Atlantic Ocean known as the Celtic Sea. It takes its name from the English city of Bristol and is over 30 miles (50km) across at its widest point.

The ground here is a mix of clean ground, rough patches, rock and coral reefs. Some of the more noted marks are The Ledge just off Sully Island, One fathom Bank off Barry, ground adjacent to Flat Holm Island, The Monkstone, and the sand banks called Cardiff Grounds.

During the warmer months we head west to the Aberthaw area, Stout and and the Nash reef off Monknash, the Nash area is awesome for the rays.

Reef ground is also visited on the English side of the Bristol Channel for bass, pollock, wrasse and tope.

Longer trips west to wrecks and Lundy Island are undertaken in the summer. Ilfracombe Harbour, North Devon.
