Ogmore estuary-river mouth
Although I dont fish up the estuary often, I have heared good reports of decent size flounder and schoolie bass being caught, also sea-trout/sewin can be caught on evening tides near the water treatment bridge.
I prefer to fish the mouth of the estuary, where better size bass can be caught, also coddling can be picked up in the winter months.
This is one of my personal favourites, on low tide it offers a clean sandy bottom good for ray and flounders. I`ve also seen & caught turbot on the turn here, from feb onwards.
Schoolie and large bass can be caught on all parts of the tide, but I prefer 2hrs before the top of the tide, to produce the better fish.
Coddling can also be caught near the top of the tide, but you need to try and cast as close to the rocks on the left to catch them, as they like to swim the channel close in where the food gathers. Also the rocks to the left can be a good cod mark, as you can get out slightly further and hit the spot, known to locals as COD`S GULLEY.
These are nutorious marks for cod, as they are rock ledges with alot of water around them on high tide, with a mixed bottom there is a rich food source for these fish and fishing here will boost your chances of catching the lunker cod. I personally have never caught a cod off this mark, but have hooked good bass up to 8.5lb, also good sized conger eels tend to come in close on the high tides, being caught wth fish baits dropped over the side on high tide. The odd thornback or smalleyed ray can also be picked up by casting clear of the rocky ground and hitting the sand bars.
