It's BurryPort harbour amd I think they will have to use something like a bulldozer once a week to keep it open. An old D6 at low tide will work wonders!!!

At least the sand is being moved a reasonable distance away this time instead of being dropped straight back in the same place................

This is probably a stupid question, but since I don't need to contend with tides over here, I'll ask anyway... Where the heck is the water? Is this how low low tide is? Or did they dam off the entrance to the channel before they started?

If this is the normal low tide, I can see how you would have a little trouble getting out at times!!!

Actually that's about 2hrs past low tide!!!

This is what we have to put up with. At low tide the whole area looks like the Sahara!!!

Couple the shallow water with big Atlantic rollers and it makes for some interesting conditions.



The Burry Port accent is really bad - I am NOT a local...........

Yes it's one of the best places for bass - it's their spawning grounds. They prefer live sandeels though.

Loads of black lug as well - the birds were having a great time once the machines had gone!!!

Ah cheers for that i might take a trip down there sometime and collect some blacks for the Autumn cod fishing and with worm prices these days it pays to collect your own bait. It was a great cod season last year in the upper Bristol channel and black lug is the top bait, it pays to pump a few pounds and then freeze it down

Jezzuz... I think I'd be fitting my RIB with drop-down wheels... Here I thought we had problems because our water is down a foot or two over the past 10 years!!!
