Blue Anchor Bay (Somerset)
Blue Anchor Bay can be found between Minehead and Watchet and has a sea wall and a beach.

The Sea Wall- The sea wall goes from the Blue Anchor pub to the caravan site. You can park right next to the wall and it is a good option if heavy showers are on the cards. In the winter the main catches are cod, whiting, thornback ray, pouting, and doggies. As the warmer weather approaches you can expect doggies, smooth hounds, conger, thornback ray, bass, flounder, whiting and pouting, to baits such as squid, mackerel, ragworm, sand eels and peelers. When the doggies go on the prowl here you can expect your rods to be bouncing all over the place.

The Beach- When the tide is in the beach starts from outside the driftwood cafe and goes as far as Dunster beach. The beach has a line of pebbles which the tide comes up to but past that it is mainly sand and broken rock. You can expect to catch the same fish at the same time of year as the sea wall but you may have a little more space on the beach.
