Fun fishing

Enjoyable few days afloat just gone with some fine weather especially yesterday with light wind and sunshine. Fishing was slow at times and hectic others. Sadly nothing to break any records but a generally steady stream of whiting, codling, dabs and a few other species keeping us busy. Great seeing friends when afloat on the Menai Strait, they often manage a few great photos of My Way 2

Scottish Invasion

Fantastic weekends fishing with the friends from north of the border and their adopted clan member from the Wirral. Saturday spent within the Menai Strait chasing a variety of species on light and LRF gear. Sunday was a morning out in Caernarfon Bay after rays and huss, then back inside for bits n pieces. Weather gods looked down favourably on us as we enjoyed for the best part of the weekend calm seas & sunshine. Species count was pretty good for mid January – whiting, dab, dogfish, codling, huss, thornback, conger, pout, poor cod and ls sea scorpion, spurdog and […]

A day with Halton SAC

Great day afloat today with Halton SAC for the first of our 2019 Pure Fishing fun competitions. Sheltered from the 30mph NW winds the Menai Strait was lovely and calm plus fished well as the 8 Anglers battled out for the first prize. Fishing was never going to rewrite any records, but a steady flow of whiting and codling, together with dabs, dogs and a variety of mini species kept everyone focused on the win. In total, the lads caught 212 fish in the 4hr match. The battle for top spot was hard fought, with Norman and Andy matching each […]

Last trip of 2018

Yesterday saw the last of our fun competitions for 2018.  All our fun comps have been generously sponsored by Pure Fishing (UK) ltd and this trip had a brand new reel as prize for the winner.   Fishing was patchy at times as we moved around the Menai Strait looking for both quantity and species to add to the score cards.  The day ended up with a respectable 9 species for late December, whiting, codling, dab, dogfish, ss sea scorpion, ls sea scorpion, poor cod, coalfish and also a grey gurnard. For quantity the lads amassed a total of 234 […]

Nice one Arthur

Hard 5hrs afloat yesterday, even the whiting played hard to get. Never the less, the 10 Anglers aboard recorded over 200 fish in our December fun competition, again generously sponsored by Pure Fishing (UK) Ltd. Big whiting, small whiting, small codling and the odd dog and mini species making up the catches today. Eventual winner on the day was local rod Arthur Beechey, a popular and accomplished international angler. Having already amassed an envious armoury of Angling tackle, Arthur kindly donated his prize to young Emily Hardy, the only jnr aboard My Way 2. Crisps in one hand and hot chocolate […]

Lovely few days afloat

  We’ve just enjoyed a few lovely days fishing within the Menai Strait. Large plump whiting were the main catches, with many retained for eating.  Additionally we had dogs, dabs, codling, huss, mini species and some smoothhounds a surprise catch for December. With the glorious weather and tranquil surrounds it was a lovely time afloat once more.
