First week afloat on the Menai

We’ve been back in our winter home of Port Dinorwic Marina on the beautiful Menai Strait for a week now, and already been making use of the sheltered waters and good fishing available. With 30mph winds blowing across North Wales we have sailed a few times and been rewarded with calm seas and a very steady stream of fish. Whiting and dogfish have made the bulk of catches, with most drops being rewarded with single, double and triple of shots of fish with some of the whiting already approaching the 2lb mark and being retained for supper. The odd codling […]

Return to the Strait – Oct 2019

Following a successful winter season 2018/2019 fishing from the beautiful Menai Strait, My Way 2 will return to Port Dinorwic Marina during the first week of October 2019. On the Strait we enjoyed some superb winter sport from a variety of different species. A mystical part of Wales that affords shelter and calm seas from all wind directions! Within the sheltered waters, most trips saw a succession of species including witing, dabs, codling, dogfish, huss, smoothhound, conger and an array of other species. Venturing outside when weather allowed we caught plenty of thornback rays and spurdog amongst others. This year […]

Fish will be the masters

The day came good. Struggled through the first few wrecks again on Friday despite heading in a different direction than previous days. But thankfully wreck number four decided to deliver. Plenty of pollack being caught, lower average than normal but a good few around the 8lb weight too.  To quote a friend recently “the fish will always be masters”  But it’s good to report the bad days and not just the good days Great laugh, sunshine, calm seas and a few good fish. Another enjoyable day afloat.   More photos in Gallery 253 Wreck Fishing 2020 Please message or call […]

Hands across the sea

Another hard day afloat on Wednesday. Plenty of fish showing but not feeding so well, the few we managed to winkle out coughing up sandeels. Was a pleasure to meet up with Kit Dunne today from Wicklow Boat Charters in Ireland. We’ve often discussed meeting up in the Irish Sea, two charters from two countries and having a fish together. We’ve been friends for many years and met up initially on the International Match fishing scene. Kit proudly representing Ireland and myself likewise for the Welsh National Team. After a few cancellations with weather we managed it at last. We’re […]

Settled weather

Hard morning but a great afternoon today. The first few wrecks giving up just 1 pollack for our 2 and a half hrs fishing. Fortunately the last couple fished well and we managed to fill the fish boxes with prime pollack More photos in Gallery 253 Please share:

This weather!

The weather this summer can be best described as appalling. Sadly we’ve had to cancel far more trips than we’ve sailed. Fortunately when we have set sail the fishing has been good. Holyhead Deep has been loaded with pack tope and huss with the odd spurdog. In the bay today a great mixed bag including tope to 42lb. Inshore trips we’ve had a variety of species at anchor & on the drift. Best inshore codling went 5lb and pollack to 4lb. Last Friday was the first Pure Fishing Sponsored fun match for a long while, plenty of species including rays, […]

Wreck Fishing 2020

For years we stayed clear of wreck fishing. My Way 1, an absolute beauty of a boat that served us well for 14 years, didn’t have the power to commute to the wrecks and back in ample time with a steady 8knots her total best. My Way 2 is a different matter a fast and spacious Offshore 105 powered by an impressive 420hp Iveco engine. Cruising offshore at a genuine 14knots with a loaded speed of 20knots if required, the vast majority of all the wrecks we have been fishing now well within reach … quickly. Studying charts for tides, […]

Happy Tuesday

Forecast for Tuesday was a little suspect when looking forward a few days earlier, with southerly winds increasing each time I looked. Thankfully, they eased off and gave us a chance to get back out to the wrecks before the winds blew in. Different to the previous day when we fished a few different wrecks we only fished the one wreck this day given the inclement weather ahead. It produced! The day started off slow with slack water, but as soon as the tide started to move the fish came on the feed. Pollack to just shy of 13lb and […]
