Menai Magic

Brilliant fun day for our first trip on the Menai Strait yesterday. We wanted to make the most of the sunshine despite the tide being a little too big to that normally preferred on the Menai thus restricting us to just a couple marks.   We still managed a good few species, keeping us all busy through our 5hrs afloat – dogs, whiting, huss, dab, mackerel, sea scorpion, small tope and a fair number of small smoothhound.   Looking forward to the months ahead chasing a wealth of species along this stretch of water.

Menai Wrecking

It was an interesting start to the day yesterday for our first trip from Port Dinorwic for 2020.   It was an excellent forecast with the weather gods looking kindly upon us for a change. 8am sail though in the thickest fog I’ve witnessed for a long while.   It did clear up within half an hour and left us with gloriously calm seas and sunshine for our 2hr steam off to the wrecks. Fish came aboard from the start, slow for the first half hour as the tide started to run, then it was a continual haul of pollack […]

Back on the Menai for autumn & winter

The weather this last month has been woeful, hence last Sunday we decided after our trip to run the boat around to Port Dinorwic on the Menai Strait a little earlier than planned for the 2020 winter season.   With the shelter of the Strait we would at least be able to enjoy some great fishing whilst the wind blew.

Sunday Funday

We had a good day last Sunday as the winds dropped and allowed us to enjoy some good inshore fishing. On the drift we managed a plentiful amount of wrasse and pollack to 3lb. Great sport on light gear.  An anchor inshore before heading off to the deeps we managed a good mixed bag including a nice 30lb tope for Mersey Angler Mickey Duff Holyhead Deep was disappointing again compared to the usual frantic fishing. We did manage a good number of huss, with a few tope but no spurdogs again! More photos in Gallery 261 Bookings for 2021 aboard My […]

Return to the Strait – Oct 2020

We will be returning to the beautiful Menai Strait and Port Dinorwic Marina for the first week of October 2020. On the Strait we enjoy some superb winter sport from a variety of different species. The Menai Strait is mystical part of Wales that affords shelter and calm seas from most wind directions! Within the sheltered waters, most trips see a succession of species including whiting, dabs, codling, dogfish, huss, smoothhound, conger and an array of other mini species. Venturing outside when weather allows we encounter plenty of thornback rays and spurdog amongst others. Our 5hr fun competitions also return […]

The species are adding up

Our My Way 2 species hunt is keeping anglers on their toes as the season progresses.  We’ve spent many days offshore this year with various trips, together with missing out on lockdown, the species days have been limited, however we are still adding to the list as weather allows. With big spring tides this week we spent our time moving around various marks trying to tempt a variety of different fish to our baits. We managed in collating a respectful number that included bull huss, coalfish, codling, corkwing wrasse, cuckoo wrasse, dogfish, mackerel, pollack, starry smoothhound, tompot blenny, pouting, poor […]

Happy September

September is the time of year offshore when the fishing slows down. Earlier this week we managed another trip to the wrecks with some great results. The last few wrecking trips have always yielded plenty of pollack but with the average size down slightly on the prime June – Aug trips.  However on our most recent trips we managed to keep a fairly respectable 8lb average for the day and fill the boxes with prime fillets of fish. Great fishing and weather enjoyed by all afloat on My Way 2 More photos in Gallery 261 Bookings for 2021 aboard My Way […]

Porbeagle Shark

4 years ago with My Way 1 we set out to hook a shark and on our first attempt managed a porbeagle of around 200lb.   In 2017 we had a couple fruitless efforts, a few brief runs but no real success.   We often have the occasional encounter with sharks when wreck fishing but always stick to the job in hand – pollack, cod and coalfish.   On 15th September, we set off at first light for our first dedicated attempt at sharks with My Way 2.   Half way through our day one porbeagle estimated at 200lb+ surfaced […]

Getting out when we can

Weather has been very trying of late with a good number of trips cancelled. We managed to sneak out one day this week and head offshore onto the wrecks. This time of year it can be a case of moving around and searching for the fish. The wrecks that we favour through early summer still produce as autumn gets underway, but not in the numbers we normally enjoy. Fortunately for our most recent trip the fish came out to play. We started off at a couple shallower wrecks to usual at 220ft and were rewarded with a good number of […]
