This, that and the other

I love a mixed day of fishing. Monday we planned for a couple anchors for some smoothhound with drifting our glorious coastline for a variety of species sandwiched in between. Plenty of small pollack, codling, coalfish with ballan and cuckoo wrasse on the drift, excellent sport on light gear fishing around the South Stack coastline, that include a suprise appearance from a small Rock Goby. The smoothhounds came out to play, with a great number landed to 16lb. Again, fishing with light rods and reels these smoothhounds put up an epic battle for all concerned.

Corey cruising

Another day afloat and another superb 20lb smoothhound for first timer Corey Roberts, who broke his duck on Sunday with an 8lber, followed by a 15lb and topped off with a 20lb hound as I was just about to call lines for the day. A mixed bag of fish at anchor and while drifting, the hounds not as hectic as we all would’ve liked. But everyone ( well other than chicken Paul ) managing to catch one, with a few taking two or three. Our hound season is only just getting started, lasting till the end of June the signs […]

20lb hound x 2

20lb 2oz hound for Bob Deakin on Saturday, a new personal best and new club record for Meltham & District SAC. However the new club record was short-lived. The MAD-SAC smoothhound club record lasted all but a few hours. Blakey beating Bobs earlier hound by 5ounces to record a cool 20lb 7oz smoothie. The smoothhound landed on a Greys GR100S 20lb boat rod and Abu 7000C he won with us on one of our Pure Fishing Competition days.

Tale of two weather fronts

A tale of two weather fronts the last couple days. Friday a NE 5-6 hampered play and fishing, then yesterday a variable forecast of light winds and calm seas. Friday we had rain and wind that gave a slow day but did include a few hounds for the guys. Then today sunshine and calm seas saw plenty of dogs whiting and dabs to start with, ballans, pollack, cuckoos, wrasse and codling to 4lb on the drift. Plus some good early season smoothhound fishing that included 2 x 20lb … 3 personal bests and two new club records. By my reckoning […]

Hound Happiness

Superb fun day afloat on Thursday having a little prospect into the number and quality of hounds that have moved in. Pretty decent day afloat for mid May, we managed to boat 27 between the four of us, a few in 6-8lb bracket. But the majority low doubles, but a few too topping 16, 18 and 19lb. Great fun for an early effort on the hounds. More photos in Gallery 244

More fishing

Calm seas and glorious sunshine!. Plenty caught on the drift pollack, coalfish and codling to a few lb mixed in with ballan wrasse and the extremely colourful male cuckoo wrasse. After two poor days in Holyhead Deep we tried a different mark today. Fishing wasn’t electric again, however we managed a steady flow including smoothhounds, thornback Ray, huss and the odd doggie. Top angler for the day was Sandra with the only tope landed. Lovely 25lb male that gave a great 20minute battle More photos in Gallery 243

Species Hunting

Thoroughly enjoyable couple days afloat chasing a variety of species for those on a mission. Plenty of fish inshore, especially on the drift with pollack, coalfish, codling and some amazingly coloured cuckoo wrasse being caught. Holyhead Deep however has disappointed both yesterday and today, with tope and spurdog failing to make an appearance, but hey that’s fishing 😉 Still some great, weather, a few good laughs and quite a few species card appearances.
