Shark Fishing

Fantastic day last Thursday shark fishing. We managed to raise two into our chum trail. The video ( thanks to Graham ) the first to appear, but no hook up. An hr later a bigger porbeagle hit a bait and stripped line at a rate of knots. As the wind picked up to 20knots, it made for hard work for the crew to keep in contact with the shark whilst I manoeuvred the boat in between swells. A 90minute tussle, a run around the boat, 4 leader touches and finally we could take a few snaps and release after recovery […]

Species Hunting

It’s not all about big fish, searching out all manner of species both big and small is great fun. We had a fantastic time fishing around the Pier wall in Trefor last week searching for mini species.  The fish were plentiful. 8ft of clear water we watched in awe as the fish swam below us in great numbers.  Common Blenny, Rock Goby, Corwking Wrasse, Lesser Weaver, small Pollack and small Whiting. Brilliant fun on very light gear and tiny hooks. More photos in Gallery 271

Spring tides

The spring tides last week saw our fishing restricted to closer inshore marks. Drifting wasn’t as good as I had hoped, both the wrasse and small pollack were few. Anchor worked proved better, with a plentiful amount of rays, huss a few small tope and many others.  More photos in Gallery 271

Busy Sept

We’ve enjoyed some great weather of late, limiting our updates as we’re out fishing. A trip offshore earlier in the month resulted oil a another bumper day of freezer filling for the guys aboard My Way 2. Boxes filled with fish, mainly pollack with the odd codling and coalfish too.

Nice shot

Awesome photo from Jonathon Peers recently on our return from another successful trip into Caernarfon Bay, rays the main target with gurnards, whiting, dabs, tope, doggies, huss and more making an appearance.  The spring tides curtail adventures on the wrecks or Holyhead Deep, but allow us a great time species hunting.  Bookings for 2022 are well underway with certain dates & tides filling up quickly.  Please email or call 07971 0924046 to discuss your 2022 time afloat aboard My Way 2

Weather Window

After over a week stuck ashore it was great to hear the sea beneath us last Saturday. Thankfully the fish played ball. We had fish every drift and on every wreck, fish boxes full with Peter taming the best at just over 14lb. Really enjoyable day with a great crew of misfits. More photos in Gallery 270

First tope

Lovely evening recently with great friends Mark, Dani and family celebrating Ebony’s 16th birthday.   Pollack, wrasse and mackerel on the drift followed by dogs and huss at anchor. We had a couple tope baits out but nothing happened.   Minutes before lines up, Tylers rod screamed off, stripping line at a rate of knots. After a 20minute tussle, this fantastic 47lb tope broke the surface.   Brilliant end to a great evening afloat.

Great ending

Happy ending to a worrying situation.   Big credit to My Ways crew today that were more than keen to delay their return to port in search of a missing kayaker. Eagle eyes peered onto the waves as the southerly winds lifted the sea making it difficult to spot the missing individual.   As we made our way towards Sandy Beach a kayak was spotted, as we approached and then made contact, it was with relief we determined with HH Coastguard it was the missing person. We waited alongside until RNLI Holyhead Lifeboat Station was able to take the kayaker […]
