Plenty of fish

After a fruitless search for spurdog on Saturday we decided on a run down the coast on Sunday instead. Plenty of pollack and the odd codling on the drift, a few keepers touching 3lb for the table. A decent mixed bag at anchor, including a good number of huss and rays. Some glorious sunshine and lovey seas adding to a great time afloat. More photos in Gallery 242

Ouch!

Fun day afloat Friday with a great crowd of individual anglers. Couple sessions in Holyhead Deeps provided a bounty of spurdogs and a good number of huss too. Drifting found a great number of early pollack and a few ballan wrasse. Nothing too big, but a few keepers making a fish supper this evening.

Together with making the brews, serving up the sausage casserole, taking the obligatory […]

Shark tagging

Enjoyable day afloat yesterday for our first trip of 2019 from Holyhead. Despite a bitterly cold east wind we had a good mixed bag inshore and spurdogs making an appearance in Holyhead Deep.  Today we were also joined by Laura from Wobby Shark Savers with a plan to tag and release all the spurs caught to assist in various scientific studies. Fortunately the first spurdog fell to Marine Biology student Portia Harris, who was keen to take part in this tagging exercise.  The exercise involves measuring and weighing of the spurdogs in the hope of recapture and then new information […]
