Pollack A Plenty

Another great day afloat April 14th, laughs & fish despite a blustery west wind restricting play. Plenty of pollack to be had for all onboard, along with codling coalfish, mackerel, herring and a few ballan and cuckoo wrasse on the drift. At anchor dogs, whiting and huss, with dabs, poor cod and pouting adding to the fun. Sadly a blankety blank on the spurdogs again.

Holyhead in March

With My Way due back in the water this coming week, we take a small look at the great fishign that cna be expected through March. In more recent years the weather has become a lot more settled than we are generally used to in March. Granted it is still cold and with the odd fresh set of winds to try our patience, but the calmer seas have My Way setting sail regularly with some great rewards for her anglers. Fish are normally plentiful with resident species through March including dogfish, whiting, dabs, codling, conger, ray and bull huss plus […]

2012 – angler fish for My Way

An angler fish is normally found in cold deep waters, unlike this one caught back in 2012 caught during a drift in 50ft of water under the rocks 😉 .Guessing the chances of ever seeing another one are pretty slim! On a mixed day of General Fishing, breaking the day up between anchor and drifting, up to 20 species of fish can be caught; ranging from mini species of a few oz in weight to some great double figure specimen tope For more on General Fishing aboard My Way, click here Please share:

Holyhead General Fishing – Part 3

This article was written for Boat Fishing Monthly magazine and can be found in the August 2012 issue. When setting out on a day general fishing, we all have high hopes of catching a variety of species and as quickly as we possibly can. Rig selection though is critical and all too often I see anglers, having spent a small fortune on top quality rods, reels and bait, letting themselves down by sticking to their favourite rig, simply because it caught well the last time out. The general scratch rigs I talk about often need adapting to where you are […]

Holyhead General Fishing – Part 2

General Fishing can be used to describe various types of fishing, for many it is when that planned day goes slightly pear shaped and your intended targets don’t play ball. It also describes in fairness much of the fishing to be had off Anglesey and especially from Holyhead. Yes we have our smoothhounds, tope, and spurdogs to name a few, but we’re not blessed with some of the fishing that you read about regular on the south coast I’m talking about the big plaice, turbot and bream etc. Sadly you cannot charter from Holyhead with those particular fish as specific […]

Holyhead General Fishing – Part 1

The vast majority of experienced anglers have a specific target in mind when they book a day out boat fishing. Sadly though, we have a number of external influences on our sport such as particular time of year, large tidal range and worst of all the good old British weather.   Despite all our best plans, we can’t always target the species we enjoy catching the most. Never the less, most anglers are willing to take the rough with the smooth and assuming here that a day afloat can still be had will quickly adjust their armoury with a selection […]

Smoothhound Fishing

North Wales has long been associated with some very good catches of smoothound. The fish have been targeted by both boat and shore anglers with some good results. Smuts as they have become more affectionately known to many anglers can be found around many boat marks off Holyhead, Trearddur Bay, Llanddwyn and Whitebeach. All these marks have given anglers some quality specimen fish over many year, the very same areas also offering shore anglers the opportunity to hook into this hard fighting species. Fishing for smoothies in waters relatively shallow at only 45’ can be a very exhilarating experience. Wigan […]
