Inshore fun

Inshore today and the fishing was far better than predicted! Drifting to start the day and Abraham’s Bosom was alive with ballan & cuckoo wrasse with the odd pollack and mackerel. At anchor further down the coast a good number of rays and huss, together with dogs and bucket filling mackerel with a few other species. We ended the day in Trearddur Bay, hoping for a tope. We had rays again and huss, a couple runs and one tope to the side of the boat sadly no more. More photos in Gallery 269

Sick

We’ve been enjoying some great weather of late and our days are fish filled together with a few laughs freezers are being stocked up. This today we had the average size below par with 5-6lb double shots coming aboard regularly, but eventually we found some bigger fish later on in the day. The new Berkley Sick Flanker once again showing it’s awesome fish catching abilities. More photos in Gallery 269
