Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Our first adventure onto the wrecks yesterday and the guys did well!   It’s early season for us, we normally start our wrecking trips early June. But having researched a few wrecks that we’ve never been too I was keen to locate them more than anything and judge the potential. Having assembled a Motley Crue of My Way regulars we set off with some trepidation and excitement. Early season, varying depths, sea temperature so many things to consider but our day was superb. The first wreck delivered 4, 5, 6lb pollack with a solitary codling. All good for mid May, […]

Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge – day three

Last Weds 29th May, we had the third of this years Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenges. It was a day to remember for sure, not really for the best reasons.

Still everyone struggled on and Mersey based angler Chris came out the eventual winner with a hound of 9lb. Credit to Chris, who fought through some serious sea sickness to continue fishing and take the prize that day. As always big thanks to our sponsors at Pure Fishing UK Ltd for […]

Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge – day two

Me and my big mouth in closing after day one looking forward to better weather for day two in our competition . 17-20mph north winds not the best, but workable with a decreasing forecast. The morning we were greeted with 22-30mph. After poking our nose around the breakwater, we came back in! Tea, coffee, chit chat and putting the world to rights, been a fun morning 😁 With easing winds after lunch we headed back out and set the crabs to do their thing.18hounds caught our total, all of them bar a couple between 6 an 8lb, real small sharks compared […]

Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge – day one

What a day Monday was! Strong winds in the morning that gradually abated into the afternoon. Sadly the heavens then opened and a few hrs of torrential downpour tested everyone’s patience. The hounds never read the script either, really heavy going considering the good smoothie fishing we’ve enjoyed lately. Only 10 hounds boated today despite some courageous efforts, the majority around 6lb with the only double a 10lb 10oz specimen for St Helens angler Dennis, winning him a brilliant new rod and reel combo from PENN, thanks to our sponsors Pure Fishing UK Ltd. Looking forward to better weather and […]
