Busmans Holiday

Having been all but sidelined by the weather during or trip to Scotland last week we received a last minute call from our skipper there was a small change in wind and we had the potential for a day afloat.  Like myself Paul, likes to explore new marks and despite 25knots forecast, a new mark with potential was a possibility.  We we’re invited aboard Sea Dog cost free to help prosper and determine the potential. Loaded with bait that we had caught aboard My Way 2 we set off around the coastline eventually arriving at our intended mark. 180 & […]

Good weekend

We’ve enjoyed a good weekend afloat, mixed fishing on the drift and at anchor.  Saturday, we had a run around the coast rewarded with more rays than we could count, along with plenty of huss and a selection of smaller species at anchor.  Drifting we caught pollack, ballan wrasse and cuckoo wrasse. Sunday was another mixed day, this time staying more local and having our first try at the smoothhounds. The hounds were a little slow, with only two boated best at 16lb and another few lost.  Plenty of species were caught by Meltham & Diatric SAC during another of […]

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. Weather double what was forecast, torrential rain and a lack of hounds made for a frustrating day for all involved. 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 […]
