Rays & spurdogs

Fantastic time back aboard My Way 2 last Sunday, glorious sunshine and a superb crew of misfits.   Weather gods looked after us as we caught a good number of rays and spurdogs, along with doggies, dabs, small huss and a lonely whiting.   Great fun, now looking forward to our return to Holyhead for our 2022 season this coming Friday.

All done for 2021

We had our last trip of 2021 earlier this week.   We caught whiting, whiting, a few more whiting and whiting. Chadwick spoilt the day by adding an eel to our catch. A lovely calm day on the Menai Strait, with a brilliant crew of danglers.   It has been yet another difficult year for everyone, the pandemic and the mad world we wake up to each day tests our resilience.   Truth is I couldn’t have made it without you all, it’s been another epic year aboard My Way 2. We’ve kept safe, we’ve caught fish and we really […]

Conger time

With the recent storm over we’ve enjoyed a couple of days afloat on the Menai Strait. Sunday was a slower day with whiting dogs the odd huss and a solitary conger taking the baits. Yesterday the fish fed well. Armed with some good quality mackerel and squid it started off with whiting and dogs keeping us busy as we waited for the turn of tide and a move down the Strait for potential huss and conger. Fortunately neither disappointed. With only a few lads on I even managed a full days fishing myself, including 4 strap eels and a dozen […]

Been fishing

We’ve enjoyed some good trips lately. This winter, the Menai Strait has fished extremely well. As I always say, it won’t set the world alight, winter for us is a case of shorter trips, catch a few fish and have a laugh with fellow anglers.  Whiting tend to make up the bulk of the catch, with dogs, huss, dab and mini species the other catches as we fish through December into January. With the right tide and conditions we also target conger eels. After a morning filling the buckets with some good sized whiting, we headed off to a deep […]

Top Rod

Top  Really enjoyable day afloat last Saturday, despite the wind and rain early on for our first Pure Fishing Fun Competition for the winter season.   As normal for winter on the Menai plenty of whiting etched onto the scorecard to start with, followed by dogfish, pout, huss and a small 5 bearded rockling.   Amassing the most points, top rod for the day was Holyhead angler Kieran Welsh, choosing a versatile PENN Fishing   Squadron Touch Tip rod as his prize.   Great fun and a great feeling to be afloat again after lockdown and spring tide blues More […]

A tidy mixed bag including, dogfish, whiting small smoothhound pout and poor cod keeping the young anglers entertained.

Having fun

We’ve been enjoying some great mixed fishing on the Menai Strait for the passed week.  Our trips have been 5hr over high water and 7hr over low water, many a simple good days fishing and a few chasing species for anglers to tick off their tallies for the year.  Anyone catching a fish aboard My Way 2, simply uses the boat species card while afloat and takes a quick photo of the card alongside their catch.
