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. This photo they then upload to the My Way 2 Species Hunt 2020 Facebook Group Page and we keep track of who has caught […]

It’s been wet

Despite the strong northerly winds of late we’ve enjoyed some calm seas within the Menai Strait this last week. Fishing has been on the whole good, but also at times unpredictable. One day plenty of hounds, small tope and a mixture of other species. And the last couple the mainstay being huss, dogs and whiting, quite possibly due to the coloured water with strong northerly winds blowing outside.     Been a wet couple days too but enjoyable with rays, whiting, dabs, mini species adding to the catches already mentioned.   More photos in Gallery 262 COVID19 Information pack Bookings […]

First week afloat on the Menai

We’ve been back in our winter home of Port Dinorwic Marina on the beautiful Menai Strait for a week now, and already been making use of the sheltered waters and good fishing available. With 30mph winds blowing across North Wales we have sailed a few times and been rewarded with calm seas and a very steady stream of fish. Whiting and dogfish have made the bulk of catches, with most drops being rewarded with single, double and triple of shots of fish with some of the whiting already approaching the 2lb mark and being retained for supper. The odd codling […]

Spurs and huss

Fishing aboard My Way yesterday was hectic in the the small window of settled weather Monday brought after the high winds of the weekend. After the glorious calm start to the day, we had a great few hours inshore catching a variety of species, dogs, whiting, huss, dabs etc.  By lunch time the winds had increased as forecast, fortunately the lumpy see only lasted an hour and the tide turned to flood with the wind direction. The spurdogs started to hit the baits as soon as they touched the bottom of the 220ft depth we were fishing. Plenty in the 6-8lb […]

Friday 27th October saw us fish the final day of our Pure Fishing summer & autumn species competitions. The first leg was fished on October 6th, which saw Wirral based angler Micky Duff set a commanding points lead of 175 to all those fishing the 2nd day in the hope of winning the Greys Uptider and Penn Fathom 20 reel available to the winner of the most points. Our day started off with a change of plan, we had hoped to head straight out to Holyhead Deeps and fish the last of the ebb tide for possible spurdogs. Sadly the […]

25mph winds, Keith And I went carping

After a great day afloat on Friday 27th, with spurs, huss, congers and thornback ray amongst the catches, westerly Force 5 to 6 winds swept through Holyhead cancelling our weekend afloat. Undeterred and still wanting some fishing, My Way regular Keith and myself decided on a day at Llyn Y Gors fishery on Saturday 28th October, chasing some of the smaller carp and silver fish on the pleasure lake. I’d had a couple slow sessions at the lake over recent weeks landing only one or two carp each trip, so today I was determined to put into practise all that […]
