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 […]

Dad & Lad time

A day off for myself and Harry yesterday and we decided on a day at Llyn Y Gors pleasure lake, chasing a few of the smaller carp on the rods and also other species to the poles. The fishing wasn’t as hectic as we would have liked, or indeed as enjoyed on previous occasions. Similar to sea fishing, fresh water species are also affected by changing weather patterns and are equally susceptible to changes in pressure. Despite this and the breezy conditions, the sun shone for most of the day and we managed to land quite a few fish between us both.  […]

All 4 anglers, hoping to amass a good amount of points to see them win the rod & reel combo on offer in October. With spring tides and a bay that had been battered with strong […]
