Happy September

September is the time of year offshore when the fishing slows down. Earlier this week we managed another trip to the wrecks with some great results. The last few wrecking trips have always yielded plenty of pollack but with the average size down slightly on the prime June – Aug trips.  However on our most recent trips we managed to keep a fairly respectable 8lb average for the day and fill the boxes with prime fillets of fish. Great fishing and weather enjoyed by all afloat on My Way 2 More photos in Gallery 261 Bookings for 2021 aboard My Way […]

Porbeagle Shark

4 years ago with My Way 1 we set out to hook a shark and on our first attempt managed a porbeagle of around 200lb.   In 2017 we had a couple fruitless efforts, a few brief runs but no real success.   We often have the occasional encounter with sharks when wreck fishing but always stick to the job in hand – pollack, cod and coalfish.   On 15th September, we set off at first light for our first dedicated attempt at sharks with My Way 2.   Half way through our day one porbeagle estimated at 200lb+ surfaced […]

Getting out when we can

Weather has been very trying of late with a good number of trips cancelled. We managed to sneak out one day this week and head offshore onto the wrecks. This time of year it can be a case of moving around and searching for the fish. The wrecks that we favour through early summer still produce as autumn gets underway, but not in the numbers we normally enjoy. Fortunately for our most recent trip the fish came out to play. We started off at a couple shallower wrecks to usual at 220ft and were rewarded with a good number of […]

Fish will be the masters

The day came good. Struggled through the first few wrecks again on Friday despite heading in a different direction than previous days. But thankfully wreck number four decided to deliver. Plenty of pollack being caught, lower average than normal but a good few around the 8lb weight too.  To quote a friend recently “the fish will always be masters”  But it’s good to report the bad days and not just the good days Great laugh, sunshine, calm seas and a few good fish. Another enjoyable day afloat.   More photos in Gallery 253 Wreck Fishing 2020 Please message or call […]

Hands across the sea

Another hard day afloat on Wednesday. Plenty of fish showing but not feeding so well, the few we managed to winkle out coughing up sandeels. Was a pleasure to meet up with Kit Dunne today from Wicklow Boat Charters in Ireland. We’ve often discussed meeting up in the Irish Sea, two charters from two countries and having a fish together. We’ve been friends for many years and met up initially on the International Match fishing scene. Kit proudly representing Ireland and myself likewise for the Welsh National Team. After a few cancellations with weather we managed it at last. We’re […]

Settled weather

Hard morning but a great afternoon today. The first few wrecks giving up just 1 pollack for our 2 and a half hrs fishing. Fortunately the last couple fished well and we managed to fill the fish boxes with prime pollack More photos in Gallery 253 Please share:

This weather!

The weather this summer can be best described as appalling. Sadly we’ve had to cancel far more trips than we’ve sailed. Fortunately when we have set sail the fishing has been good. Holyhead Deep has been loaded with pack tope and huss with the odd spurdog. In the bay today a great mixed bag including tope to 42lb. Inshore trips we’ve had a variety of species at anchor & on the drift. Best inshore codling went 5lb and pollack to 4lb. Last Friday was the first Pure Fishing Sponsored fun match for a long while, plenty of species including rays, […]
