Species Hunting

It’s not all about big fish, searching out all manner of species both big and small is great fun. We had a fantastic time fishing around the Pier wall in Trefor last week searching for mini species.  The fish were plentiful. 8ft of clear water we watched in awe as the fish swam below us in great numbers.  Common Blenny, Rock Goby, Corwking Wrasse, Lesser Weaver, small Pollack and small Whiting. Brilliant fun on very light gear and tiny hooks. More photos in Gallery 271

Inshore fun

Excellent fun inshore chasing a few species, drifting for the morning followed by an afternoon at anchor. Plenty of wrasse around, ballans and cuckoos, great fun on light tackle. With added pollack, coalfish, scad and a few nice codling for John. Holyhead Deep was tiring!  Spurdog and pack tope every drop, with a few double shots testing the muscles. Final anchor in the bay yielded a handful of hounds to cap a great day afloat with the crew from Milnrow. More photos in Gallery 266
