Last trip from Menai March 2019

We struggled with a few hrs of slow fishing inshore yesterday but it soon turned into spurdog madness when we headed out to deeper water as the tide slackened. A good mixed bag of species topped off with a plentiful amount of spurs from a few lb to 17lb caught by everyone.  Great fishing, great company, great chicken curry ( with plenty of chicken, thanks Neil ) and some lovey weather enjoyed for the time of year.  Now it’s back to Holyhead and the great fishing on offer over the next 6months

Fun fishing

Enjoyable few days afloat just gone with some fine weather especially yesterday with light wind and sunshine. Fishing was slow at times and hectic others. Sadly nothing to break any records but a generally steady stream of whiting, codling, dabs and a few other species keeping us busy. Great seeing friends when afloat on the Menai Strait, they often manage a few great photos of My Way 2

Pure Fishing Feb fun match

Battle lines were drawn today for the February fun competition sponsored by Pure Fishing UK Ltd. Lighter winds than the last few days and sunshine had everyone in high spirits. Sadly though the fish forgot to turn up in any real numbers. A really hard slog for 4 hrs with very few fish returning to the Anglers, we did manage whiting, codling and a few dogfish. However a consistent run of fish helped Ian turn out the eventual winner, choosing a brand new PENN Squall reel as his reward

Scottish Invasion

Fantastic weekends fishing with the friends from north of the border and their adopted clan member from the Wirral. Saturday spent within the Menai Strait chasing a variety of species on light and LRF gear. Sunday was a morning out in Caernarfon Bay after rays and huss, then back inside for bits n pieces. Weather gods looked down favourably on us as we enjoyed for the best part of the weekend calm seas & sunshine. Species count was pretty good for mid January – whiting, dab, dogfish, codling, huss, thornback, conger, pout, poor cod and ls sea scorpion, spurdog and […]

A day with Halton SAC

Great day afloat today with Halton SAC for the first of our 2019 Pure Fishing fun competitions. Sheltered from the 30mph NW winds the Menai Strait was lovely and calm plus fished well as the 8 Anglers battled out for the first prize. Fishing was never going to rewrite any records, but a steady flow of whiting and codling, together with dabs, dogs and a variety of mini species kept everyone focused on the win. In total, the lads caught 212 fish in the 4hr match. The battle for top spot was hard fought, with Norman and Andy matching each […]
