Rays & spurdogs

Fantastic time back aboard My Way 2 last Sunday, glorious sunshine and a superb crew of misfits.   Weather gods looked after us as we caught a good number of rays and spurdogs, along with doggies, dabs, small huss and a lonely whiting.   Great fun, now looking forward to our return to Holyhead for our 2022 season this coming Friday.

All done for 2021

We had our last trip of 2021 earlier this week.   We caught whiting, whiting, a few more whiting and whiting. Chadwick spoilt the day by adding an eel to our catch. A lovely calm day on the Menai Strait, with a brilliant crew of danglers.   It has been yet another difficult year for everyone, the pandemic and the mad world we wake up to each day tests our resilience.   Truth is I couldn’t have made it without you all, it’s been another epic year aboard My Way 2. We’ve kept safe, we’ve caught fish and we really […]

Conger Christmas

This week before we all slow down to celebrate Christmas we’ve enjoyed some much welcome settled weather in North Wales.  Our recent trips have been set out to sail over the low water period, starting with some scratching around for whiting, dabs dogfish and mini species followed by a crack at the Menai Congers and Huss. The congers have been feeding well, with everyone catching often 2 or 3 each in the last few trips.  Nothing of a monstrous size sadly, the best going 20lb, but still a glut of congers that can put a good bend in a rod […]

Conger time

With the recent storm over we’ve enjoyed a couple of days afloat on the Menai Strait. Sunday was a slower day with whiting dogs the odd huss and a solitary conger taking the baits. Yesterday the fish fed well. Armed with some good quality mackerel and squid it started off with whiting and dogs keeping us busy as we waited for the turn of tide and a move down the Strait for potential huss and conger. Fortunately neither disappointed. With only a few lads on I even managed a full days fishing myself, including 4 strap eels and a dozen […]

Ray day

Weather restricted our fishing to the Menai Strait last weekend, fishing was typical with a relentless supply of whiting and also dabs, dogs, huss and mini specie during our 5hrs afloat. With a great forecast today we headed out of the Strait for a 7hr trip drifting for thornback rays. Triple shots of whiting and joey mackerel saw us off the mark, gathering a few extra baits before the rays moved in and then it was non stop rays. A few laughs as normal and plenty of sport for those aboard. More photos in Gallery 272

Been fishing

We’ve enjoyed some good trips lately. This winter, the Menai Strait has fished extremely well. As I always say, it won’t set the world alight, winter for us is a case of shorter trips, catch a few fish and have a laugh with fellow anglers.  Whiting tend to make up the bulk of the catch, with dogs, huss, dab and mini species the other catches as we fish through December into January. With the right tide and conditions we also target conger eels. After a morning filling the buckets with some good sized whiting, we headed off to a deep […]
