Been a while …

With poor weather the end of Sept, a week away and relocating to the Menai Strait it’s been a while since we last set sail. A good forecast saw us set sail early this morning from Port Dinorwic, offshore to the wrecks. The morning was interesting. Plenty of fish showing but only being caught by the two Daves! Everyone else either lost fish partway up or snagged the wreck! No names of course … Slack water came and thankfully the odd fish still came aboard, a few wrecks and a run of tide later everyone started to remember how to catch […]

Weather Window

After over a week stuck ashore it was great to hear the sea beneath us last Saturday. Thankfully the fish played ball. We had fish every drift and on every wreck, fish boxes full with Peter taming the best at just over 14lb. Really enjoyable day with a great crew of misfits. More photos in Gallery 270

More fillets

The excellent sport continues offshore, with the wrecks alive with fish. Pollack are the mainstay of our wreck fishing with specimens to 13lb in recent trips. The odd cod also makes an appearance, with coalfish and ling on occasions too. More photos in Gallery 270

Sick

We’ve been enjoying some great weather of late and our days are fish filled together with a few laughs freezers are being stocked up. This today we had the average size below par with 5-6lb double shots coming aboard regularly, but eventually we found some bigger fish later on in the day.

Weather!

Fun couple days off shore recently. last Tuesday was not for the nervy! A strong Northerly F4-5 that failed to drop off as forecasted left us with an interesting day afloat. Top that with the first few wrecks not producing it was getting difficult! Fortunately the fish switched on with the next couple wrecks and we managed to fill the cool boxes with fish. The following day was a better forecast, a change of plan to suit the weather delivered fish on every wreck bar one. Not the double figure stamp we’re used to, but a good 6-8lb average keeping the […]

Young Gun

More great days afloat recently, quantity down on previous trips but still plenty in the boxes & fillets to head home with. Young Michael Barr showing the adults how to catch using the new PENN Wrath 20/30 rod together with a PENN 25 LD 2 speed. Pollack and codling falling to his lures most drifts ending with a stint of filleting too on the way in. The PENN Wrath Boat rods are available in two weight classes: 20-30lb and 30-50lb. The rods are equipped with K-frame stainless steel guides with titanium oxide inserts for extra durability. More photos in Gallery […]

Fishing Frenzy

Another superb day offshore. Cool boxes over flowing with fish at the end, despite some filleting midway through.   Codling failed us today and we had a slow period on slack water, but besides that it fished brilliantly, plenty of single and double shots of pollack with many well into double figures.
