A Fladen two foot kayaking rod and Shakespear fixed spool together with float and lure attached all on the rocks together with two spools of line. It is likely that whoever it was either went home and left/forgot about the gear or had a scout around the ledges and slipped. The tide was a zero drop a...

The Doggies and pin-whiting had a feast tonight in Trearddur Bay and I caught my first ever Dragonet. Unfortunately, the fishing was poor and in hindsight I should have fished the beach on the big Spring Tide and not the rock ledges. On a more serious note, when we arrived on the rock mark we found ...

Going fishing

Got my Kind Rag, Edible Peelers and fat juicy Lugworm and am hoping to catch a fish or two later.

The Tides are huge and not a breath of wind outside - Perfect.

Catch you later.

RIP

Two young local fishermen lost their lives fishing Cable Bay, Ty Croes last week. One got into difficulties in the water and the other jumped in to save him before being swept out to sea. Ty Croes rock ledges are renowned for strong swells surging up the rocks even on calm days, so be careful and do...

Spider Crabs are the likely culprit for severed hook lengths.

Killer Whale feeding off Criceth Beach, Gwynedd

Check out the Daily Post Website. Have you seen the size of the fish it has launched in the air. According to the article the Whale was a Tennis-Court distance away from the beach when the photo was taken. The photo's proof that you don't have to cast far to catch big fish. Tight lines.

Roonz, Bass should be showing on Valley Cob. Keep it simple, light gear and close in with a peeler crab. The Bass feed around the rocks when the tide floods and are within touching distance. I nearly stood on one of the biggest Bass i've ever seen in 2 foot of water on a scorching Summer's day. Good...

Plenty of Pollack, Wrasse, Pout and Conger off the back wall but it's a graveyard for tackle. My choice of mark on the Breakwater for a night fishing session would be on the End to left of the Lighthouse. If you take two rods drop one in close for Conger and Huss. The only problem with fishing the e...

Good report and you get 10 out of 10 for trying. It a shame you never caught but that's why it's called Fishing and not Catching.

October is a good time for fishing on Anglesey. The beaches should produce Coalie, Whiting and Bass. The rock ledges will produce Dogs, Huss, Whiting, Conger and occasional Codling. Worms baits are effective and blast frozen eels are a killer for the Whiting. With regard to fishing marks well it all...

Winnies Tackle Telephone (01407)760303 he will dig Rag and Lug to order. Peeler crab is like rocking horse sh@t and depends on season and location. If you can get your hands on some crab then it will be well worth the money. Fish the end of Holyhead Breakwater two hours each side of low water. The t...

I've been told that Huss and Smoothhounds have been coming of the end of Holyhead Breakwater. Peeler crab is the best bait up here followed by Rag Lug and Sandeel. Hope that helps.
