Re: peeler prices RIP off or what ???????

They have charged you at least double. The price is determined by supply and demand. The only advice I can give you is to buy bait on the coast if possible. At least Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a mask!

Sorry I could not make it. Went out on Saturday night for a few beers and turned into a full-on session well into late Sunday morning. Glad to see that you had a good day. Them Spider crabs are scary looking things, the spiny shell is to deter predators such as Bass from torpedoing them. Let us know...

Re: HOLYHEAD breakwater

I live in Holyhead and often fish the Breakwater. The Breakwater provides good fishing throughout the year although Codling are few and far between. The ground depends on if you fish seaward or into the Harbour "the back or inside wall" as the locals call it. The ground is mud on the inside and the ...

Re: B&Bs anyone?

Holyhead has plenty of B & B's. Phone 'Llys Meirion' B & B on 01407764950 I am sure they will accommodate you. If you want fresh bait go to Winnies Worms on William Street good Ragworm. Fishing around Holyhead is second to none. By the way Trearddur Bay is one mile from Holyhead. Just stay on the A5...

I heard a story about a 21 pounder caught at Conwy 30 years ago. The fish was weighed in at the local police station and later eaten. I was told that this had a mention in the Anglers Times but due to the lack of evidence failed to make it to the record books. Unfortunately record fish have to be sc...

I would not recommend hand-lining a decent fish up a pier with braid line as it cuts through skin like a knife through butter especially if your hands are wet. Best of buying or making a drop net for landing fish from piers a flying gaff also works but will damage the fish.

New British Record Bass (November, 2007)

I have just come across a news article that Isle of Wight Angler Steve Cave caught an 19lb 11oz 12dr Bass using whole squid bait, off Sandown Pier in November, 2007. Can anyone confirm if it has been entered as a new British shore record? Check it out for yourselves at the following web-site - http:...

Menai Strait Bass

Reports are that Bass have been caught throughout the winter in the Menai Straits. Live Herring is the killer bait and there is no shortage. Penmon sound and Perch rock for quantity and the Swellies for the big mamas. Why go to the bother of migrating when your surrounded by food. Imagine how plump ...

try passing the hook through the worms head and out of it's body so they bunch up with tails wriggling and head hook a couple for good measure then dip the hooked worms into water before lobbing it out. i use this technique with light gear and weights and normally fish within 50 yards for flatties. ...

Re: ANGLESEA MACKREL YET

Macky rock Porthdafarch Holyhead should start producing. Horse Mackerel show up first followed by the larger shoals in early May. Recommend going to Winnies Worms for tackle, bait and advice. Winnies Worms is on William Street just off Holyhead high street. Good luck mate!

Re: anglesea rays

the place behind the racetrack is known as "ty croes" and is excellent for ray and flatfish in springtime. best fishing over low water and into the flood tide. there are plenty of pollack and wrasse close in. crab is best bait for ray's though fish baits will catch. 60 yards should put you amongst t...
