Many Years Away

Post by TimA » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:55 am

Hi All

My first time posting here but I have used the forum for a few months, great stuff, just wish it was a bit busier!

Anyway, I haven't been rock fishing since my dad passed away 15 years ago but as my son is 10 yo I think it is time to start it back up, we go to Benllech for a week at the beginning of September, what am I likely to be catching?

Reason I ask is I have to buy some gear and could use the advice.

Mackerel still around at this time of year?

Kind Regards

Not many folk will have a clue where Benllech is so won't bother to respond. I only found out myself by using Google Earth. Can I suggest that you put out another post asking about N Wales/Anglesey fishing, that might attract some response.

Thanks, I never thought of that, well it's on the Isle of Anglesey.

Only a couple of weeks until we go, can't wait, hope the weather is pleasant!

Cheers

Anglesey? Your spoilt for choice, Red Warf Bay, Bull Bay, Treadour Bay, Holyhead Breakwater runs out to sea for a mile and three quarters and you can drive right along it and fish where you park, Amlech.

Cheers for that Eccles mate, at Hollyhead first and second bend for mackerel, apart from that a set of feathers and a good supply of lug and fish bait will catch as all those places are likely to turn up a variety of fish, Wrasse, Doggies, Bass, Whiting, Conger from the outer wall at Holyhead but it has a rockey outcrop, Even good large edible crab a plentiful at Holyhead.
Cheers

All apart from the mackerel but you may catch the odd stragglers if the warm weather persists.
