Might be going over to meet Neil (Gilly) for a trip out, but there are strongish westerlies forecast. Any suggestions for a launch on the East side out of the wind? I'd love to try drifting or paddling with lures and baited feathers, but if it has to be dogfish on mackerel strip then so be it......
A few of the lads I fish with from Anglesey launch near Beaumaris Castle. They drift and fish SP's and catch a few bass but If you can get live sandeel then you are winning Micro sabikis will get you plenty of white bait and pick you up the odd sandeel. Failing that anchor up or tether up to one of the millions of bouys out there and fish, there will be plenty of fish about to be caught:)
Holyhead marina is worth a shot when its rough, park up by the RNLI centre, I normally tether upto the big orange bouy passed all the boats, should be loads of small smoothies about this time of year, great fun on a spinning rod. Small sections of rag or peeler will see you right.
Brilliant advice, thank you :-) I had been looking at inside the breakwater on the navionics map, but wasn't sure where to launch or where I could fish If ever we get a calm windless spell and neap tides, I'd love to fish outside the breakwater along the edge where rock meets sand, that looks sooooo fishy :-)
Thank you again Shaun :-) I'm not able to go in the end, due to a pulled back muscle Being self employed though, I can set off to Anglesey just as soon as it clears and the weather smiles on me I've been swotting all the lure techniques including SPs and can't wait to give them a try. I had a pollack at Swanage on ragworm tipped sabikis with just a two oz lead and it felt really good bringing it up compared to my usual six oz bottom bait rig
Is it just me, or is this the windiest year ever? :-)
