Perch Rock Codling

With Santa Claus having treated Roy to a new rod, reel and braid, he was keen to christen them.  And so he headed down to Perch Rock armed with a couple of wraps of frozen premium quality Hoylake suey to fish the first 2hrs of the flood. So much for the dreaded ‘new rod syndrome’, it was a fish a chuck! Read the full report here…

Town Hall Steps 26/11/15

THS261115

Adam and his Dad fished the Town Hall Steps for their first proper crack at the Codling this winter. Round 4 of the WSF/BLAS match the previous weekend was a bit hit and miss but a few Codling did hit the beach, and so that, coupled with the bigger tide, was enough to give a bit of confidence that there would be a few about. Check out how they got on here…

A day on the Mersey

Mariners

Graham and Richie had planned a conger session on the island but when the weather took a turn for the worse they decided to hit the Mersey instead chasing codling and rays.  The codling failed to show up but they managed to find some decent rays. Read the full report here.

This years WSF/BLAS Winter League got underway at Perch Rock with 15 anglers turning out to get their campaigns underway. There were plenty of fish from the off with dogfish and whiting dominating the catches.

Perch Rock

Chillivokda couldn’t think of a better way to start a week off work than to throw a few lines out and chill out with a bit of fishing. So he headed down to Perch Rock for the late afternoon low tides on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was frantic with plenty of dabs and whiting showing, but on Sunday it was a case of quality over quantity. Read the full report here

All Fished Out

All Fished Out

After a 20 year gap Andy decided to take up fishing again. Armed with an arsenal of new gear and quality bait in the form of lug and peeler, he headed off to Llandudno Pier. Lug baits picked up a few doggies but after changing to peeler he was soon into the hounds. Read the full report here.

A week on the Llŷn

Porthmadog

Andy had wanted to try out some marks on the Lleyn and so he booked a week away in Porthmadog.  A session hunting spotted rays in Criccieth resulted in just dogfish and rockling, but his fortunes changed when he fished Porthmadog estuary. Find out how he got on here.

Rock Channel

 

Adam had his first session of the year on the Rock Channel targeting hounds. As he waited to cross the channel Joe and Brian also turned up and before long they were making their way out along the bank. The first couple of casts produced just a couple of small whiting, however the next bite definitely wasn’t a whiting. Was it a smoothie? Read the full report to find out.
