Otterspool – Nov 26th

Given the recent wintery showers flushing cold water down the river, Gaz and Godders weren’t overly confident of finding many fish during their session at Otterspool. However, it turned out to be a pretty decent session with 3 codling taken to 4lb 9oz. Read the full report here.

Rock Channel – Take Two

Ian had his first two session of the year on the Rock Channel.  His first session was slow with just a solitary thornie coming in. However his second session proved to be far more successful. Find out how he got on here…


First session of the year for Gaz and Godders and 3 species were on the target list. The plan was to head over to the north of Anglesey to target conger and huss, with a bit of a detour on the way to target a plump flounder at the blue bridge at Queensferry. Would they managed their hattrick. Click here to find out…

The Right Decision?

The right decision

Mark was debating whether to fish Kinmel Bay on Sunday night or whether to stay local and fish Formby. He decided on the latter, and after getting his gear together and the blow lug he’d dug the day before, Mark was on the beach and first bait in the water for 6.10am. There was a nice n/w breeze between 10 and 12mph which was giving a good steady surf nothing too big. Mark had had his best bass from Formby in near identical conditions 2 years ago and so he knew the beach could produce. But would it produce today? Find out here…

Smutty Weekend

After a successful session last weekend on the hounds Bruce and his son Dylan wanted to get in on some more smoothy action.  They had two venues in mind, one in North Wales and the other was to be the Rock Channel.  There was a lot to live up to after the fantastic session they’d had. Would they manage a repeat performance…oh yes, that and much, much more in fact!  Read the full report here….

Richie had been building his stocks of peeler ready for the start of the smoothhound run.  With a WSW breeze and overcast skies conditions looked perfect and so he and IanK made the long walk along the Rock Channel sandbank for the first time this year.  Crab baits were launched seawards and it was game on for the new season! Bang! It only took 30 seconds for Richie and he was into one.  Read the full report here.
