PostSubject: Sunny Rays @ Trearddur Bay   17th April 2010, 9:28 pm

After their success last week on the Rays, I joined Dan and Adam for a trip out of Trearddur Bay aboard their boat O2B@C.

The weather was fine and clear, apart from the haze possibly caused by volcanic dust from Iceland but a sea breeze took the heat out of the sun and meant we kept our jackets on for most of the day.

After 5 hours kip I managed to meet up with the lads before our agreed time so we could get an early dart to the Island.

We were in the water for 8.30 and headed straight over to Ty Croes to target the Rays.

Things were quiet for the first hour, but we all managed to get a couple of Dogs each for the hunt.

Things suddenly went a bit mental, with four Rays coming up in the next half hour.

Dan had two,

Adam had one,

And I got one which put up a great scrap on my little rockhopper rod.

They werenít as big as their fish last week, with the biggest being about 4lb, but they were our target species so we were all happy.

The Rays went off and we carried on catching Dogs until another brief flurry of Ray activity took the scores to 5 for Dan, 3 for me and 2 for Ad.

This time, the Dogs also went off so we decided upon a move to a spot the lads know for Huss.

We anchored up and got fishing at our second mark but things were quiet here too. A couple of Dogs all round came over the side but Dan managed a small Huss, but they all count for the hunt.

The next move was to just off Lees camp between Ravens and Lilyponds.

We were hoping for Wrasse here, although we were unsure if it was still a bit early for them.

There were very few there. Action was hardly hectic but there was the odd fish to keep interest up.

Dan ticked a few off the list for the hunt, in the shape of a Ballan,

and a Corkwing,

and had a bonus Tompot on his small hooks.

Adam had a few Ballans and I got a Pollack for the hunt.

I was a bit peed off I couldnít get a wrasse but theres plenty of time left for those.

Our last move took us off Ravens where it looked like combat fishing. There were even some idiots tombstoning off the headland!

Adam carried on with his small hooks here and added a few species he hadnít had previously in the form of a Codling,

A Whiting,

A Poor Cod,

and a bonus Coalie.

Dan added a Pouting to his list,

But I could only catch Dogs again. I hadnít had one for months before today and im sick of the sight of them now.

All to soon it was time to pack up and head for home. A very enjoyable day, if not a little disappointing from a personal species hunt perspective but I cant wait for next time now, when the summer species will hopefully have moved in, in greater numbers.

Thanks Dan and Ads.
