Here’s a quick report of my day at the 3rd leg of this year’s summer league, Holy Island rover 5.30pm till 10.30pm on Saturday 7th June, fishing over low water.

Having set off early, I first called at Geoff’s to pick my bait up and then trundled up to the Island at a steady 60mph, now whether this made much difference I don’t know? It certainly took me longer than normal! But the diesel gauge still dropped like a stone (20 to the gallon if I’m lucky, I suppose it’s my own fault driving a big lump of metal!!!)
Anyway, I arrived with plenty of time to spare so having seen nobody waiting at the designated meeting place I had a bit of a wander over the headland by the last beach, after a quick look around I decided this would be as good a place to fish as any, with it being a bright sunny day with little or no breeze the fishing was going to be hard. I wondered back over the headland and after a quick drive I arrived back at the car park by the first beach were we were to book in, and since I had gone quite a few people had turned up and were having a chat on the front by the ice cream vans………

Here’s mike blending in with the holiday makers….



As it was getting near to the drive off, the one’s who weren’t too tight to pay the £2 parking fee made our way back to the cars.

Just had enough time to take a picture of Roger who had taken a shine to this tractor…….




We arrived at the last beach and just managed to find enough space for the three of us to park. After about ten minutes walk we arrived at our chosen mark. Here’s a picture of the view heading down to where I was going to fish……


Here’s the rod’s set up and ready to go……


Due to still sweating buckets after walking from the car and climbing down to the waters edge, this inlet behind me looked very inviting!!!


Any way the match started…. And it wasn’t long before mike had a Ballan wrasse and a dogfish in his bucket, which was a bit annoying as I hadn’t even had a bite! Another 10 minutes passed and just as I was about to pack up and move I had smash and grab on my crab bait fished close in….. This was the result


After this good wrasse I decided to stick it out, the fishing wasn’t brilliant but I did manage to get three dogs and then another smaller wrasse…..


Here’s a picture of Roger and Mike fishing further to my left, with my shadow for good measure!!!



The fishing wasn’t brilliant, and with the light fading we decided to pack up early (10pm) as it was getting a bit slippy under foot and wasn’t worth a fall to finish half an hour later and climb up the rocks in the dark. I’m glad it didn’t rain as the climb out behind me wasn’t a big one but it was still quite slippy and only one trip from a cold bath!


Arrived back at the weigh-in to find I had done enough for third place! So happy days! cheers cheers cheers
An enjoyable day out on sunny Anglesey!

Nice photies Sam.

I was too busy trying to catch a Ballan to get the camera out.

We took a chance on a new mark, that was supposed to give Conger and Huss, but although the water was very deep if you cast out there were none playing! The water at the edge of the rocks was shallow and sandy, as we found when the bow wave from the seacat came in and stirred everything up for five minutes, so we both failed to get an in size Ballan. Terry had a few small ones, but i didnt even get an undersized one. I did pick up a bonus Pollack while wrassing, then dropped into daddys swim to pick up a Corky and a Shore Rockling, both of which he already had.

All in all, very disappointing.

We will go to our usual mark next year!

Bring on the boat match next sun I say! This shore fishing is to much hard work Rolling Eyes Me and the bro fished on the Ranges, i ended up with 3 dogs 1 ballan and 2 p.cod for 5th. It was a bit of struggle to find the balans insize,or anything decent even with fresh macky caught from macky-rock on the way down!! Here's a few piccys from the day.No fishy pics though beacause they were tiddlers Razz

Scorchio on the rocks sunny
