Additional Description:

With being situated on the west coast of Anglesey, North Wales we are ideally located some of the best fishing north Wales has to offer with Caernarfon bay and Saint Georges channel only a short distance away but we also can have some great sport closer to home.

Fishing venues .....

Caernarfon Bay - With a vast amount of sand banks and reefs Caernarfon bay is a great all round days fishing with a large amount of Skate and Tope on the banks along with good a sport of Bream and Pollack on the reefs.

Wrecking - Saint Georges channel was once the main shipping area for the western isle thus providing a huge amount of ship wrecks to fish, 15-25 miles on a general day and 25-40 miles on the Longer trips and deaper waters.
A summer run of Cod can show some good catches of fish between 3-15lbs and Pollack through most month's to similar sizes, you will get the odd ling thrown in for that persevering angler.

Holyhead Bay - A good fishing venue for the casual anglers and bad weather days, a great amount of species can be boated throughout the day during anchor or drifting. A great Smooth-Hound season running on from mid may providing some of the largest hounds in Wales and regular 20lb+ fish not being to shy.
Drifting yields some fantastic shallow water sport for Wrasse and Pollack.

Liverpool -

Winter Cod fishing, From mid-October through to late February we will be relocating to Liverpool Marina to run uptiding/down tiding trips on the famous River Mersey.
Every winter the Mersey has a fantastic run of Cod, Skate, Large whiting and Dabs, The Cod very in size averaging 2-5lb with plenty heading into the double figure mark.

Main species we fish for are


An average year sees around 45-50 species coming to the net including many mini species on light tackle if the wind is too bad to venture off.

During the day the kettle is on as much as possible and of course like most skippers you may need to give me a little hint at times if the fishing is keeping me busy, fresh sausage sandwiches are made whilst you fish and a lunch normally being a pan of Chilli.

There are plenty of quality Ugly Stick rods and Okuma lever drag reels landed with 30lb braid available to use free of charge, Tackle is available to buy on board at cheaper rates than the tackle shops.
Bait can be arranged to be either picked up or ready and waiting for you to arrive at the boat.

Free parking is located along side the local sailing club being only a short walk from the marina where the boat is waiting, NO LADDERS NO STEPS

All-in trips available on request ( bait, tackle, rods supplied)

If you wish to hire the boat for Diving, Filming, Survey or Sightseeing please feel free to give me a call and I am sure we could be of service to you.

    I put an outstanding review on the Cbuk system about this boat and the Skipper over a year ago. Sadly due to a major operation I have not been able to get back on board until yesterday.
    A review in my opinion is a marker on the quality of experience and satisfaction a customer receives when he or she purchases something either an item or a service. When go back after a year like I have and find things have even got better than last time then this is a real quality standard marker to shout about. It says a lot about the skipper himself and his willingness and drive to constantly improve on the service he offers and the quality of craft you access to go fishing. Thank you very much Aaron and Bad Boyz IV for a truly memorable day see you again in 3 weeks .Will Holland St. Helens , Merseyside.

    Nice veriaty of fish today, ran out to the wrecks this morning, albeit challenging conditions with 18knts of northerly wind but the lads persevered and boated Pollack to 13lb 2oz.

    Short anchor session closer to home in the afternoon, Spurdogs once again were hectic!
    Few lads stuck at it with feather, boating plenty of good sized Grey Gurnards and Mackerel.

    Good session in challenging conditions

    Update - June

    This past week we have turned our attention to many of the offshore wrecks of the Irish sea, some days covering 80-100miles in search of the good eating, hard fighting Pollack.

    Some wrecks we have found plenty of fish, some wrecks Far fewer fish making the days patchy, hectic hours here and there.

    Average stamp of fish has been 4-7lb with the 8lb-12lb fish making an appearance most days.

    June and July is mostly booked up now, we have limited availability for August and September, also 2019 dairy is open and filling fast!

    Don't forget to get your Winter Mersey Cod dates sorted asap ��

    Let's hope the summer continues to bring settled weather ��������

    Good day afloat despite the 20knts NE forecast.....

    We headed for North Deeps this morning, albeit bouncy but we found maybe 20 lively Spurdogs to 15lb, Tope 25lb and Huss to 10lb.
    Once the tide turned he headed for shelterd waters around the stacks to hopefully pull a few fish out on the drift. We did find a good amount of Pollack to 2lb and Codling to 5lb with a few Ballan Wrasse, Cuckoo Wrasse and Herring thrown in.

    All in all a good day, 10 Species to the boat, some nice fish and a great laugh with the small boat guys.

    Brings a good weekend of settled ISH weather to an end, 18 species tallied and a few great pictures. As usual the forecast had gone to pot for the next few days.
