    It’s been a while since our last detailed report, and much has happened, great fishing and hard fishing, thanks to the weather. We are still suffering from countless cancellations from the foul conditions that have been hanging around the UK for a long time now. But we all know that, so lets not dwindle on the bad. When weather has allowed, we have been fortunate to sail and fortunate to locate some good fishing for the majority of our trips.

    This report starts at the end of April, where yet again we snuck off to the edge of Holyhead in search of spurdogs, huss and early tope. The spurs certainly played ball with countless double figure specimens falling to the present baits. Nigel Perry, visiting from Scotland, was on fire during his trip on 27th April, numerous double figure landing, including one hook up that contained two double figure spurdogs one of which, at 19lb 12oz was a mere 1 oz under the current welsh record, caught and released aboard My Way a few years back.

    High winds cancelled the start of May for us, but when settled it was back out after the spurdogs. They did’t disappoint, with countless double figure spurs joining us aboard My Way. One day in particular, will remain with me for a long while… it rained. Oh, did it rain, all 6 of us were totally soaked. But the fishing was worth it, with countless spurs and a few huss making an appearance.

    As May rolled on pollack slowly started to make an appearance on various rock marks and along the length of Holyheads famous breakwater. Normally the start to arrive after the 2nd week of April, signifying a change in seasons and species, but as with most things in 2015, the were late.

    Plenty of fish ranging between 1 and 2lb and a good few reaching 4lb, lovely conditioned early season fish and great sport on light tackle in 35foot of water.

    Ballan, cuckoo and corkwing wrasse all making an appearance in May, with a good few being caught amongst the polka, collies and clouding whilst drifting.

    May tends to be the start of our annual smoothhound hunt, however the cold weather and slow crab moult has seen a very slow start to the hounding. We have managed a dozen or so in the past week with the best few two winners of our smoothhound challenge (separate report to follow) topping the scales at 19b and 23b. Great fish and plenty more to come through June.

    June availability is very limited with only a handful of spaces available, evening trips available for both boat and individual bookings, please phone for details.

    Compared to last Friday, the following day didn't quite go to plan. The forecasted weather for Saturday 09th was 6 to 8mph for the day, I rubbed my hands with glee and had visions similar to the day just gone, pollack and spurdog aplenty ... arrived at the marina and had 20mph NW blasting the seas outside the breakwater.
    With the new forecast showing a decrease in the wind just in time for a run out to the deeps, it was hoped not all would be lost. waiting for the weather and tide, we managed a few pollack, with doggies, whiting and small huss inshore.

    Sadly Holyhead Deep never provided the bounty it had the previous day. It was hard work with a sloppy sea testing our patience & ability to stand up. Still, the lads soldiered on and we managed to land a good few spurdog and huss.

    Paul, photographed here managed 4 to himself ...

    Great day last Friday, 08th May, flat & calm in the morning, plenty of pollack on the drift followed by a mixed bag during the inshore anchor. Risked the big tide on a mark in Holyhead Deep. It was flat calm here too, but it rained. Oh boy did it rain, torrential at times!

    We were soaked wet through all afternoon ... but for 90 mins the 5 adventurous anglers were rewarded with 28 spurdogs and with Shakespeare Fishing 12lb Agility rods or less rods in use, some epic battles from 200ft, including the odd double shot.

    Even had a go myself, but had to hand my rod over in the end with the inconsiderate quintet calling net far too often, lol

    Great fun

    Up until today (18th) the month of April has been a relatively successful period aboard My Way.

    The weather has allowed us to sail on 9 occasions and only cancelled 5, ok, so 64% is not the kindest of percentages, but for early season April in the bay, I’ll take it.

    The first weekend of the month saw us staying inshore on a 6 hour trip for a group of novices aboard My Way. Fortunately we were able to put them amongst the fish with a few different species scattered around various marks within Holyhead Bay. What’s interesting about the last couple weeks of March and early April, is that the fishing has been a tad slow inshore. Normally a good variety of species can be relied upon to be here in decent number by now, especially at anchor.

    On the drift we’d expect to see pollack and coalfish increasing in size and number as April goes by. But to be fair, were as we’re ploughing through an alarming number of dogfish and whiting most trips, other species have been slow in their appearance. Don’t misunderstand, it\s not been hellish bad inshore. Our days afloat have thrown up some wonderful catches, including rays, rockling, dabs, ling, spurdogs and more, but this lull I’d normally associate with early March has hit a tad later.

    Easter was a busy period for us, Easter Sunday was a 30ft tide, with the inshore throwing up a few smaller fish for the crew, we opted for a mark in deeper water for the slack period in search of spurdogs. We had already caught spurs in the Deeps during March and also had a few turn up on the mussel beds, so it was with some anticipation that big baits were lowered the 190ft down. Thankfully we reaped the rewards as a plentiful number of spurs graced the deck of My Way, as many anglers caught spurs for the first time.

    On the bank Holiday Monday and the following Monday we ran a few 4hour trips, classed as introduction trips, they are a taster for youngsters and adults alike to the joys of fishing while afloat. Fish, smiles, chocolate & fun, with calm seas and occasional sunshine, they are often a superb day for novices of all ages.

    Later that week it was back to full days. Starting again inshore and moving off to Holyhead Deep for the slackwater period. most days with fairly similar results, mixed bag of species from a variety of inshore marks, although still remaining a little slow on actual quantity of fish. This followed by a tremendous number of big double figure spurdogs in addition to huss reaching 14lb taking our baits in Holyhead Deep.

    Best spurdog so far in 2015 goes to Carl Burns from Colwyn Bay. Spurdogs have been somewhat of a bogey fish for Carl, having fished with us for over a decade, Carl has had some note-able catches that include amongst the standard big huss, spurdog, pollack etc squid & topknot. Carl's an angler that can normally be relied upon to pull a few species out when others struggle …. but always failed to connect with a spurdog, despite those around him landing spur after spur. Mid March we finally ended the spurdog drought for Carl as he landed some nice double figure spurs during a visit to Holyhead Deep.

    Then in April, during yet another successful outing for everyone aboard, Carl pulled out a monster among spurs … a beauty weighing in at 20b 3oz.

    A few cancelled trips towards the middle of the month saw us blow away those land locked blues yet again with another successful day afloat and Deep visit. Big huss and spurdogs helped many anglers to an enjoyable day and a few more ticks on their species cards for the 2015 season

    Awesome days fishing aboard Myway 19/6/2015 smooth hounds were the target of the day as part of Myways smooth hound challenge competition and as always we were not disappointed with Gethyn the skipper managing to put us on some fearnominal fishing with well over 30 smooth hounds landed on the day many of them into double figures and a new PB of 20lb4oz for myself Gethyn informed me that my fish was the third 20lb+ hound to be landed aboard Myway in the last two days truly exceptional and must rate as some of the best smooth hound fishing available in the UK! As always Gethyn made sure everyone had a good day by providing a constant supply of tea coffee and sausage sandwiches as well as helpful tips and information on tackle we were using bait presentation and rigs making sure the guys that had never tried this type of fishing before got the best out of there day afloat as I have said before I would highly recommend a trip abroad Myway I had an absolutely fantastic day and to top it off I was lucky enough to landed not only a new PB but the biggest hound of the day winning a brand new rod and reel kindly donated by Gethyn himself and I would like to thank him very much and I can't wait till the next time

    Skippers Reponse: Awesome Mark, thank you for the very kind words. Great fun and what a catch! Still time to smash another PB! Cheers Geth

    Nice boat, great skipper and good craic what more can you ask for. After doing a lot of cod bashing in the north east and owning a small boat myself I was dubious of going back to charters.I should have done it years ago. From the first contact with Gethyn he was helpful and you could tell he had enthusiasm and knowledge for angling. I explained my situation and that I wanted to learn the art of sea fishing for species instead of ripping for cod. Gethyn sorted my bait lent me some lighter gear and sorted my rigs for the type of fishing. He showed me how to present my bait and explained how to handle my fish and a bit about the fish themselves. With all the help and cups of tea I managed to boat my first doggie, Huss and smooth hound. I will be back for more. Thanks Gethyn.

    Skippers Reponse: Hi Chris, thank you for the review, was a good day and glad we managed to help out with our fishing styles over here on the west coast. Look forward to July and we can go for more, thanks Geth
