PostSubject: Isle of Man Mannin Angling Festival    Wed Jul 27, 2011 1:17 pm

Isle of Man Mannin Angling Festival


The best start to this is the end from all of us who made the trip we would like to say a massive thanks to the whole team from Mannin Angling club for their support with your boat fishing festival, just to name a few Tony, Cam, Jamie, john and Beryl a massive thanks from us for making us feel so welcome.

We arrived at Heysham to be met by a big boat
After a trip thru customs and a quick check of the boats we were allocated a slot to board

and on we went the sea looked spot on as we set out


As we came out of Morecombe bay and past the forest of wind mills
We just chugged along at 17 knots it was a long journey (well worth it in the end)
We arrived after 3 ½ hours on the Isle of Man
to be met by Tony and Cam with already meeting Jamie on the boat and promising us some good marks all looked good.

Tony and Cam had arranged a great camping spot with toilets and showers set up for us it just got better
A quick pitch of the tents and we then met John and Beryl who had arranged a parking spot for the boats next to the harbour masters office
Rite next to the ramp as well which was spot on with in minutes the local guys from the queeny factory popped over and offered us ice if required


We had agreed to have a spot checking day on Saturday just to feel our way round we were met by cam on the slip at 830 with some local marks from Jamie we just mentioned we would like to try for some Pollock, Ling, Cod and wrasse
So we were given 4 marks to start of first was about 2 miles from the slip for live bait it’s the local sand bank just 120 foot of water on top of it and true to their word we had a good 40 eels within 30 mins
So headed off to the first mark for Pollock, Cod & Cuckoo wrasse it had on the paper and first drop produced just that

It was nonstop for over 2 hours at this mark with tipped feathers with sand eel and good old Black Lug from Prestatyn
The Cuckoo Wrasse were small but great fun and plenty of them
coddling averaged around 1 pound to 1 ½ with the odd 3 pound thrown in just lots nd lots of them.
The Wrasse were playing as well and put up a great fight


We fished in around 140 foot of water with sand eel or baited feathers

So we moved to the second mark to try for what was promised a good mark for ling John was in before the engine was turned off and had a fish straight away
and true to Jamie’s and Cams word it was a ling in all within 45 mins we landed over 20 ling and few Pollock










Alan and his crew were very busy as well





We moved in on the last mark for some common wrasse and again we were hit hard each time with john landing a good 4 pound
Once again it was non stop
We landed back at the slip

Just after 5pm and it was one hell of a first day and it got better sadly I ran out of battery power on the camera
But it has to be fair to say it was some fantastic fishing with great company and lots of crack was had by all
Great to use that box or artificial lures to fish with and catch watch Pollock chase the artificial from 20 foot of water to the surface
I would say over the 3 days of fishing we landed over 200 fish between us with Mr Clark getting 14 dogs in 1 hour to wipe the smile of jackos face it was great fun
We will be back and I can only recommend any one to pop over next year it will be the best week of fishing you would have had in a long time good sheltered fishing which is great when you plan a trip like this so you can get out we were out in 20 MPH wind plus and just headed for shelter behind the rock face
Again thanks to all an manning angling club

if anyone want to give a go next year they have an option on a dorm accommodation (cheap) or you can camp)-:

I can promise you will have one hell of a fishing trip has to be the best fishing I have seen, The species comp on the Saturday was won with 250+ points just shows you what is out in the water and Jamie actual gave us all the marks if you wanted to run around but we were happy spinning for Pollock and co.
If you just want large Pollock and small codling you are going to be spoilt for choice the wrasse fishing and ling is something you have to just see it is constant with light spinning tackle you are in for one hell of a day
The ferry is around £450 for the car, Boat and 3 persons we used a full tank over the 4 days of fishing as you are in 140 feet of water within 100yds of the slip and land if you want you can just stay close in
Bait is free just catch it or use spinners of shads
To be fair it’s not expensive once you are on the island except fuel which is around 10p ltr more expensive
Intend on going from the Sunday next year and stay till the Saturday for the party and have been promised some welsh cakes
Was a bit surprised with one of the catches on the Sunday as a boat returned with a sheep on the front not looking to happy and they talk about the Welsh

You have one of my favourite fishing spots in the world Very Happy on one of your photographs ...

The end of that sea wall. The queenie factory throw their waste shells in at high tide. Many fish to be found there waiting. Happy days!
