PostSubject: Holiday Fishing Fun   Thu Apr 07, 2016 8:49 am

Took my first few days holiday of the year to spend some time with the family (oh and fish !!).

After 2 wet days camping at Shell Island it was time to fish !

First off a really damp session at Otterspool after a nice plump spring codling, they didn't show up but I got a nice plump whiting instead, weighing in at 1lb 1oz !!



I ended up with 2 small dabs and about 4/5 more whiting !

Next night I couldn't decide where to fish, so just opted to fish Llandudno Pier, even though it hadn't been fishing well.
I had the whole pier to myself and the doggies kept me busy all night long, I ended up with 9 and also 3 small codling.
Even getting the obligatory 2 doggies on a pennel pulley !



The biggest doggie coming in at 2lb 1oz



I was hoping for a bull huss, so I popped out a whole squid in the hope. Something nearly wrenched my rod off the rails and then took me straight into a snag only for my rig (&leader) never to see daylight again...... No idea what it was but there are quite a few conger around the pier ! Next time Mad

The owner hasn't made his mind up yet on night fishing, so until he does it is night tickets only, bought from pier point tackle before 5pm, no memberships available until a decision is made ! £6 a day until 6pm, £8 fishing until 2am !!

I'm guessing it was a conger that took me straight into a hidyhole ! I just got to the rod before it went off the pier and could not wrestle it out ! Line went at the leader knot Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

I told you. It is only a matter of time before it is caught or someone gets pulled in trying.
