33 Degrees and I almost couldn't be bothered fishing and certainly wasn't pulling the waders on!

A sea breeze, starting to cool a little in the evening and some shade from the wall added up to Holyhead Breakwater a couple of hours after evening low, plan was to travel very light so drop nets and stuff stayed at home

Half inch bits of rag worm on 3 hook sections from a cut down sabiki rig dropped straight down the inside wall at the first set of steps had the bites going almost straight away,



The bites were pretty well as soon as the bait went down, connecting with the little critters was the tricky bit

Corkwings into double numbers all quite small and not worth a photo every time.

And an addition to my species count



Tompot? Goby? Shanny?
ID help please!

Same fish, out of focus unfortunately but showing the pectoral fins.


The Corkwing continued to oblige and we were running out of bait




Last night I thought  this was the same species of mini and just a different colour - but I'm not sure now! what do you reckon?





A guy and his daughter returning from further along said they'd found a few Mackerel and Tina fancied a go so I put a pink weighted red gill on the end of the Sabiki rig so it looked like a bigger fish chasing fry and she got casting.

Now I'm concentrating on the minis and I heard her say something about weed on her line as a mat of it passed though but didn't take too much notice to be honest, but meanwhile Tina was watching a flash of silver zig zagging behind her lure and from our vantage point up on the wall she had the great thrill of seeing the take as it smashed the lure!
I got round to taking notice as she was winching up a Bass of about a couple of pounds - I wasn't expecting that!
Sadly no photo; as it was mid air it made contact with the wall and made its escape.

Needless to say I immediately put on a similar lure and we kept trying until the light was going but that was to be the highlight of the session.

Thanks for the ID I'm glad I didn't slip up by not including the species card on the second one!


Shanny it is, ( which seems to be a type of Blenny with a few names just to confuse me even more! )
