Had a couple of hours down on the Llyn peninsula last night, unplanned as was camping but when you gotta go you go

Anyhow long story short as everything I wrote disappeared.
Always wondered if shop bought peeled, cooked prawns work as bait. I got cheapest and they were more bits than normal looking, £2 from Morrison's. Smothered them in bait elastic and caught first ever smooth hounds, doggies and a random spider crab also obliged.
They literally had no smell, all from a quite shallow beach too. Well chuffed, defo be part of my regular bait arsenal from now on.

I have caught lots of small fish on cooked prawns when at Isle of Man. Wrasse particularly like them. Work well float fished in clear water.

Raw king prawn from the freezer section works as well. I caught quite a few bream on baited feathers on a trip last summer. Just bought some today from Lidl for a trip later in the month. The missus thought they were for her tea.

Judge of month January 2018 - doubt they will ask me again.

My best fish caught near Rhyl was in 2012 - 29lb tope - it was this big  cheers  Very Happy

Which side of the Lynn were you fishing?We camped about 15mls from Caenarfon,there was a free boatlaunch slip on the site.We took 2 boats and stayed a fortnight.Loads of fish and spider crabs.
You can see the bottom at 30ft deep,the boulders were all rounded off,with patches of white sand inbetween.
We camped near the stream,and dammed a bit off for a beer cooler.
I'd go again,no probs.

Used the raw king prawn quite often, and the bits of squid in mixed bags but didn't think the cooked prawn would be up to much, good to know!

We camped at Pistyll, just above the old dock on Penisarlon campsite.
What was the campsite called? I might check it out, must be close to where I was as it's about 18mile from Caernarfon.

It's exactly 10.9 miles from Caernarfon.
It's called GYRNGOCH CAMPSITE.
It's hard to spot
There's massive mountain above it,the stream runs down from it and ends up in the sea.
You've got a choice of fields,and you can camp right next to the sea.Campfires are allowed on the beach.
The main toilet facilities are the best I have seen on any campsite.(the others are not as good)
We camped in a sheltered spot just over the stream on the right just past the main toilets etc.
The sunsets are fantastic,there's a safe beach for the kids,and a standpipe at the beach near the slipway.(to wash the outboards through)
From the beach it's about 3 miles to Trevor,which is well in sight.
I'd go again,no probs.
Because it's a private site,the slipway is free to the campers.
Not a lot of entertainment,but a lovely place.
