  1. Had plans to go up Scotland for a few days fishing this weekend but my boiler packing up meant I had to wait in till the plumber could come on Saturday which left me not much time to do what I wanted so we decided that because Anglesey was only about 2-1/2 hours drive we would go there for a few hours . The day started badly when we pulled up at Beaumaris and my mate had left his lure rod behind and didn’t get much better . We had bait rods aswell so cracked on but the weed was a nightmare, literally pulling the rods off the tripod every couple of minutes so we went on the breakwater at Holyhe
  2. Thanks , I’ll send you my number. I thought it might be the case with tope but I can only try , all the videos of tope I’ve seen are from boats up there. I wouldn’t be upset catching huss or conger though .
  3. Anyone from near the isle of Whithorn on here or done any fishing there and knows what I can expect there , is it shallow or deeper water and is it snaggy . I’m thinking of having a drive up next week to have a go for bass and pollock with lures but I’m also thinking of taking some bait gear and having a go for tope , I want to try and get a decent one from the shore this year and it’s one of the places I’ve been told to try .
  4. My old dog had short black coat and I used to get asked if he was a greyhound from time to time and when I told them he was a lurcher the usual reply was that it didn’t look like a lurcher because they have long coats . One even told me he wasn’t because his mate bred pedigree lurchers and they don’t look like that

    Pet hates.

    Non drivers telling you it’s ok to park in places that are liable to see you get a ticket or clamped . People who wear the chav uniform of black Nikes and tracky bottoms , bubble jackets zipped up with the hoods up when it’s cracking the flags and top the look of with an handbag and talk with that stupid accent
  6. Made a last minute decision last night to go down wales with the lures so set off at 1 on the 340mile round trip and got there at 4.30 . 2 casts in I had this bass on a IMA hound and a pollock a few casts later . Had another bass and 4 pollock on a IMA sasuke and a couple more pollock on savage sandeel before it got too hot and I decided to go home at 11 .
  7. It’s been horrible , been trickling bait out since we go here and having the odd cast and mess about with the bfs gear . It’s picking up now though
  8. First one of the season . Had a big chub earlier on aswell
  9. I’ve been down again for a couple of hours and had 3 chub to just under 6 and lost one barbel to an hook pull at the net . Going to try again Tuesday evening
  10. No barbel for me or my mate but I did have 7 chub , nothing big - 4.9 was the biggest . I’ll be out again one night next week if I can
  11. I’ve bought a savage gravity stick box set and savage sandeel’s plus some metals like the savage seeker and hard baits from mechanic lures , duo , xorus , tacklehouse , longin , ima , savage and heddon .Lure fishing for bass is a good shop to look for gear and places like mr fish and chesil bait n tackle
  12. I recently got an hto nebula 9ft 12-42g to have a go for bass . Was going to get the 7-35g one but decided to go with a bit more power .
  13. Don’t normally bother at the start of the season but came down with a mate and had this chub after about half an hour
