Report:

Fished under britania bridge on the concret platforms near treborth, i caught 3 doggys and lost another 3 fish, saw some bass chasing fry just inches away from the shore, lots of kelp around in the menai straits which can be verry snagy, but i find that a decent cast will cover these snags and still produce fish, i find the pulley rig amazing for fishing over snaggy terrain along with a 4 oz wire grip sinker.

Bait: rag worm frozen machrel and squidd

Report:

Fished Menia on my boat Herons 1, with Mark Mike and young Josh, Saturday 27th Dec. Day started slow with just dog fish, I know we all hate these bait robbing rats, but sometimes they are better than nothing, as the tide started to slow down and the sun drop, the fish started to feed, loads of whiting mostly upto 1lb, one nice fat dab, but you know then days when your getting bite after bite and small fish after small fish your sure your going to catch a codling, or something decent but not this time. Total haul 21no dog fish 1no dab and 40no whiting. Not too bad for a detox day out.

Bait: frozen peeler, fresh black lug, mack

Report:

3 hours down from two hours after high. Calm, light NW wind, dry; thick fog towards end. From near foot Britannia Bridge. Me and mate blanked. Using rotten bottom rigs but ran out of old nuts & bolts as expendable weights (can never find em when you're looking for em!). So switched to float with tip light lashed on. Still sweet FA, though the rigs were sitting nicely. Tried different depths, but no joy. Wrapped and stumbled off through the pea-souper to the car. Third time here & nothing yet. Wouldn't mind the kelp if I could get the odd bite. Oh well, keep trying...

we cought about 100 makrel in a afternoon and a couple of other fish like whiteings gurnerds and polok.but the wind is very strong and the tide is big. we recomend that pepole take a boat to the menai straights the best place is caernarfon pier. its easy to cach polok and makrel when the tide is right by droping your line under the pier. also a man cought a lobster.

Fished mainland side, to the right of the road bridge, down by the old George Hotel (now Uni residences) -2 LW +2. Into the dusk until about 1:10am. Really rough ground, didnt get a lead back in once! After first loss on the 15lb loaded reel, knew what the score was gonna be and changed to a single rod with my SLOSH and rotten bottom. 2 dog fish only, quite a few bites missed, couldnt strike them. Next time in summer here, i'd go on the float or spinning.

Report:

You dont need to fish to enjoy to enjoy the beautiful landscape. But met up with two of the biggest guys on the beach stuffing their faces with sandwiches. They were having a fine old time telling jokes taking the Micky out of each other, when all of a sudden the slightly less large fellow (Pete) rod bent over and he landed a beautiful Bass of over 5lb. With this the even larger guy (Mossy) remarked "you stuffy T;;;T thats a cracker" with the thought of a cracker imediatelywent back into his giant Pinic Basket. It was like watching the Yogi Bear show. While trying to keep mysides from splitting, I noticed Yogi doing a Hop Skip and Jump towards one of his two rods shouting while spitting out one of his door steps "oh F;;; look at that. His rod was bent double and after a struggle he landed a bigger Bass of 5lb 8oz. "look at the size of that" he said. I looked straight towards the over sized pinic basket thinking he talking about his foodagain. "The Bass you pr;;;. I turned towards Pete and he's shouting wait till you see the size of this one I've got on. And after a short fight he landed a Bull Huss over 6lb. Mossy shouted thats one ugly F;;;;; and I said just because he has caught more fish than you , you shouldnt say such things about Pete. Well Yogi and BooBoo where have a whale of a time. I was thinking I've spent alot of good money watching Comedians who couldnt make me laugh as much. Then BooBoo was in again with another Bass of 2lb. It was all too much for my sides so I had to retreat too my little fishing lodge in the quaint village of Malltreath. So you see its not just all about the fishing . ITS THE CRACK ! p.s. Two Great guys Pete. And Mossy. Thanks. Mal.

Fished the Menia out on my own boat Heron 1 , Saturday 24th March 07. Caught Herring, small Whiting and Dog fish. Weather was nice fishing was about what I would of expected for this time of year, but between seasons. Still think the Trawlers are killing our sport, and we cannot blame the French, as they only take approximately 3% of our Cod stocks. Tight lines Danny

Fished deep hole near bridge nothing. What a bad day, been fishing the Straits on my own boat for 20 year, gets worse every year WHERE HAVE ALL THE FISH GONE.
