Report:

Mate and I tried Pwllheli beach by Gimblet Rock - lovely sunny day, calm sea. -3H HW to +1HW (HW 5pm). Not a single bite - chap from Abersoch Angling stated beach only comes alive after dark - ususally nothing at all till the sun goes down especially as water was gin clear. At least we know now - saves a long journey! We are going to try night fishing next time - at least we might get a few doggies!

Bait: crab,mackeral

Report:

Sorry for the late report but just got sorted out at work etc. I spent a week at the haven site at Pwllheli. Took a spinning rod out on the hunt for some mackies but none about and on my travels came across a bay where two people where fishing so had a chat they had 2 nice bass on crab the wind was blowing straight at them here. So made a mental note to try another daty. On the way back I played around trying a popper it was different trying to get them to work but still no fish. Nice day got some crab at 80p each from tack;le shop as the local beach only gave me 3 small peelers and that night set off to try the bay bass mark (took wife along aswell for the company) I got there and the tide was just turning pperfect I thought the only difference was there no wind. Result was a blank although we did see the dolphines further out which was nice. Wednesday saw me at Gimlet Rock whilst wife an girls went shopping, 2 other anglers there who both blanked whilst I caught a dab and a spider crab. I was informed the fishing was dire the worst for 20 years by one of the anglers. When the wife came back I moved towards the golf course end for a while but nothing at all. So nice break but poor results

Bait: Rag, Squid, Mackeral, Peeler, Sandeel, Lug

Report:

fished low + 5 amongst 21 other rods. Only 3 fish caught by all. 1 doggy and 2 bream (1 to me yippeeee). Bream came to a size 6 baited with a small piece of rag and tipped with a tiny slice of squid. Quite a few others quit before we left, definately a case of "you should of been here yesterday" Shaun lost a few hooks, with no bites. so we're guessing spider crabs. Weed not to much of a problem. cheers Simon

Bait: Crab/Lug/Mackeral/Squid

Report:

Used to do well here about 20 years ago, fishing into the harbour outflow by 2 large concrete blocks through which the main channel passes - well its all change now, no concrete blocks and continous boat traffic - cant believe how much has altered since those days. Anyhow, onto the report. 2 Sessions really, first on top of gimlet rock in the day. Was sweltering. -1 HW +2. Load of kids jumping in off the rock, plus litter everywhere, and puddles of urine :( Absolutely shocking state. Heart really wasnt in it because of the state of this otherwise lovely spot. Did a bit of lure fishing, and large bait on other rod - result just one dog fish, oh and a king scallop, bigger than my hand! Packed up and planned dusk/night session. Had high hopes fishing harbour entrance -1 LW +3. Large crab baits on pennel pulley. First cast out and small shoal of mackeral turns up, at which point some noddy off to my left decides to cast right over my line to the shoal. Oh well. Continued fishing until 1am, and just a doggy and silver eel to show for efforts, with a couple of other missed knocks (nothing decent missed though I think). When went back to car, saw pile of litter that the noddy and his family had chucked out of their car when they left. How bad its the adults who are chucking away the litter infront of their kids? I would of got a right smacking if I littered when I was a nipper. Anyhow cleaned it up anyhow, but this littering is driving me nuts. Would of cleaned up Gimlet spot - but I draw the line at fishing old traces and crisp packets out of puddles of urine. If anyone is reading this who has littered in the past, then pull you socks up - think about the environment you fish, and how you are ruining it for everyone, not just the fisherman. Take home your litter.

Bait: ragworm, sandeel and fresh mackeral

Report:

First time we had fished this venue so not sure what to expect. We had driven from Yorkshire for a few days Tope fishing from Mats boat but our plans to fish off the island off Abadaron was not to be due to poor weather. we checked in to the tackle shop for bait and local advise and were told the Rays had gone but there were plenty of Black Bream and mackeral. We decided to fish Gimlet rock, so we put two rods out at range with sandeel and one two rods at mid range with Ragworm. We caught dogfish and our first ever Black Bream, there was also loads of mackeral about so we were kept busy. We decided to fish the two rods at range with fresh mackeral and I had a huge bite which took rod off rest but i only connected for a brief second. The next cast the same thing happened but this time whatever hit my bait ran in to the beach but i did not connect. Then as I was rebaiting i heard Mats real scream and saw his rod disappearing off his rest and was being dragged in to the sea, I managed just to grab it before it was dragged in to the sea. Mat then hung on to the rod as the fish took one powerfull run out to sea ! We knew now that this had to be a Tope. Just as we were wondering if it would ever stop it finaly turned and Mat was able to play the fish back to the beach where I managed to grab its tail and bring it on to the beach. The fish was photographed and returned alive. We had no scales but estimated it to be a good 35 LB. Shortly after that the wind picked up and the weed became to much so we packed in. But a fantastic experience to catch a Tope from the shore. We will be back again !!

Report:

Round 3 of the WSF Summer League. The sun shone, the sea was clear and calm. First three casts brought good knocks, but no fish, and that was the end of the excitement for me. Had one little rattle about three hours in, which also failed to turn into fish, and by that time the weed was starting to become a real pain rather than a minor inconvenience. Doggies were coming out further along the beach. Well done Shacky, Kammy and Big Kev.

Report:

Round Three of the Summer League & BLAS match. The weather was on our side for once. But the fishing was slow, The Dogs did oblige, They were very cautious biters at best & you had to pick your moment to strike. The weed became a major problem near high water. Which made it all but impossible to fish, apart from a short lob. As usual the company was great and there were a lot of happy F.A. Cup day anglers.

Report:

Whent to pwllheli for the day, my two girls had an inset day from school, so we all took a trip. As per normal I took the rods and a selection of baits that I'd got from moreton angling, didn't bother to check the tides (mistake) but it was meant to be a trip to the "beach". Miss q'd on the tides, got there and the tide was well on the way out, managed to take a dog almost straight away and then a small but very greedy flounder, before the weed stoppped play. This is a beautifull place to be let alone fish from, I will return and next time i'll fish the night tide, cause this is a bass mark if ever i've seen one. both fish returned. Highly recommended

Report:

Fished gimblet rock 2hrs up & 2 down, started with sandeel and was getting some really fast bites but just couldn't connect with them, suspected it could be bream so I swapped over to a 3 hook size 4 flapper with thumbnail sized pieces of mackeral - next two casts I got two thornies?? Then got doggies and dabs and the little hooks did the job!! I noticed the boats out by the yellow bouy were catching what looked like mackeral so changed over to feathers and caught two bass followed by two mackeral?? Strange day but one of the best i've had from Gimblet.

Bait: home made %feathers% tipped with mackerel

Report:

Huge shoals of mackerel fishing off the headland at the old Butlins camp sometimes close in and fast moving sometimes 50-80yds out and slow moving feeding on small silver fish (wish I knew what they are) Water literally boiling with Mackerel at times. Most effective method silver foil 'feathers' (made from filter coffee packets) on size 6 hooks tipped with small peices of mackerel. Fished here 2 weeks ago with similar results. Filled my freezer for the winter and returned many many more to fight another day. Great fun on my Carp rod. Noticed that (during the day ONLY) the security guards at the camp gates (only way to venue) allow cars to come and go without asking any questions. Beautiful venue, excellent fishing.
