Treaddur Bay Fish N Meet 11/08/2007

Six of us met at the Ringbolt car park on Saturday. The sun had been shining when we'd left home and the winds light. However once past Conway the sky had clouded over and the wind had got up. Treaddur bay was unfishable, and Ringbolt wasn't looking good. We decided to go to Llanbadrig where the wind would be offshore and over our heads.

We climbed down to the platform and got ourselves organised

Image

Gruffdris was first in with a poorcod

Image
the first of many which was just as well, as the wrasse were not really playing.

Next up a wrasse
Image
and the a pollock for Paul
Image

Gruff had some wrasse
Image

as did I

Image

Rod got into the wrasse eventually with this one that came up from the deep

Image

Clive had been catching poor cod steadilly, but also managed a Tompot blenny

Image

and a dogfish too

Image

I put the general lack of wrasse down to middow declaring that he would like one for the table. He did the worst of us all, only saving a blank with this guy

Image

Even hyper moaning didn't work for him, maybe he should learn to do it in welsh - "Does dim pysgod yn y mor" !

More shots from the day

Thanks to everyone who turned up and thanks to Moreton Angling Centre for the prize which went to me for my 160cm of fish
