Llyn Peninsular

Postby Richie Fisher » Sun Jun 03, 2018 3:15 pm

Had the weekend down at my caravan on the Lleyn. Weather was glorious, in fact it was too hot. On the Saturday I got up at 6am to fish a well-known mark for tope from the rocks. To my horror, on arrival at the mark, it is now completely surrounded with pots with the nearest one less than 25 metres from me. It became apparent that it was unfishable as any cast in any direction was catching on the lines and causing me to pull for a break. I've fished this mark for a number of years and it was always my favourite but I very much doubt I'll return again.

I had to make the most of a bad situation so I decided to throw feathers within the boundaries and also float fished for an hour. I probably had four or five pollock and the same number of ballan wrasse. Nothing big but it kept me occupied.

Biggest Pollock 12ozs

Biggest wrasse 1lb 1oz

The walk back up the mountain was an absolute killer in the baking hot sun.

Bl**dy hell Ritchie, I thought it was you! I felt for you with the pots; there was a string right across you, from left to right.

That was me and my son in the boat at around 12 noon. We stopped off on the way back from Bardsey and dropped off on the way to the next mark whilst waiting for the tide run. We spent a few minutes to your right (nothing showing), had one drift along the "wall" to your left (had a few Pollack of around 1.5lb each) and headed off. I've put a report up in the small boats section if you're interested.

Good to hear from you Kev. I noticed your boat when you were to my left. Lots of dolphins surfacing, did you see them? I'll never forget that 24hrs when we saw dolphins, a minky whale and a pine martin, good times.

Good times indeed mate :thumbsup:

The bay is full of Dolphins at the moment. Had them right next to and even just a few feet under the boat.

Gimme a shout if you're heading over again. Not wet a line from the shore in nearly 12 months.

(btw - it turns out those small Pollack (6-8 inches) are great live-bait ;))
