Had the op0rtunity to stay in the old butlins site for a couple of days foc with the mrs and kids, can't stand the place but with a chance of a spot of fishing i was persuaded to go.
The better half wasn't to hp to see the rods where coming with us but hey, thats life.
Took her shopping and the like so managed a few hours in the evening, high water was about 11 oclock so decided to fish low water up.
Picked some rag and mack from the shop in the town.

Along with me and the lad came the our kid who fishes annualy and can't remember the last time he caught anything and the nephew.
We decided to go along side the rocks.

Within minutes of the first cast, brought in the inevitable dog, :D no blank for me.

Image

Rod No 2 had been out for 10 minute and resulted in baby spider crab and another dog.


Image


The action on my rods was constant with dabs and dogs, it would have been getting tedius only the bro had yet to land anything :lol: "it is not enough to succeed but everyone else must fail" :lol:

Then i managed to land this

Image

and then this

Image

As i was basking in the glory of my first bream catch, the inevitable happened, with the bro being a spoil sport and landing a dab :(

By now the shadows were getting long

Image


and we headed to make last orders.

An excellent few hours with the bonus of a free lunch.

Nice report.

What are bream like for eating? Not too boney?

Also, the bigger spider crabs, can you eat them? Always thought you could.
Make a difference - take home 1 piece of someone's angling litter next time you are out fishing.

The bream i thought were very tasty, the bones in them were fairly large so could be picked out easy.As for the spider crabs i think they are nicer than normal crabs, not as much on them thow.

Had them on rag, may have had a few more if it wasn't for those meddlin dogs.

For those not staying at the camp - find Afon Wen on map where there is a road/track down to the beach. On the other side of the headland is a track to the headland, but dodgy parking ;) last time I was there.
I've tended to treat it as a low water mark, but high works as well ;)
I only post in the best possible taste
