    North West & the Isle of Man Catch Reports
    Fished down to low on the big tide a couple of days back. Fairly quiet at first with just small whiting and dogfish coming out. Rays came on feed about 90 mins before low and I had of around 2lb and another just over 9lb. Just before low tip wrapped over again and a good scrap...

  5. Shakespeare Agility Rough Ground Rod

    Tackle & Equipment Discussions
    Hi all, Has anyone on here used the Shakespeare Agility 2 Rough Ground rod? Specifically the 13ft rough ground model. If so, what's it like; is it really an out-and-out rough ground rod (which is what I'm after), or is it a bit soft like the rest of the Agility range? Cheers, Brodie.

    South West Catch Reports
    Still some good Conger about at New Passage on Mackerel fillet, best about 10lb and a few Codling to 2lb on squid, [not black lug though]. There would have been more if "some of us" were to hook all the fish that were biting! I missed 3 BIG drop-backs.... 20ft+ of slack on worm and squid baits...
  8. Shore Upper BC Sunday 28.10.18

    South West Catch Reports
    Met up with Kriscnc and a few other hardy souls, [lunatics], that decided to brave the N.E. winds to throw bait into very choppy water this morning. Not a lot happening with just a small conger early on and a very small codling for me on squid/mackerel. Others had small codling to fresh worm...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Smallest of weather windows presented its self on Sunday; the tide was small, big westerly swell and wind were from the south-east, which meant fishing locally would be difficult to find somewhere where we'd hold reasonably well, so we headed over the other side to fish one of the wrecks...

    Scotland Catch Reports
    Hi all I'm from Arbroath and there are plenty cod and flatties here but I fancy trying something a bit different. Has anyone had any luck catching conger on the east coast of Scotland? if so where?
  11. Imax FR Match Extreme

    Tackle & Equipment Discussions
    Hi all, I'm looking for opinions on the above rod. I am wondering how it compares to the Leeda Icon Ultra Power or RT Axe. I would be using the rod over rough ground with a SL30SH in the low reel position, using large baits and 5/6oz leads to target large Huss and Congers- is the Imax suitable...
  12. Boat Oystercat 15/10/2017

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    The forecast was for a small lull between 2 periods of strong wind, as the forecast was for Southerly winds and it fell on a small tide we opted to head over the other side of the channel to make the most of the shelter the land would offer. We left on the first lock, arriving at the wreck we...

  14. Shore The night Mudsta stole the show, DOUBLE BASS VIDEO!!!

    South Coast & CI Catch Reports
    We cast and watch our tips, Lightened are our eyes, The rain is on our lips, We do not fish for prize, We know those whom we trust, And whitherward we fare, We fish because we must, In the cold damp air. The waters of the seas, Are troubled as by storm, The tempest strips the trees, And does...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    02/04/2017 The locks were closed for 2 weeks; so the 2nd of April was the first trip out in Swansea in a couple of weeks. Only 3 of us on board so we had plenty of space. We started the day in Oxwich - normally we'd try drifting around this time of year to avoid the dogfish, but as there was...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    31-12-2016 New years eve we decided to have a run over to the other side for a change. We left Swansea on the first lock, arriving in blue anchor bay at around 9am. Bites came pretty quickly with a few small thornbacks, conger and whiting - but bites died off after a few hours, so we moved a...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    17th: A fairly late start @ 8:30am, it was the day after my works due so I didn't think it would be wise to start too early! Thankfully as we made our way out into the bay it was mirror flat!! So the hangover wouldn't be amplified by the boat slopping around. We started the day on a small bit...
  19. inshore - 50yds out !

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Friday evening we ventured down The Haven with a hardy crew of 4 top local anglers. From the start we caught a few Rays and thankfully not too many of the trusty dogs ! Some good whiting showed, I got the kettle on and we settled in for a steady, pleasant evening. Soon the shout went up, net...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Friday's forecast was fantastic - as we're quickly approaching the clocks going back and the marina returning to weekday's last lock of 7:30pm I want to take the opportunity to do an evening trip. In short, the trip was a bit of a dud, we had lots of jumbo pout, whiting and dogs, but only 1...
