  1. Boat Oystercat 25-26/08/2017

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    25th Really poor evenings fishing on the Oystercat; a dozen or so bass. Only 3 insize, 2 smooth hounds - one on a red gill on the drift!! A couple of hours on the reef only yielded a few dogs, hounds and huss. At least the weather conditions made it a pleasant boat ride! 26th A lovely...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    As the boat has been out of the water for 2 weeks for antifouling etc I've been itching to get out. The forecast for the weekend was pretty poor Friday/Saturday but great for Sunday so, I put a trip together to head down to Lundy for the first time this year. We put the boat back in Saturday...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    I'm not sure how; but John Elvins seems to have the uncanny ability to pick dates out of the calendar and say 'Thats a good tide for a trip to {x}' and the weather seems to fall right; I don't know what or maybe who he sacrifices to the weather gods, but it seems to work! Saturday was proposed...
  6. Boat Oystercat 26-27/09/2015

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Saturday - 26th Evenings and bad weather starting to draw in as we move closer and closer to winter, we decided to make the most of the reasonable forecast and head down to Lundy - probably for the last time this year. We got the first lock and made our way down to the island; stopping for bait...
