ManxManx Fisher said:I've had 14 species out of my best (and obviously favourtie) mark, including some of my best fish. I think I could bump that up by a couple yet - I haven't tried for a rockling but they will be there and I have seen mullet cruising by. There are some mini species as well, but I don't count them.
Luckily for me, it isn't fished by many other people, and is in a stunning location. I have even seen dolphins on some occassions.
I certainly know where I want my ashes to be scattered
Trouble with having such a good mark is that it is tempting to go there every trip, but varitey is the spice of life.
Swellymanswelleyman said:This is a good thread but lets get a bit organised perhaps?
How about some headings?
Venue or Type Rocky, beach, Muddy etc.?
Then how about the actual species caught and the ones you've seen caught there?
Gorad Goch - Menai Straits - Rocky/kelpy eddy off main current, but muddy at high water mark (great spot for peelers)
Baits used: Crab, rag and fish strips (real ones mostly but had a codling on fish'n'strips!)
Species caught - 90% at Low water + 2 hours
Lesser Spotted Dogfish
Flounder (onto muddy part at half tide)
Bullhead - how it took a 1/0 i'll never know!
Not caught myself there, but seen there
Mullet - this year i'll catch!
Bl**dy Sea Trout - tried catching there for 50 years, but this year!
