As my best mate couldn't come to Wales this weekend, I fished alone. On that basis I stayed away from my favourite rock marks and stayed on the "safer" stuff.

Friday morning, went to Borth y Gest on low tide. Put out a 3 hook flapper on my new beachcaster with a variety of bait. I started to set up my spinning rod to try a bit of plugging, got a clonking bite on the beachcaster, dropped the spinner and landed a feisty 2lb bass taken on lug. Not even 6,00am yet. Well happy. As it happens, didn't get another bite before I left at 9.00am.

Saturday morning went to Pwllheli. Put out 2 beachcasters. Only bite I got was as I was breaking the first of the 2 rods to go home. Result? 1 smallish dog.

Went out today back to Borth y Gest and blanked. Went to Trefor pier for an hour this afternoon and did no good until once again I started to pack up. Got a little knock (which tbh I thought was probably a crab) and reeled in a poor cod.

Not the most prolific of weekends, even for me. But I got out, learned some more (especially on the spinning rod as I put some lures through their paces and watched them work) and enjoyed myself enormously.

Tight lines :)

Unlucky chap, but at least you didn't blank:clap:

I'll be up at caravan all next week (I hope theres some Purple moose left) I'll post a report from BYG and surrounding area.

I want another crack at Shell island and also your mark for the wrasse if the weed dont stop me:thumbdown

Well done on the bass (they all count!)

Went to Point Lynas on Sunday and fished over HW. Couldn't believe that a place that looked as though it had so much promise yielded just one micro-pollack in 4 hours. But the weather was brilliant and we saw seals and dolphins feeding c. 200 m offshore. That's where the few terns and gannets were too, so there were definitely fish about.
Disappointed that I couldn't even rouse a wrasse - maybe next time.

SteveyB - didn't go to the bridge because the tides were wrong based on the info you gave me. Better be quick if you want any moose though, my mate drinks it like he once had one stolen LOL

Cabbie - thanks for the tip. I kind of assumed that it would be micro species down the stumps. We've dropped a prawn net down there before and hauled up sea scorpions, prawns and a butterfish. Oh and one over exuberant doggie!

Mermaid - I only really went to Trefor to use up the remainder of my bait (and to avoid the tidying up / cleaning / packing before going home :) )

Planning next weekend already!
