Oh that's a bit of a shame, as high water on Saturday 2 June at Holyhead is 09:00 and 21:32 - maybe we should try for around the Island.

true, i went out at 7.30-8.30 the other night, the wind drops and its all calm.

However sunset was 9.29 the other night, so HT at 9.30 is a little on the late side. Plus it would take me an hour or two to get back.

A friends just done his pb2 and is looking for a rib though, so will be doing some runs out in the evening over the next few weeks, so will give you a pm.

I have had a few good days out this week on the rib, had some decent fish, plenty of mackeral about now as well, not managed a bass yet though. Lost yet another anchor on wednesday out by llandwyn island, I must have put a ton of metal on that seabed in the last few years !!
