Menai Straits

Hi all, heading down to the Menai Straits for the first time this weekend (Friday to Monday), i've had a read of some of the old posts and info I can find.

Is the best launching still under the bridge? We're staying near Caernarfon. Hoping to head out to Puffin Island, and maybe get a little fishing in. Also just generally taking a look around.

If anyones got any comments or tips they'd be more than welcomed!

Thanks

Tom

The best launch (imho) is with Chris at Ty Calch, just outside Caernavon

Chris is definitely not launching.

The slip at Menai bridge is good at all tides.

Hi guys, yes, sorry we close now for the winters. There is simply not enough activity to make it viable, and the tractors suffer terribly with the infrequent use.
If anyone wants to use our slipway during the winter months, that's fine, (there's no charge!)
Just give us a bell on 07917859345 and I'll advise you whereabouts on the beach to launch etc depending on the tide that day.
Regards Chris.
