easily done, it took me years watching BBC Wales, yes wales, even though I have English postcode and phone number I'm 0.25 mile over the border, to realize they kept saying carmarthen not caernarvon, with the twang it's easily confused and I just didn't recognize the places in caernarvon (or not) that they were filming!

Perhaps so, but I bet the lorry driver didn't make that mistake again

Welcome, you should ask for commission from the farmer, I imagine you will get a few takers on here!

Hi Chris, that's great. I will probably take you up on the boat storage & B&B, weather permitting.
This months "Sea Angler" magazine has an article on fishing the Menai Strait + a supplement dedicated to Bass fishing, makes an interesting read.

Sorry to hijack your thread, but I had a cracking bass day yesterday over hook sands just outside Poole harbour. It was blowing like bu**ery and quite an interesting sea state. I landed my personal best of 7 pounds and a trio at 3 pounds each. The 7 pounder was really interesting to play while trying to prevent the rolling waves breaking over the boat (single handed). All caught on a green and gold Rapala sliver lure. I've never had a fish that size before and my fishing crate was too small. It was a bit interesting when one of teh smaller bass fell off the hook into the boat as I was landing it(suddenly a bombard aerotech 380 seems a bit small)!! Once they stopped biting i had great fun surfing around on the waves. A sib with a decent engine certainly provides a fun in touch way of experiencing the elements! Tight lines on your trip.

How do you fish the Rapala? trolling or on a slow retrieve?

I was trolling it, it was too rough to keep the boat still. I think that the boat being thrown around a bit was probably making the lure action all the more appealing to the bass.

I'll be bringing the mashing gear for a brew up aboard, weather permitting. Being a menai virgin, which wind direction/force blow it out?

It is customary for all menai virgins to lace any mash with a large measure of suitable spirit by the way

Oh and by the way
Took 8 bods on a fishing trip last Thursday up and down the Strait
Nowt too serious.
Anyway, no bass but a bloody big wrasse and a few codling worth having!
So there is sumatt about!

Yeh, bloody thermals alright
Temp has dropped
Saw 6 in new money on the temp gauge today.

Also, spoke to Chris at Ty Calch.
If anyone is going to use his facilities, we could do with letting him know.
Although, strictly speaking its 'season over' He will be there, plus He would probably have bait and stuff if He knew some No.s.
Do we have a head count?

I,m jumping in a RIB at Dinorwic.

Tea & single malt, that's just toooo decadent even by Yorkshire standards I might be able to rustle up some 2+4 fuel conditioner though.

We are definites, weather permitting. If it's foul, then that's a definite not
