Decided to book a trip to Holy head for a days fishing in different waters,
The boat we chose to go on was called Bad Boys, she is 38ft long with 270sq ft of deck space
Bad Boys skipper is called Mel, he offers a 10 hr trip which would be mixed fishing on various marks over rough ground,sandy bottom,and wreck fishing
Breakfast was sausage and egg butties and hotpot for dinner with tea n coffee all day, for 40 pound per person, :'(
I can tell you now its worth every penny,
Mel called me on Thur night to confirm the trip was on,we arranged to set sail at 9 30am.
Early start on Fri morning, with the alarm set for 5 am,
Arrived in Holy head at 8 20am. about a 2hrs 30Min’s journey
which left enough time to get a coffee and get some bait which was recommended rag n squid
As we approached Bad Boys we were greeted by the skipper his friend and his friends son, first question to us was, tea or coffee lads?
As we supped our coffee Mel steamed out to our first mark,
First destination was for bait, fresh mackerel,
After doing a bit of searching we eventually hit in to them, full house every time ,then nothing as we drifted over the shoal, we managed to fill the box which was a enough for a days fishing
mark number 2 was in around 45ft of water over a wreck, dropped anchor and started fishing.
I was using a two hook pennal rig loaded with rag and squid, and mackerel mixed,
my dad hit into a bullhuss first
Then i got a knock thinking it could be my first bullhuss, and a doggie came up oh no not doggies
