General Sea Fishing Trips Around Anglesey, North Wales
Due to the close proximity to the A55 expressway, Beaumaris is an ideal venue for a general days charter fishing, being only 1.5 hrs drive away from large cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.
The sea fishing around the coast of Anglesey can produce a vast variety of species of fish, Mackerel, Whiting, Dabs, Dogfish, Gurnards, Thornback Rays, Tope, Pollack, Codling, Spurdog, Herring, Bass, and Bullhuss to name but a few, and all within 1 hrs steaming from Beaumaris pier.
Depending upon which way the wind is blowing, the Starida boats can fish either side of The Isle of Anglesey, fishing in relatively sheltered waters for the duration of the trip. The size of the tide is no real problem as the bays close inshore can provide good fishing and a steady flow whilst the tide is running at its hardest.
Wreck Fishing Trips Around Anglesey, North Wales
Due to the close proximity to the A55 expressway, Beaumaris is an ideal venue for a wreck fishing trip, being only 1.5 hrs drive away from large cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.
The wreck fishing off Anglesey between May and November produces a good selection of quality fish; Cod, Pollack, Ling, Conger Eel, and Coalfish being the usual target species, but other quality fish are regularly caught from around the wreck and not just over it, such as large Tope to 60lb, Spurdog, Tub Gurnard to 7lb, and large Bullhuss not being uncommon.
There is a vast selection of wrecks of all shapes and sizes and at a wide variety of depths, due to Anglesey's close proximity to the major shipping lanes to and from Liverpool which was a regular hunting ground for U- Boats during the war.
Sea Fishing Seasons - When's Best?
The following is a brief overview of a typical years fishing aboard the Starida boats, so that depending upon the month you book, you have a good idea of what to expect.
January, February, March and April: On the whole these months early on in the year tend to be a little `hit and miss`. There can be some fine, flat calm sunny days in these months and when the water visibility is good, then Herring are caught on the flood on small tides at Puffin Sound or the boatyard Beaumaris. Thornbacks, Whiting and Dabs can be found, plenty some days, poor others, and the wreck fishing is a little slow, but some Pollack & Cod can sometimes be found.
During April the fishing `picks up` with more plentiful catches of Herring, Whiting and Dabs, The Great Ormes Head can produce some cracking sport, and the inshore banks and bays continue to produce some nice Thornbacks on the fresh Herring as bait. The wrecks produce some more Pollack and Codling also when the weather permits.
May and June: Now the fishing begins to come into its own, some fantastic sport can be enjoyed down the side of Puffin Island at certain states of the tide, for Herring, Pollack Mackeral, Coalfish, Codling and a few Bass. Fishing with Hokkai`s and Shrimp rigs, a mixture of these fish can be caught on the same cast! The wrecks produce some excellent Cod & good Coalfish offshore with some Pollack around the beginning of June, along with some excellent Spurdog fishing, a few miles away on a couple of banks. Gurnards and Tope also start to show, and in June the mackeral arrive in large quantities.
