From late October the beach can produce a good run of coalfish with fish over 3lbs fairly common at times. Odd codling are taken from the edge of the rocks in front of the village, again from the end of October.
Fresh crab is the main bait for the bass and flounders, with black lug tipped with squid also good for the bass, and try ragworm for the flounder.
Tip lug off with mackerel or sandeel for the whiting and dabs, though half a medium sized sandeel picks out the bigger whiting.
Razorfish can fish well for the flounder from October on.
TACKLE AND TACTICS
A bass rod or beachcaster with 3 to 5ozs of lead and 15lb line is perfect here. Long range can produce bigger bass in high surf conditions, but generally shorter 40 to 60-yard casts produces the most fish.
Top rigs are one-hook clipped down rigs and 3/0 hooks for the bass, with three-hook flappers and size 1 or 2 Aberdeen's best for general species.
The beach fishes best the two hours either side of low water towards the rock finger walking west along the beach.
But can also produce either side of low and high water and for the first two hours of the ebb fishing tight to the rocks at the eastern end of the beach.
This being the most popular spot.
Night spring tides give the best sport, but bass also show in calming seas after a good blow.
Neap tides are good for flounder, whiting and dabs during calmer seas at night.
BOOKS ON SEA FISHING
GETTING TO RHOSNEIGR
• Travel across Anglesey on the A55 Expressway.
• Halfway across the Island take Junction 5 for Rhosneigr.
• Follow this road through Engedi. A few miles later you arrive in the small village of Llanfaelog.
• One of the first things you see in Llanfaelog is Bryn Coed Garage on the right (car sales not petrol) and then the village church on the left.
• Turn Right opposite the church.
Take care because the turning can be blind to oncoming traffic. Creep forward to take advantage of the wide junction.
• Follow this road all the way to Rhosneigr a mile or so ahead and past the Anglesey Golf Club into the village.
• Turn right opposite the village clock and 200m down the road is Rhosneigr Beach.
Remember to stop at the bottom otherwise you’re quite literally on the beach.
I am a great believer in the truth and stating what it is that you want from life. Sometimes you need a little help - some divine intervention, perhaps.
I've learned that it pays to have more than one MODUS OPERANDI.
If one contingency doesn't work, then you have another to hand.
When I'm on the beach and a profound desire strikes me, then I pick-a-stick and write the thought or desire in the sand to allow the sea to carry it to the world to be brought back fulfilled.
This all works on the same general principle as Tibetan Prayer Flags. It's a theory under development, but it's got great potential.
I'm sure you'll agree that the Rhosneigr Beaches are excellent beaches for carrying out these profound experiments.
There again, you could always just tell the person.
