Holyhead Break From The Air

Holyhead Break From The Air

A place where everything is caught, along the whole mile and 3 quarter length on almost every bait.


Mackerel, rag and sandeel is most used.

Dear Sam

Fabulous photo. How'd you get it?

Thanks very much for the information. Ive walked along the Break hundreds of times and am always saying, "Caught anything yet?".

Occasionally I get an affirmative or that classic, "Caught a spider crab that was prettier than his girlfriend." as he nods at his mate.

It's an excellent area for fishing, whether you dangle your rod over the inner harbour or on the seaward side.

On calm, sunny blue sky days it is absolutely glorious. Then there's the Holyhead Breakwater Country Park and Rocky Coast.

My mate Denis Hadley tells me that the latter is a beautiful place, but the wash from the incoming ferries does make it rather dangerous at times.

Nonetheless, taking care and watching after your mate, then it's brilliant.

Thanks Sam

Wil

breakwater fishing

Hi Wil

Just thought I'd lay a comment on Holyhead Breakwater fishing.

Last year (I know its over 12 months ago) but we dug bait over in Colwyn Bay then proceeded to the Breakwater. The tide was around 10:00pm and we fished until about 2:00am.

Mainly we caught doggies and small whiting, but at the beginning of the Breakwater - on the left of the main picture - you can also fish off there. Mostly wrasse and dog fish.

During a February fishing trip conger eel, cod, whiting, dogfish and a little gem of a lobster.

There are pots to be caught out of this little bay so baited up with mackrel and caught quite a few.

Must mention that there is a drop of arround 20 foot here, so you have to very careful.
You can park your car on the grassed over hill and set up and cast. Just my type of fishing.

I will be venturing over in the first week of June 2012 so hopefully there will be more species to catch.

I will post her after my trip.

Regards,

Ray Johnson



Dear Ray,

You're right. If you take the time to find the right spot around the Holyhead Brakwater.

Keep an eye for the odd mean and hungry seal, though. Plenty of the buggers around.

Take care and see you soon.

Wil
