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.
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.
