No reports from Anglesey as yet. It was dire last year. Water too warm, algae, seals......who knows why :?

Few mates of mine have been pulling them in off the break water, not been out myself or out in the boat yet.

Whilst on Arran for a week this August I was taken out by one of the locals to service his lobster pots, he uses mackerel as the bait so we had to catch some whilst out there. I caught 60 odd in just over 30 minutes :grin: including several washing lines of one on every hook :grin: . We then went close inshore between the rocky outcrops to get several pollack :thup: I cannot say enough about how friendly everyone we met on Arran was.

Unfortunately they're probably fattened on radioactive turds around the IoM :!: .
