Well doesnt time fly by, With the 2017 season about to start, Haf-Aled is out of the water having her annual TLC before being relaunched on the 8th March.
2016 was another great year, with Haf-Aled being put through her paces on some more fantastic trips! Having such comfort and speed has made her very popular with both existing and new customers alike, her speed cutting hrs off steaming times out to the distant wrecks of the Irish Sea, giving our customers hrs more fishing time!
We saw some great catches on the wrecks of St George’s Channel, including Pollock to over 16ibs, Cod to over 12ibs and some good sized ling and Coalie showing. Cardigan Bay again provided some good sport with excellent catches of Tope and some nice sized Black Bream, Huss, Rays, Whiting and Dabs. Bardsey Isle once again gave us some awesome fishing with good numbers of Pollock, Cod and Bass.
For our annual shark week we traveled to Milford Haven as our base in 2016, this gave us nearly 2hrs more fishing time each day than we used to get by being based at Fishguard due to the shorter journey to the sharking grounds. On our best day we caught over 70 shark (inc 3 Porbeagles to over 160ibs). Fantastic fun and made a great change to the normal everyday fishing for me and my anglers! So look forward to these trips every year, im sure i smiled all the way back to Pwllheli on my return journey!!!
Due to another windy year, we unfortunately didnt get over to Ireland on our 2 day wrecking trip in 2016 but have planned a couple for 2017 again, cross fingers that the weather gods are kinder this year!!! Places on these trips are limited so please get in touch sooner rather than later if you would like to book yourself a space.
Prices for 2017 are going to stay the same as 2015 & 2016 as fuel prices have stayed reasonably low, however we reserve the right to increase the prices of the trips during the year if fuel prices increase.
Thank you all so much again for your continued support and i look forward to seeing you all again in 2017 for some more great fishing adventures aboard Haf-Aled!
