2016 Season nearly here

Share Button

Here we are again with the 2016 season about to start. We are really looking forward to another great year of fishing aboard our amazing new 10m Cougar catamaran ‘Haf-Aled’, which performed beyond all expectations during her first season of 2015! Along with her huge deck space , comfortable sheltered seating, easy access and cruising at 25knts, with a top speed of over 40knts she was sure to impress! The cruising speed has shaved so much off the travelling time to our fishing marks giving our customers so much more fishing time at no extra cost. And although 2015 was the windiest year to date, the fishing was fantastic with so many PB’s being broken!NW Fishing Charter-29

As usual the reefs of the lleyn peninsula and Bardsey Island produced fantastic days of sport with many different species of fish being caught, showing a healthy marine environment that is sustainably fished year after year. We had good numbers Pollack upto 9lbs, Cod to 7lbs and Coalie to 5lbs. As usual there were plenty of Wrasse (both ballan and coockoo), as well as many other species of fish.

The Wrecks fished well again last season, with plenty of Pollack to 17lbs, Cod to 12lbs, Ling to 12lbs and Coalie to 7lbs. 2015 was a year to remember for the Tope fishing, with so many over the 60lbs being caught as well as a new (Haf-Aled) boat record Tope of 76lbs by Graham Eaton from the Wirral. The Bream went to 2.5lbs and we had a good run of Bass to over 8lbs. New laws now state that ‘no Bass are to be kept by the recreational angler until 1st July and from then until the end of the year only one bass per person per day can be kept’! So if u have booked a Bass trip with me this year you need to be aware of this and may want to think about changing or cancelling the trip if you are not happy with the new rules. There may be a chance that they change this rule by the summer as there are many people trying to fight it. Although we agree that Bass stocks need protecting we also think they have taken it too far on this occasion. If you agree that the new rule is unfair then please contact your MP/AM with your views as this is the only hope we have of changing it. If you wish to keep your Bass booking until nearer the time to see what happens that is fine. We are also putting a couple of two day Wrecking trips together, staying in Ireland for a night to sample some of the Irish atmosphere before returning the next day. The fishing can be special on these trips as it gives us plenty of time to check out far off wrecks that are hardly ever fished!

2015 was also a year that we saw some PB Sharks for the boat and for some of our customers. On our 9 day trip to southern waters we landed over 200 (Blue and Porbeagle) Sharks, many going well over 100lbs and a cracking 160lbs Porgy for Aled Nicholas!12768011_1114011098632233_2120626162_o

We have extended our trip to southern waters this year so if you fancy having a go at landing a Shark get in touch! Prices of all our trips (except Shark trips) are staying the same as 2015 this year. They are as follows:- Full boat upto 10hrs Wreck fishing (upto 30 miles from Pwllheli)upto 10 anglers £750, individual trips £75pp. For further away Wrecks a small additional fee may be charged to cover the extra fuel. Full boat upto 9hrs Bass fishing trip upto 10 anglers £700 or £70 as an individual. Full boat upto 9hrs Bardsey Island trip upto 10 anglers £650 or £65 as an individual.

Full boat upto 8hrs Tope/Bream fishing upto 10 anglers £500 or £50 as an individual. Full boat upto 8hrs General fishing upto 10 anglers £450 or £45 as an individual. Shark fishing prices vary depending on where we sail from etc so contact us for prices. We can take upto 12 anglers but price is then based on individual prices. We also run ‘Prestige trips’ where we have groups of individuals that would rather pay extra and have less people on the boat so they have more space to fish, please contact use for available dates and prices. We also reserve the right to increase our prices during the year if fuel prices increase. Deposits need to be paid within 7 days of booking your trip to secure your booking, the balance is then to be paid on the day of the trip. If you cancel your trip within 2 weeks of the trip then your deposit will be lost unless I/you can find someone to replace you. Deposits are £150 for full boat booking, £20 for individual trips. May I take this opportunity to thank all my customers for your support and I look forward to seeing you all again for some awesome fishing in 2016!!

2015 season

Share Button

Hi Guys,

Here we are with the 2015 season about to start,and the arrival of the new boat around the corner!! We are getting a brand new 10m Cougar catamaran built to my design layout. She will have twin 300hp yamaha outboards which we hope will give a cruising speed of over 25knts!! This will not just drastically cut down the time travelling to the marks but will open up a whole new area for us to explore as it will now be viable within a days travel.The fishing in 2014 was great, but i just cant wait to see what 2015 brings when we can explore new wrecks and try new marks that werent viable until now!! Lets all cross fingers for another year of great weather aswell!! In 2014 the reefs Of the Peninsula produced fantastic days of sport with so many different species which shows a healthy marine environment which has been sustainably fished year after year! With huge catches of pollack upto 9ibs and good numbers of coalie upto 4ibs!There were plenty of wrasse around with good numbers of Coockoo’s and Ballans around the isle!! The wrecks fished well, again some great fish with good numbers of pollack to 17ibs, cod to over 9ibs and good sizes of ling and coalie. We had Black Bream upto 2.5ibs, good nuimbers of Tope and the best for 2014 was 62ibs but had many in the high 50ibs and a couple more just over 60ibs!!We’ve seen some nice Bass again but due to a change in the weather, most of the trips were cancelled, meaning there should be better numbers for this year!!We had an excellent couple of 2 day wrecking trips across the water to sample some of the excellent Irish atmosphere and may have had a couple’a pints of the black stuff!!!The fishing on those trips can also be special as it gives plenty of time to check out wrecks that are hardly ever fished! If you fancy some of this, please get in touch to book your places! As for our shark fishing trips, well 2014 again produced some lovely fish (blues) to over 150ibs !! We spent a week using Fishguard as our base, then heading down off St Davids head to fish for the Blue’s/ Porgies and as we found out again in 2014 the sharks are abundant in that area! (see the pics in Gallery). Haf-Aled III has been a fantastic boat for the last 7yrs and we hope the new owners get as much pleaseure as i did from her!! The new 10m Cougar Catamaran ‘Haf-Aled’ will be with us in April,and will be ready for the 2015 season!!!She will be a top of the range charter boat which will boast loads of deck space, sheltered seating, toilet and again easy step on/off access. I have opened my diary for 2015, bookings have gone mad with all weekends for 2015 booked up, although there are a couple of spaces on a few ‘individual’ weekend trips on a couple of weekends,there are also still a few midweek dates available for both full boat/individual charters, so please hurry and secure your bookings for some more fantastic fishing with North Wales Leading Charter Boat !

We are also able to offer trips based at Nefyn on the north side of the Llyn Peninsula as well as from Pwllheli. These trips will be offered on inshore/Bardsey trips during periods of Southerly winds, when sailing from Pwllheli would not be possible, giving you the angler a better chance of getting out when your trip would otherwise be cancelled. This will also allow us to offer trips at reduced rates and shorter steaming times!!

Prices for 2015 sailing from Pwllheli are based on 10 anglers, however having the new boat with twice as much deck space as Haf-Aled III will allow us to be able to take groups upto 12 people in comfort, prices on groups of more than 10 will then be based on an individual price though, they are as follows:- Full boat charter upto 10hrs and upto 10 anglers, wrecking trip £750, or £75 as an individual (upto 30 miles from port)for further wrecks a small additional fee may be added to cover fuel. Full boat charter upto 10 anglers 9hr Bass trip £700, or £70 as an individual. Full boat upto 10 anglers 8 hr Tope/Bream trip £500, or £50 as an individual. Full boat charter upto 9 hr Bardsey isle trip upto 10 anglers £650, or £65 as an individual. Full boat charter upto 8hr General(Huss/Rays) trip£450, or £45 as an individual. When the new boat arrives it will give you the angler much more fishing time for no extra cost!!. If sailing from Nefyn deduct £50 from each full boat charter or £5 from individual prices on the Bass, Bardasey and Wrecking trips. A deposit of £150 for a full boat booking or £10 per person for Tope/Bream or general fishing and £200 for Wrecking/bass trips or £20 person for indivuals, which must be sent to me within 7 days of booking to secure the places. We also reserve the right to increase these prices if fuel prices go up again during the season.

We have also been successfully running what i describe as ‘Prestige’ individual trips together for small numbers of people wanting more space on the boat and that are willing to pay a bit extra for the privelage. You can either ring me or email me for more details if you are interested. They are mostly for 6 to 8 anglers and on weekends, however i also have a few midweek dates available through 2015. Once the new boat arrives this will be mostly based on 8 anglers as there will be much more deck space and will work out much cheaper for you the angler! We have had great feedback on all these trips the last couple of seasons and now have a good number of people who regularly take part on these ‘special’ days! so i can honestly say they have been a huge success with the anglers! We have also got many excited anglers who are eager to fish on the new boat!

Thank you all very much for your support through the yrs, and i will look forward to seeing you all again soon for some more excellent fishing through 2015 aboard the new Haf-Aled roll on May!!!

For any more info just pick up the phone or e-mail us, cheers guys! Tight lines, jason
