Sponsored Boat Fishing event

As boat anglers I think it is fair to say, that the vast majority of us, charter skippers and pleasure skippers alike, set sail having taken all precautions, safety checks, courses etc possible. Along with ensuring our boats are fully equipped and compliant with all the safety equipment necessary for a safe and risk free day afloat.

Despite having taken every precaution necessary, sometimes things go wrong. The weather turns unpredictably dangerous, someone is injured, or something happens to our vessel that requires immediate attention.

Who do we turn to?

 

I donít think itís too presumptuous of me to say that we all set sail safe in the knowledge that a watchful eye and ear is around in the form of the local coastguard and lifeboat stations. Heaven forbid that anyone reading this should ever require the assistance of the local RNLI, but at the end of the day they are there should we need them. Come rain, shine or gale force winds and in weather that most of us often dismiss as being miserable and unappealing these individuals set sail to the assistance of the unfortunate sailor and angler.
   
On 06th July 2007, anglers aboard charter boats My Way and Spindrift will be taking part in a sponsored fishing event in aid of Holyhead and Trearddur Bay lifeboat appeal. The anglers involved are being sponsored to catch and release more fish in the day than the opposing boat. With each angler agreeing to a minimum of £100 sponsorship each, and the charter boats free of charge, it is hoped that a minimum of £2000 will be raised by the event, which is likely to become and annual bash. Sailing from Holyhead Marina at 9am, the boats will be returning to the Marina at around 5.pm.Afterwhich there will be an official presentation to RNLI personnel in front of Holyhead Lifeboat Station.
   

Sponsored fishing although appealing, may lack a little in the fun stakes; which is why, as part of the event the anglers along with Gareth and myself have agreed to dress as pirates for the full 8hrs. Now I donít necessarily see myself as Captain Jack Sparrow, however I can certainly see Gareth as Captain Pugwash!

Sponsors and donations are being sought to help increase the total amount of cash raised on the day. If you would like to donate, however small please send a cheque or postal order made payable to ĎAnglesey Boat Festival, to the following address:
   

Gethyn Owen, GO Angling Charter Services, Dalmuir, Chapel Street, Menai Bridge, Anglesey LL59 5HW.

  09th August 2006 Spindrift has now joined the UK Shark tagging program
   
  .  
  13th June 2006 The first week of June started off pretty good tope up to 30lb plenty of smooth hound uptiding with peeler crab ,one of the biggest weighing 22lb 12oz was caught by tackle shop owner Mark of winnies worms in Holyhead .

We fished one wreck 12 miles out only had 1 tope but plenty of whiting and some codling up to 4lb . The mackerel and pollack fishing has slowed down off the stacks but had some 5-6lb pollack on the back of the breakwater drifting with live sand eels .

We've had wrasse up to 3lb when we had rag on board, only had 1 spurdog this week they seem to have disappeared for the time being I hope .

I would like to thank Brian's father for the bottle of whiskey at the end of the trip

     
  14th May 2006
April's fishing started off well, managed to get to the wrecks for the first time this year on Friday 21st . There were plenty of spurdog up to 23lb and we also had 4 tope up to about 18lb .

Sunday 23rd too much of a swell to get round the stacks so ended up going NW to the separation zone managed to anchor right on a sandbank, fishing very slow to start with then we hit the spurdog, 2 tope and lot's of  good huss up to 14lb . Rest of April general fishing for doggies ,huss  and the occasional codling .

 

Mays fishing started slow fished the wrecks a few spurdogs and small tope, but on Saturday 6th we had 14 stone of huss , the pollack and mackerel have started to come in now too on the stacks also caught a couple of cuckoo wrasse
