The sea was calming off nicely after a good blow last weekend, so Shaun and I spent Tuesday evening at Colwyn Bay Arches. The tide was only quite small and hadn't reached the wall yet, so being impatient sods we started off on the beach!
Lots of whiting bites straight away, first cast was a treble-shot of good fish up to around a pound, as was the second. As the tide pushed us back on to the promenade it was non-stop action. A lot of smaller fish but with the odd better specimen thrown in too.
Shaun had a rockling and a pouting to break the whiting monotony, and I had yet another treble that included a small flounder.
No massive fish to report but the sport was fast and furious. Shaun told me he lost count early on in the session at 60 fish, and I only reeled in a blank rig twice all evening so we must have had around 150-200 fish between us! Baits were a mix of frozen lug, squid, and mackerel. The rigs were either 2 or 3 hook clipped paternosters.
With such easy fishing around, if you just want to get out and catch fish there really is no better place than the North Wales coast!
