Rhyl Charter - Suveran - 21st july 2006

July 21st, 2006 · No Comments

Venue - Rhyl
Duration - 8 hrs
Bait: Lug, Mackerel, Squid
Boat - Suveran
Skipper - Simon Parry

Fished a 8 hr trip out of Rhyl on Simon Parry’s Suveran.

For Sinbad, it had been a lifetime of trying.
Having come close on many occasions, was today going to be the day he finally broke his Tope duck??

It wasn’t a huge tide today, so the plan was to venture out a good distance to one of Simons deep water marks. General fishing and Tope were all a possibility.
We headed out 10 miles towards the Douglas platform.

We passed the recently retired Peter Campini who seems to be skippering Olivia Jeanne as a means of escaping from the rigors of skippering Striker! Go figure!!!!!!
The net was out and they were into some big Gurnards as we passed.

At the mark, we put down some rotting chum that Simon had prepared in advance. There were loads of monster Mackerel about and we had enough bait for the day within 5 minutes. The biggest of the bunch went straight into my cool box to keep me in fish suppers for the next week.

Some of us put down some big fish baits, others tried smaller baits for a spot of general fishing and to rack up the species count.

Fishing was frantic from the off. Al’s barbeque was officially back on when he landed this nice Tub Gurnard.

Not so great with a pasta salad, but Al was still happy to increase his species tally with a Scad.

After a patient wait, the big baits started paying dividends………..

Desperate to shrug his nickname of ‘Del the dab’, Del’s attention was caught when, after a fairly vague bite, the slack line indicated that he was into a big fish. His Conolon started to pay back the investment………

Del kept his head and after 5 minutes of giving and taking line, he caught sight of this beauty!!!

Result was a nice 20lb Tope.

Shortly after, I had a personal best. A 10lb Bull Huss.

On the other side of the boat, Lee had been into fish from the off. After switching to a big hook he soon had a big knock. He managed to land a good Thornie of about 8lb.

Having observed the increasing action, Sinbad had been waiting patiently. Still dreaming of that elusive Tope……….
All of a sudden, his Abu 7000 started screaming……………….

Tope definately on!!!!!!!!!

It all got a bit tense. Sinbad wanted this so much that the whole boat were willing him on.
Cool as a cucumber, he eventually fulfilled his dream.
A Tope estimated at 36lbs!

The good news for me is that now he has finally bagged a Tope, he may well stop harping on about his (then) Welsh record Bull Huss of 18lb.
Bad news is that I will have to listen to ‘The Tope Story’ everyday for years to come!!!!!!

After all this non-stop action, Wilbur felt the need for a swift 40 winks.

With just minutes to spare from us heading home, Del (the Tope) had a nice run.
His patience had paid off yet again when a conger hit the surface.

Simon confirmed the weight at 15lb.

A great fish that capped a wonderful day perfectly.

In all, the species caught were…….
Mackerel, Scad, Whiting, Pouting, Dabs, Poor Cod, Red Gurnard, Tub Gurnard, Dogfish, Bull Huss, Tope, Thornback Ray, Conger Eel.

Thank you to Simon who had clearly put thought and preparation into todays charter.

We’ll be back!!!
