Duration - 7 hrs
Bait: Frozen Lug, Fresh Mackerel, Frozen Squid, Peeler Crab
Boat - Suveran II

With Simon out of action (get well soon!!!!), Tony was skippering Suveran II today.
Our plans were to head out and have a Tope session and finish off later in the day in search of a Bass or two.

Suveran II - 14th July 2008

Last night’s forcast was promising, but by 11am this morning the pundits were predicting a more troublesome westerly component.
We set sail for the wind farm and it soon became apparant that it was choppy out there. So much so that Plan A was abandoned in favour of Plan B.
Plan B was to head westwards towards Llandudno Bay.
Sailing into the wind, the ride was bumpy to say the least. Tony opened up Suveran II’s twin engines and cruising at 15 knots made things slightly more comfortable.
We arrived in Llandudno and dropped anchor.

Despite the shelter offered from The Great Orme, it was still lumpy. It was at this point that we were happy to have the stability of a Catamarran to make things more bearable.

The fishing was brisk from the off. Whiting and Doggies were here in abundance.
Various tactics and baits were used, but it was just the same two species taking everything.

One casualty to the wind was Paul’s Baseball Cap. A gust caught it’s peak and sent it flying, never to be seen again into the Irish Sea.
Bizzarely, 20mins later Al felt a bit resistance on a retrieve and lo and behold, Pauls Cap broke the surface!!!!!!!

With no further species taking the bait we decided to head over to the Little Orme and try for some Pollock on the drift.

The wind decided to give us a break and all of a sudden we could have been on a Greek Island pleasure cruise.

To say it was spectacular was an understatement.

Seeing aspects of the Little Orme that are hidden from most peoples view made the trip for me.

The sheer drama of the headland was spectacular!

The birdlife was amazing to witness and with the sun making a timely first appearance of the day, it made for a memory that will be hard to forget.

On the fish front however, apart from James’s Launce, there was not much else to report.

Next destination was Llandulas. With fresh Peeler Crab courtesy of Llandudno Pier Tackle shop, Bass was the target species.
A few bites kept spirits up but it wasn’t to be.

Final stop of the day was to be the Smoothound mark back in Rhyl.
Onroute however, an eagle eyed Sinbad spotted something floating on the still choppy water.
Tony changed course to investigate.
Worryingly, it turned out to be an empty Kayak.

We managed to lift the vessel onboard and Tony informed the coastguard.

The Rhyl ILB was launched and retrieved the Kayak.

They set about patrolling the area and were soon joined by Lil Cunningham.

Suveran II - 14th July 2008

Suveran II was stood down by the coastguard and we headed back into Rhyl harbour leaving both Rhyl lifeboats continuing their search towards Towyn and possibly beyond.

We never got to fish the Smoothound mark. Understandably, events had overtaken us and time had disappeared in the all to familiar blink of an eye.

I just hope that whoever owns that Kayak is able to read this report.

Happy Days!!!!!! (hopefully)
