Llandudno Pier - 18th December 2009
Venue - Llandudno Pier
Tide - Low to High
Time - Night
Bait: Frozen Lug
Another freezing cold Friday night, another trip onto the Magical Llandudno Pier!
I know I go on about it, but fishing this venue in the dark never fails to impress.
With Llandudno's tasteful promenade as a backdrop, it doesn't get much better than this.
Sheltering from the biting NW wind, I set up on the shore side of the bar.
Initially, the fishing was slow.
A lone Poor Cod was all I had to show for the first hour.
Next to me, Seajunky was faring better with a small Codling.
As the tide started to flood, things got a bit better with a steady stream of Whiting, the odd Doggie and a Dab or 2.
As well as some Codling and Whiting, Clueless too was getting his fair share of the Dab action.
By now, so was I!
Putting us all to shame, as usual, Simon had Dabs, Whiting, Doggies and Codling accounted for.
By the Cafe, the rest of the lads were fairing slightly better. Similar species, but a few more of them.
As high water approached, it went dead. Just the odd knock and the very occasional Whiting still showing.
Time to pull up the bait trap.
Lots of Velvet Swimmers, a few small Poor Cod and 3 half decent Whiting had taken a fancy to the Sardine bait. As well as a very suspicious rod tip bell bite indicator!
Surely a Seajunky/Clueless Too wind up!
It was great to see a few familiar faces and also to meet up with Lee for the first time.
I'm looking forward to the post Christmas session here on the 29th.
Clueless Too threw down a gauntlet and consequently, the next meet will see a friendly challenge.
It's the Pier vs The Mersey charter.
Details to follow!!!!!!!
To cap another amazing night, the snow arrived just as we were packing up.
