At Last - Good Signs Offshore

A weather window today allowed another foray to visit some offshore wrecks. Even in Conwy Bay the signs were there, hinting towards a big change in the water temperature, since a fortnight ago. Temperature inshore had increased from 4.7 to 8.7 degrees! Offshore the difference was less marked, rising from 6.7 to 7.4 degrees. Doesn't seem like much, but enough to put the pollack back on the feed. We had about 40 pollack to 7lb. Not startling fishing but at least the season seems to have finally started. Pollack fell mainly to rhubarb and custard 4-6" sidewinders.

Another charter boat from Conwy also had plenty of whiting, dabs and dogfish inshore on Saturday.

I have room on both Saturday (27th April) and Sunday (28th April) on 8 hour inshore fishing trips if anyone would like to book.
