The Anglesey coastline is littered with shipwrecks with a reputation for harbouring all kinds of sea creatures. You can find tope up to 80 pounds in weight, big tub gurnard, specimen pollack, bull huss, cod and conger eel. Not forgetting the sea bass.
But fishing them is a real test of local knowledge and seamanship. If there are fish out there, the experienced skippers of Starida Sea Services
will find them. Indeed, Stan Zalot of Starida was once voted, “Skipper of the Month” by Sea Angler magazine.
These days Stan himself sticks mainly to pleasure cruises to nearby Puffin Island with its seabirds and seals
, sometimes with a little mackerel fishing thrown in. It’s perfect for beginners of all ages to catch enough for a barbecue.
