Hi I know what you mean, there's always somewhere fishable if you give it some thought. Did you ever try Porth Ysgo, on the south side? Interesting place, I've had sea-trout there before now. That's a good spot in a north-easterly. I don't know for sure when I'll next be down, there's nothing planne...

Hi
I was in Cemaes on saturday night and it would have been pretty much unfishable up there, I'm amazed you did as well as you did, kinda thought you'd be blown off the beach! Goes to show, if you don't go you'll never know. Good work in those conditions!
cheers

Hi guys I guess this is a variant on what the French call a "buldo mer" - a floating rubber bullet-shaped affair which gives you casting weight. I've used them to good effect before now. I'm sure I saw them on sale here in UK not long ago, might be worth asking round the tackle shops. Another option...
