Sanibel Lighthouse, Florida

Florida Pompano

Myself, Paul Fenech and Paul Dennis shared a really enjoyable afternoon on Sanibel Island. After acquiring our saltwater licenses we went exploring and ended up at Sanibel Lighthouse – an angling spot of some fame as it turns out. However, as luck would have it we found ourselves there on Mothers Day and the place was pretty packed with beachgoers. It didn’t take long to see why. Read more

Night Game Poole Quay

Pollack on Flail

A 90 minute Night Game session at Poole Quay resulted in some good fun with the local Pollack population. All fish were caught in the top third of the water column. A couple of big Smelt even managed to inhale the size 8.

Best of all, and what really gave me payback for braving the drizzle was witnessing ragworm spawning on the surface. I’ve only ever seen this once before and never as clearly as this. Couldn’t understand why they weren’t getting smashed by the Pollack.

April Wrasse Fishing

Dorset Ballan Wrasse

Enjoyable day on the Dorset coast with Dan and Chris. While the wrasse fishing is still only a fraction of what it will be in the next couple of months, it still felt rewarding. Each of us caught. Creature baits were the key. Crystal clear water conditions. You can’t beat the ‘tonk’ of a bite from a Ballan Wrasse. I’m an addict!

Perch on HTO Creatures

Perch on Orange HTO Bug-ga

With an icy cold wind chilling the canal I thought the Perch might need a bigger meal to get them moving today. So I spent the afternoon with HTO’s creature baits – the Bug-ga and the Paddle Bug. Read more
