Weymouth Christmas LRF Species Hunt

Weymouth Christmas LRF Species Hunt

Hats off to Andy Mytton for a first class LRF competition and meet-up, drawing in anglers from all over the country. Huge turn-out for any time of year (I think it was 34), but for December, with 40mph winds roaring away it was exceptional. Lots and lots of friendly faces, plus a few new to the saltwater side of light lure. Everyone appeared to be having fun. Read more

Sand Goby

Sand Goby Picture

In the depths of dark December, there was no real expectation to add to my yearly species tally, but Weymouth delivered a pretty little Sand Goby as its Christmas present to me. Just shows you, you just need to get out there and fish!

Hope these pictures may help someone with identifying Sand Gobies.

41cm 3lb 2oz Perch

3lb 2oz Canal Perch

Over the moon! Certainly the longest Perch I’ve had out the Kennet & Avon Canal. 41cm to the fork. 3lb 2oz. In beautiful condition. Where has she been hiding all this time?!

Lure was the HTO Flail. This time in orange. An active decision on colour after seeing how well Dan did on worm imitations the week before.

Chasing Perch & Pike

40cm Perch

With the weather all over the place in recent weeks it’s been frustrating trying to find any consistency in catches. Some locations have offered up huge shoals of smaller Perch, but until today the bigger 30+ fish have been few and far between. Read more

Horse Mackerel at Weymouth

Great little session with Chris Wheeler in Weymouth on Saturday night. Wind dropped away to nothing for a couple of hours around midnight and we were able to fish delicate Aji-type lures on jigheads, using the curve fall method, on-the-drop (OTD). We picked up the desired Horse Mackerel (Scad), Mackerel and some decent sized Pollack, plus the odd tiny Whiting caught well off the bottom. Really enjoyed it.

Light Rock Fishing in Skiathos

Cleaver Wrasse

Back from our summer holiday in the Greek Isles and the fishing was as fruitful as always. It was my first time to Skiathos but finding fish was easy. They were everywhere! Read more
