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
Archive of all LRF fish caught in the month of February.
Braved the extreme cold today for 30 minutes while visiting Newbury. Wasn't hopeful but I was gagging to try out some of my new lures. I fished a 3" Reins Bubbling Shad in Marble Chart Orange, Texas with a 3.5g brass cone weight. Only managed a dozen casts before my hands froze but got a couple of follows from a decent trout and landed this little Pike. Great fun on the LRF gear. I will be back!
Managed a half-hearted LRF session in St Malo before catching the ferry back to Portsmouth. Tide and temperature were not on my side but I was determined to catch a fish, so set my sights high with a goby. Job done. Pretty ordinary Black Goby, but a great backdrop. Looking forward to returning one day for a proper go at it - look at all that structure!
