Another possible British record to add to the monster Black Goby Dan had in February. I had this mega Shanny in Old Portsmouth on a section of Gulp Sandworm. Photo doesn't do it justice - it was huge! (it went back)
We got out in the boat yesterday and although big tides, managed to flex the LRF gear briefly at slack tide. An inshore wreck was home to a shoal of decent Scad (Horse Mackerel) so we had a blast with small metal jigs. Aji-tastic!
Spending a few weeks away from the great British summer with my better half has traditionally been a fishing free affair. After all, keeping the 'boss' happy is the key to earning a few fishing tokens somewhere down the line and us anglers are nothing if not good at thinking ahead. Lure fishing for me and more specifically LRF though has now meant that the earning of 'fishing tokens' (on holiday at least) has been put on hold and I can sneak out for an hours fishing wherever in the world my good lady has been good enough to book up - provided there is a bit of water nearby. So with a borrowed Sonik 3-10g travel rod, a handful of lures / soft-baits and a bit of terminal tackle I tried my best to find a foreign fish or two in Northern Italy More
My first lure caught Mullet. Saw a shoal feeding at the base of a flood drain, free-lined an artificial worm back to them and wallop, we were on! Lure was half a Lip Ripperz Trout Wormz dipped in Jacks LRF Special Sauce
