ballan wrasse

Ballan Wrasse are one of my favourite species of fish to target on the lure. The Ballan Wrasse is a real thug and bigger specimens will test your tackle and skill to the limit. They come in a huge array of beautiful colours – from brown to red, to green, to gold. Most often found around rock and weed, they can however turn up almost anywhere there is some structure for them to inhabit. Because of their environment we most often use weedless techniques to target Ballan Wrasse, limiting the odds of us getting snagged in their surroundings.

Found some good fun out on the boat. With small neap tides and light winds in the morning we were able to fish LRF tackle both at anchor and on the drift. Read more

LRF Beach Wrasse

I seem to have had a run of wrasse lately, however this one came off a shingle beach within 4m of the high tide mark. Makes you think

Enjoyable day in Portsmouth light rock fishing. Huge amount of Shanny on the split shot rig, plus some small wrasse. Finished with some dropshot action chasing Scorpions. Non-stop fun!
