black goby

The Black Goby is the most common of the goby species we frequently come across, here on the south coast. While fairly commonplace and drab looking, the Black Goby has saved many a blank. Normally targeted with artificial worm close to the sea bed. Generally found near mud, the Black Goby can live in a burrow and consequently small bites that end in a snag, are often caused by these fish retreating back into their homes.

LRF Night Game

LRF Scorpion at Night

Drove down to Portsmouth last night to catch up with Dan and Chris. Would have been rude not to do a little Night Game.

Rainy night but wind was much lower than forecast. Fairly pleasant. 6 species in total. Bonus was a little Bass that beat the Pollack to a white Aqua Straight OTD.

As ever, find floodlights for the most fun.

Spanish LRF

LRF Mum

Back from a top week in Spain visiting my mum. It was minging hot, so snorkelling was mostly the preferred pastime but I did get to flex the travel rod here and there, trying to notch up the species count. Read more
