Mega day afloat on the good ship Drifter. We set out without a plan, hoping the birds would help us out. It was beautifully calm when we set off a little after 8am. We didn’t need to go far! Read more
Dan Sissons with a nice little Black Bream tempted by red Marukyu Isome fished dropshot.
I’ve somehow beautifully avoided Weevers until now. But very pleased to tick off the Lesser Weever on this year’s species list. Numero 20 in fact. Lure was an XL Marukyu Isome fished on a 10g jighead on the drift.
Watch out youngsters (and not so youngsters) – these are poisonous! Not worthy of abuse, but watch yourselves and go careful.
I’ve said it before but worth repeating, I think light rock fishing gear is perfect for fun fishing on your summer holidays.
Myself and the good lady headed off to Rhodes in Greece for a week and of course I packed some LRF equipment – mainly Reins lures and a pack of Isome. Read more
Black Bream caught on a Cultiva metal micro jig
Not an unusual fish for most LRF anglers but this one (and a few others) was noteworthy because it was caught in 10m of water from the boat. An scaled up split shot rig (5g) was used to present an Ecogear Aqua Straight.
Not strictly an LRF catch but an interesting capture none-the-less. I had this Thornback Ray on a 6-inch Berkley Gulp Sandworm as we drifted for Plaice. He nailed it good and proper. Just shows you every fish is a predator. Love this stuff!
