Mixed Light Boat Fishing

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 Plaice Kicks Off 2013

Plaice on Jig Head
Plaice dominate the local boat fishing at this time of year and traditionally herald the start of spring. Of course this year has been slightly different, what with winter out-staying its welcome. But rather surprisingly, the Plaice have been showing in very good numbers out of Southsea and Hayling Island beaches when the weather has actually allowed boats to get out. With some good numbers of fish being caught at some old traditional venues that have been poor for several years. The bonus being these marks are right on my sea-door-step and very lure friendly, so when the weather obliged last weekend we got old Drifter afloat and set about finding some fish. Read more

Plaice on Lures

Gone are the days we dreamed whether Plaice could be caught on lures. I'm pleased to say this is the third season we've intentionally targeted and succeeded in catching Plaice on lures. Read more

Autumn Bassing

Small Boat Bass

As the heady days of summer disappear so does my late evenings spent wandering the shore looking for a Bass or two. There are still Bass to be caught from the beaches this time of year but to really get amongst a few fish, a boat is needed to get offshore a few miles and look for the shoals of Bass that are starting to feed up for winter. On a recent trip out we headed to some sand banks where we know the baitfish hang out this time of year and watched the fish-finder intently looking for the screen to show mid water clouds of prey that would give away the predators location.

Cuttlefish on Jig

Seems to be a lot of small Cuttlefish around at the moment. After last week's cuttlefish attacks, this week we were able to pull a couple out on the squid jigs from the boat. Not really LRF but good fun on the LRF rods
