Very interested to hear Dave Barham of Boat Fishing Magazine talking enthusiastically about LRF gear for use on the boat. I had heard about its use in the recent species tournament in Weymouth from another source and this confirms it. Exciting times!
Dan with a clonking great wrasse caught unexpectedly on a Daiwa micro jig from the boat. We had to leave our buoy and chase after it. Great fun!
Has this been the windiest year ever? It certainly seems that way to me and lots of fishing plans have fallen by the wayside as we simply could not get out in the boat.

Even the humble Pouting can prove sporting on appropriate gear. Pout will attack suitably sized jigs like the Quantum Mahi and Bass Pro XPS seen here
Fished a very famous south coast mark at the weekend. Unsurprisingly the structure was holding Bass. Dan had this one on LRF gear
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!
