corkwing wrasse

The Corkwing Wrasse is a staple of summertime LRF. One of the most colourful fish in British waters. Their heads are often adorned with turquiose and orange stripes, setting them apart from the other wrasse species. At certain times of the year they can shoal up in vast numbers giving the LRF angler almost unlimited sport. Most often, but not exclusively, Corkwing can be successfully caught using artificial worms fished on a split shot rig, small jighead or dropshot.

Lure Heaven UK Species Hunt

Summer appears to be slipping away on the south coast, so I thought I better put in some effort for the Lure Heaven UK species hunt. Luckily the Corkwing are still in residence at pretty much every seaward mark we fish in Portsmouth - they won't be for too much longer. Then a change of mark presented me with seemingly a sea of Black Goby but I did fluke out my first Dragonet of the year - good for the comp and my yearly species tally.
