Very happy with this one. Beautiful Tub Gurnard caught on LRF tactics – red Gulp Sandworm fished dropshot. Probably a shore PB for me and my 20th lure caught species of 2012. Hooked no more than 10ft from my rod tip in shallow water. Stunning looking fish.
Was playing around with a few new items yesterday and had this small Black Bream on an Ima Shirasu Snake in Solid Red colour. Nice action when fished dropshot. Image taken from GoPro video footage
A beautiful golden colour Ballan Wrasse caught on an Ima Trilobite fished dropshot
Enjoyable day in Portsmouth light rock fishing. Huge amount of Shanny on the split shot rig, plus some small wrasse. Finished with some dropshot action chasing Scorpions. Non-stop fun!

I am in limbo a bit at the moment. After some good Plaice fishing a few weeks ago I find April a funny month to fish on the boat so I often find myself fishing without any real aim or target. This is not a problem, provided I am fishing I am happy but a few very quiet sessions do knock the confidence a bit and no more so than when I am lure fishing. Not that it is all bad, we have seen a few fish on the boat and maybe more importantly we are fine tuning how to present certain lures in certain ways from a boat in readiness for some more productive fishing. Even so, its nice to get a take and put a bend in the rod so we have been fishing some inshore marks where there is always a variety of fish to catch.
One of the better Wrasse so far on the boat fell to Pete on an X-layer and gave a good account of itself on light tackle.
A common sight. Small Pollack caught at night. This one on a couple of Power Isome fished wacky on the dropshot
