A few weeks back I decided to explore the benefits of Japanese style worm hooks and purchased a few examples from Decoy, Gamakatsu and VMC. Read more
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!
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.
I like the end of the summer season. Fish species seem to turn on in waves. If last week was boom time for Cuttlefish, this week was peak for Corkwing Wrasse. There were dozens feeding at both the marks we fished and very eager to take an artificial worm. Such was the ferocity of the Corkwing it was nearly impossible to catch anything else with this tactic
Made the drive to Plymouth well worth it. First lure caught Flounder taken on a dropshot worm fished wacky
Little Rock Goby dude caught on Bloody Red Gulp Sandworm 4″
