Plaice, Plastic… Perfect

Jighead Caught Plaice

As we fast approach May we are finally getting April's fishing. This time last year I had boated a few Bream and registered several more species but whether it's from boat or shore, this year has been tough. The bonus of not having anything silver to fish for yet is that the Plaice have demanded more attention when boat fishing and with the right set-up are entirely target-able with plastics. Last Sunday the weather gave us a window to try Hayling Bay again. 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

Lure Caught Gurnard

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.

Record Shanny?

Another possible British record to add to the monster Black Goby Dan had in February. I had this mega Shanny in Old Portsmouth on a section of Gulp Sandworm. Photo doesn't do it justice - it was huge! (it went back)
