Once you’ve found them Lesser Weever are pretty easy to catch. Aggressive little things. They very much like movement and will come way off the bottom to hit a moving lure. Here, a natural coloured Knight Worm. Please be careful. They’re highly venomous.

Great little session with Chris Wheeler in Weymouth on Saturday night. Wind dropped away to nothing for a couple of hours around midnight and we were able to fish delicate Aji-type lures on jigheads, using the curve fall method, on-the-drop (OTD). We picked up the desired Horse Mackerel (Scad), Mackerel and some decent sized Pollack, plus the odd tiny Whiting caught well off the bottom. Really enjoyed it.
