Light Rock Fishing in Rhodes

I've said it before but worth repeating, I think light rock fishing gear is perfect for fun fishing on your summer holidays.

Myself and the good lady headed off to Rhodes in Greece for a week and of course I packed some LRF equipment - mainly Reins lures and a pack of Isome. Read more

Thin Lipped Mullet on LRF Tackle

During our Dorset recce, Dan and I stopped off in Weymouth Harbour for a quick hour long session. We were expecting the usuals but instead found a load of mullet, clearly feeding - rare! Read more

35 Pound Smelt

Perhaps not the most economical fish of the year. After not finding the Bass this weekend all I had to show for £35 of diesel was 5 Sand Smelt. Although another lure caught species for the 2013 tally.

LRF Plaice Kicks Off 2013

Plaice on Jig Head
Plaice dominate the local boat fishing at this time of year and traditionally herald the start of spring. Of course this year has been slightly different, what with winter out-staying its welcome. But rather surprisingly, the Plaice have been showing in very good numbers out of Southsea and Hayling Island beaches when the weather has actually allowed boats to get out. With some good numbers of fish being caught at some old traditional venues that have been poor for several years. The bonus being these marks are right on my sea-door-step and very lure friendly, so when the weather obliged last weekend we got old Drifter afloat and set about finding some fish. 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

LRF St Malo

Managed a half-hearted LRF session in St Malo before catching the ferry back to Portsmouth. Tide and temperature were not on my side but I was determined to catch a fish, so set my sights high with a goby. Job done. Pretty ordinary Black Goby, but a great backdrop. Looking forward to returning one day for a proper go at it - look at all that structure!
