pollack

Pollack are one of the core target species of LRF in the British Isles. Member of the cod family, most of the Pollack we catch are around one or two pounds in weight, but much bigger specimens do turn up from time to time – normally in the colder months. Pollack can be caught on a broad range of lures and techniques, but they are especially susceptible to sink-and-draw methods with metals and paddletails.

Night Games at West Bay

Aji Ringer Shad Flounder

Saturday night saw me hatching a plan to administer a Flounder smackdown. Wedged between my Lulworth wrasse-a-thon in the morning and the Bristol BLAC qualifier the next day, I settled on West Bay, in Dorset. Read more

LRF Night Game

LRF Scorpion at Night

Drove down to Portsmouth last night to catch up with Dan and Chris. Would have been rude not to do a little Night Game.

Rainy night but wind was much lower than forecast. Fairly pleasant. 6 species in total. Bonus was a little Bass that beat the Pollack to a white Aqua Straight OTD.

As ever, find floodlights for the most fun.

Strong easterly winds hampered everyone’s progress the whole weekend but did nothing to dampen everyone’s enthusiasm. Alderney has a lot to offer, even in tough conditions. Read more

Cornish Lure Festival 2014

Species Hunt Winners

It’s a week since the kick off of the 2014 Cornish Lure Festival and I have to say I’m not sure I’ve recovered yet – it was EPIC

After entering the Species Hunt competition for the first time last year, I’d managed to pass on my enthusiasm for the event to mates, Dan and Chris. Estelle enjoyed last year, even as a non-fisher, and was along for the ride again too. So with a rough plan built around the far from perfect forecast, and the two productive marks I’d garnered last year, we all met up in deepest, darkest Cornwall. Exciting! Read more
