Hungry little Pout caught on an Ecogear Swim Shrimp 4" fished on an 7g Illex Gambit Straight Jighead - nice set-up this one
I am in limbo a bit at the moment. After some good Plaice fishing a few weeks ago I find April a funny month to fish on the boat so I often find myself fishing without any real aim or target. This is not a problem, provided I am fishing I am happy but a few very quiet sessions do knock the confidence a bit and no more so than when I am lure fishing. Not that it is all bad, we have seen a few fish on the boat and maybe more importantly we are fine tuning how to present certain lures in certain ways from a boat in readiness for some more productive fishing. Even so, its nice to get a take and put a bend in the rod so we have been fishing some inshore marks where there is always a variety of fish to catch.
One of the better Wrasse so far on the boat fell to Pete on an X-layer and gave a good account of itself on light tackle.
