Cuckoo Wrasse from shore

With the Cornish Lure Festival cancelled for 2017, Dan, Chris and myself decided to fish it anyway! And so we began our lure-only species hunt around Cornwall for a few days. Read more

LRF Poole Party

Green & Gold Wrasse

Found myself in Dorset for a few days and managed three micro sessions down at Poole Quay. Read more

LRF Really Getting Going

Corkwing on HTO Knight Worm

Really feels like LRF is firing now. The water feels alive. Loads of mini sandeel and fry about. With it a huge amount of aggressive species. Good array of fish hitting non-flavoured lures. Nice to see the shoal bass have returned. Could this be why I didn't catch a single goby all weekend? Or maybe just out-competed by the wrasse.

More Species Showing

Tompot Blenny Langstone Harbour

Not getting much fishing in at the moment, but another hour here and there is at least keeping the species coming. Read more

Night Game Poole Quay

Pollack on Flail

A 90 minute Night Game session at Poole Quay resulted in some good fun with the local Pollack population. All fish were caught in the top third of the water column. A couple of big Smelt even managed to inhale the size 8.

Best of all, and what really gave me payback for braving the drizzle was witnessing ragworm spawning on the surface. I've only ever seen this once before and never as clearly as this. Couldn't understand why they weren't getting smashed by the Pollack.

BLAC Sea Final Weymouth

Leopard Spotted Goby in Weymouth Harbour

Weymouth, you excelled yourself! What an amazing venue for a species hunt. Competitors managed 17 species in 8 hours of fishing. Without bait. That's ridiculous! Read more
