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.
One of the highlights from Saturday's session at Swanage Pier was catching on the new Reins Aji Nyoro lure. New for the 2015 French Touch Fishing catalogue, the Aji Nyoro is a tiny 50mm eel replica. There's a huge amount of tiny sandeel around at the moment and the Nyoro is the perfect lure to match the hatch. Read more
First of this year's trips down to Swanage Pier and the first of the fish. It was clear that the Scorpos were back with a vengeance. Team Taylor (Mark and Sam) were into double figures by the time I got there. Young Sam was rinsing us. Well done Sam. Read more
Always enjoy encountering the Dragonet. My first of the year and 21st lure caught species of 2013. And still no blennies!!
