Swanage Tompot Bonanza

Tompot Blenny at Swanage

Dropped in on Swanage Pier for a few hours this bank holiday and bumped into fellow light lure enthusiast, Ricki Hill. It was really firing in places and it was painful when I had to tear myself away, all too soon. Pleased to hear that Ricki found the rare Baillons after I left. I did add Black Bream and Pouting to my yearly tally. The number of Tompot Blenny was staggering.

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.

LRF on Swanage Pier

Swanage Pier

What a cracking bank holiday Monday it was down in Dorset!

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

Dragonet at Swanage

Always enjoy encountering the Dragonet. My first of the year and 21st lure caught species of 2013. And still no blennies!!
