Always enjoy an appearance from a gurnard. This Tub hit an Isome fished on an oversize split shot rig (5g) fished on a slow drift in super calm conditions.
Dan has been doing well on red lures in recent weeks.
Like lots of fellow anglers I like to keep a tally of species every year and I enjoy the challenge of seeking out a particular species to tick off the list. In the old days of bait-only fishing I would hit maybe 18-20 species a year, but now I mainly lure fish that total has risen year on year. Before any bait-boys get there bait elastic in a twist, this isn't because fish all of a sudden like plastic more than food. It's purely down to the fact I am fishing more. Read more
Very happy with this one. Beautiful Tub Gurnard caught on LRF tactics - red Gulp Sandworm fished dropshot. Probably a shore PB for me and my 20th lure caught species of 2012. Hooked no more than 10ft from my rod tip in shallow water. Stunning looking fish.
