Weymouth Christmas LRF Species Hunt

Weymouth Christmas LRF Species Hunt

Hats off to Andy Mytton for a first class LRF competition and meet-up, drawing in anglers from all over the country. Huge turn-out for any time of year (I think it was 34), but for December, with 40mph winds roaring away it was exceptional. Lots and lots of friendly faces, plus a few new to the saltwater side of light lure. Everyone appeared to be having fun. Read more

Sand Goby

Sand Goby Picture

In the depths of dark December, there was no real expectation to add to my yearly species tally, but Weymouth delivered a pretty little Sand Goby as its Christmas present to me. Just shows you, you just need to get out there and fish!

Hope these pictures may help someone with identifying Sand Gobies.

Horse Mackerel at Weymouth

Horse Mackerel on Knight Worm
Great little session with Chris Wheeler in Weymouth on Saturday night. Wind dropped away to nothing for a couple of hours around midnight and we were able to fish delicate Aji-type lures on jigheads, using the curve fall method, on-the-drop (OTD). We picked up the desired Horse Mackerel (Scad), Mackerel and some decent sized Pollack, plus the odd tiny Whiting caught well off the bottom. Really enjoyed it.

Fishing with Kouichi Murai of Breaden Japan

By a strange chain of events, I had the absolute pleasure of fishing with Kouichi Murai, CEO of the Breaden tackle company of Japan. My new friend Shota Jenkins Konno had asked if we could go Light Rock Fishing while they were both over in Europe and of course I jumped at the chance. Read more
