With practice it’s amazing what you can get away with on the boat. This beautifully marked Ballan Wrasse was fooled at slack tide fishing a 2.3g Shirasu jighead in 9m of water.
Very happy with this one. My first ever Goldsinny Wrasse by any method and again I have light rock fishing tactics to thank for it. I swapped back to my lighter solid tip rod and fished a split shot rig, tiny hook and a small section of large Power Isome. This takes me to 22 species this year.
