Pollock on Metal Jig

Found some good fun out on the boat. With small neap tides and light winds in the morning we were able to fish LRF tackle both at anchor and on the drift. Starting with paddletails we occasionally found good pockets of fish on the drift but connecting was hit and miss. All the same it was good fun after a long winter. The pockets of fish turned out to be Pollock in the 2-3lb range but it wasn’t until I swapped over to light metals that hook-up rates improved (trailing hooks) and I started finding other species, including Ballan Wrasse and a surprise Black Goby – a first for me on metals!
