Dan and I had a good day on the boat up East, chasing species on lures and artificials. Last count was 14 between us with the highlights being a Baillons for Dan and a Cuckoo Wrasse for myself. A boat Tompot is always pretty cool as well. More
While the bigger fish targets have been pretty obliging since lockdown eased, the typical, smaller LRF species have felt a bit thin on the ground at times. Species count is going well, but the volume of fish doesn’t seem to be there yet. Perhaps that’s to do with mating duties. I caught a Corkwing last week that was still full of eggs (carefully released).
The AquaWave Mushi is not new to this website. It’s one of my favourite lures for lots of species when the conditions allow me to throw tiny lures and jig-heads. I got that chance again recently and set about seeing what species I could catch. More
Escaped to Side in Turkey for a week with the GF and of course the Rock Rover and a handful of fishing lures came along for the ride. Enjoyed the fishing in Turkey, despite the daytime temperature reaching mid to high 30s every single day. Mad dogs and Englishmen! More
