We endeavoured to find a new wrasse mark this weekend but the results were slightly disappointing. Having said that, we did find some stunning scenery and worked out access routes, etc. In fact, I think we stumbled upon some great looking bass ground. More
While I won't remember the 2016 Cornish Lure Festival as one of my finest angling achievements, the event once again demonstrated why it is a must-do competition on the lure fishing calendar. More

Really feels like LRF is firing now. The water feels alive. Loads of mini sandeel and fry about. With it a huge amount of aggressive species. Good array of fish hitting non-flavoured lures. Nice to see the shoal bass have returned. Could this be why I didn't catch a single goby all weekend? Or maybe just out-competed by the wrasse.
Had quite a nostalgic day yesterday fishing a few marks in Portsmouth that I used to fish as a boy. I was on my tod, so moved around a bit as the feeling took me. As it happened, it was a Scorpion Fish kind of day. More
Spent the long weekend in Start Bay, Devon and I must say it was beautiful. Although I didn't get much fishing in, I did have a quick go for the wrasse south of Start Point. What an amazing looking spot. The areas of coarse sand between the many rocky outcrops made me excited at the prospects of what other species may be present. As did the visible shoals of sandeel. I look forward to returning at a later date with more time to fish the area.
