Archive of all LRF fish caught in the month of September.
Summer appears to be slipping away on the south coast, so I thought I better put in some effort for the Lure Heaven UK species hunt. Luckily the Corkwing are still in residence at pretty much every seaward mark we fish in Portsmouth – they won’t be for too much longer. Then a change of mark presented me with seemingly a sea of Black Goby but I did fluke out my first Dragonet of the year – good for the comp and my yearly species tally.
I like the end of the summer season. Fish species seem to turn on in waves. If last week was boom time for Cuttlefish, this week was peak for Corkwing Wrasse. There were dozens feeding at both the marks we fished and very eager to take an artificial worm. Such was the ferocity of the Corkwing it was nearly impossible to catch anything else with this tactic
