Had a bit of fun up Southampton Water last week chasing mini Bass on soft plastics. More
Arguably the Bass is the nations favourite sea fish to target with lures. With this cagey adversary, LRF tackle and techniques can offer an advantage in terms of stealth and subtlety. Find a shoal of even smallish Bass and expect a huge amount of fun catching them on lightly fished soft-plastics and metals. Make sure you’ve set your drag correctly!
Another fishing hangover continues into Tuesday from the weekend and has me wondering if I am getting too old for this lark… But try and stop me when this type of fixed-time, lure-only species hunt format is just so incredibly exciting and the vibe amongst competitors is just ace! More
A trip to visit relatives in Carmarthenshire this weekend gifted me the opportunity to fish a picturesque estuary on the flooding tide. The end result was a nice Bass on the 15g Caro rod. My first Welsh bass! Fought really well in the shallows and has left me wanting to do more of this style of angling.
