Last stop in my Dorset smackdown was Kimmeridge Bay – a mark with almost cult status – especially for Bass. But I had LRF wrasse on my mind…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!
I promised myself when taking up this lure business that I wouldn’t get consumed by Bass. Not that I don’t enjoy Bass fishing. I do, but I’d seen folk get the silver fever and start to look down their noses at everything else. No sir, I would not become that angler, but it’s very hard to not get a bit obsessed after a brilliant week’s fishing More
As the heady days of summer disappear so does my late evenings spent wandering the shore looking for a Bass or two. There are still Bass to be caught from the beaches this time of year but to really get amongst a few fish, a boat is needed to get offshore a few miles and look for the shoals of Bass that are starting to feed up for winter. On a recent trip out we headed to some sand banks where we know the baitfish hang out this time of year and watched the fish-finder intently looking for the screen to show mid water clouds of prey that would give away the predators location.

Had the pleasure of fishing LRF with Ben Field from The Art of Fishing on his home patch, North Cornwall. Very different fishing to my own and I learned a lot about fishing this unsheltered coastline. We caught Pollack, Mackerel and Ben had a small Bass. I got a beating – but I will be back! :o)
Has this been the windiest year ever? It certainly seems that way to me and lots of fishing plans have fallen by the wayside as we simply could not get out in the boat. But when the weather eventually gave us a chance recently, we filled the boat with rods and lures with the intention of getting amongst a few fish. More
Fished a very famous south coast mark at the weekend. Unsurprisingly the structure was holding Bass. Dan had this one on LRF gear
