Time for a catch up!

It's been a while since posting.

Appologies to people I have missed with phone calls and emails, but due to a family illness and work changes other priorites have had to come first.

I have made it out fishing a few times, which has produced a few good bass, including a new PB!

Sunday 25th September:
Produced the PB 6 1/2lb fish along with a few other smaller ones.
Wet & windy with a building sea gave me the prize, then put back to swim away.
One of the 'Hokkaido' lures from Chesil Bait 'N' Tackle tempted this one.

 6 1/2lb Dorset PB.

Sunday 9th October:
Got out early today, a bit breezy, but fish about.
Not big numbers, & conditions were getting worse as the morning went on. The sea was going greener and dirtier (well water clarity was sh***. Lol), wind picking up to 20mph plus!
Managed to catch, off the top and below. No blank.
Only small fish, but conditions dictated the choice of lures.With the water clarity not being great, looking for something with more noise (rattle, vibration etc).
Complete mix, bright sun and low clarity!
The colour for me was one that would pick up better on visual in low visability, but something the sun would pick out. Bright chartreuse colour, pearl rainbow, gold/orange. Also needed something to cast into a 20+mph wind, Could look at the jig type or the more airodynamic minnows around a weight of 20g+, my personal choice. Zonk 120 chartreuse.
On the top, gunfish virtually works everywhere, just the colour variations.
The ghost colours normally being the opaque clear allowing more light to filter through.

Saturday 30th October:
Finally got the chance with a couple of friends that has taken a while to sort dates!
Met with Andy Philips / Hooks, Line & Sinkers
Nobby & 1 of his work mates. An early meet up in the car park then the long walk!
Expectations were fairly high, but then I hadn't been fishing for a while and just getting out was a bonus. In the dark the smell of sea weed washed up on the big tides made for promising fishing, but as the light levels came up so did the colour of the water. The 1st fish was a small pollack followed by a bass of around 3 1/2-4lb. The water was some what green in colour with the clarity declining as the tide was rising. The wind was always increasing and colouring the water even more. Andy got one out from the dirty weeded water on a Komono II.

So the next trip?
Don't know yet when, but as long as the tide rises nd falls I will be back some point!

Almost forgot the new Tiger Wrap!


About Me

My photo
My name is Richard and I have been fishing for over thiry years. Some might say I was born with a fishing rod in my hand. I have fished my way through chalk stream trout to beach fishing for cod, and of course living so close to Weymouth, one of the largest charter boat fleets in England I have to fish a few charter boat trips a year. I have had the pleasure of bass fishing in France to fishing the Atlantic surf of Co. Clare, Eire. My fascination continues with the sea and the casting of plastic trying to fool the fish to attack my plastic lures.
