Early morning session, bass!

Up and out early this morning to a local mark for a chance of bass.
At the beach and fishing by 4am in the dark as the light is starting to lift. The start of the early light was clouded over, until the sun broke through a good few hours later.

The 1st bass of the morning was the biggest at 50cm.

It didn't take long to get into another after a quick move and change of lure, and this is how the morning progressed, change & move, change & move. 10 bass in total & 2 mackerel.

IMA - Sassuke 140

Tackle House - Contact Node 150S

Lucky Craft - Gunfish

Tackle House - Feed Shallow Plus

Complete mix of lures used today, you'll see the new Okuma Trio high speed FD / size 40. The rod is one of my own 'Specialist Lure', 9ft rated 10-50g.

Quite a few of the fish this morning were hooked in the body or below the eyes with the other flying trebles that weren't taken in the mouth.


  1. Congratulations for such a fun morning.
    It seems that this day is worth every lure them, no?

  2. Hey Richard, cracking report and rod looks great.....am starting to drool at the thought of picking mine up and getting out there. Have been watching a load of the blogs and plenty being caught now, shame Im stuck out here away from it all.



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.
