Autumn 2017

So after some epic fishing in August unfortunately I wasn’t able to get out for quite a while. But being the true friend I am and with some perfect weather for the boat I lent it to Tim for as long as he wanted while I couldn’t get out. He continued to improvise what we had learned landing numerous 70cm+ fish to 75cm as well as witnessing something I have only dreamed of…

The ”Pinnacle” of fishing…

So that’s a load of crap but it makes for a funny title anyway. I’ll follow on from my last post and so onto 2017. I didn’t fish much, at all early last season. I actually bought a fly rod and started targeting mullet. Wow! Isn’t that addictive! Have to say visual fishing for me probably is the ”Pinnacle” of fishing, I don’t think I’ll enjoy anything as much as that style. If you don’t see them eat it, it don’t count!

Le crazy!

The Fiiish crazy sandeel… This shouldn’t really surprise me and to be fair it’s not so much about the lure as the fish. But on it’s day the Crazy sandeel showed me ”how” it was done and I was taught another lesson on the boat. This was in June and I had only just started to use a fish finder.

Time to write…

I feel bad for neglecting my blog this year, I knew it wasn’t going to be an ordinary year and that things would have to be sacrificed. One was my fishing time and the other was finding time to keep my blog updated with anything interesting I may encounter when I did get out. Well I’ve hardly done any shore fishing this year due to work commitments and have zero to write about in that respect unfortunately but I have been getting out on my SIB when I can and it has been very interesting in that respect. So hopefully over winter I’ll be able to find the time to catch up on some of my experiences.  Continue reading

2015 Gear review from the year

Another year past and more experience gained with products, what helps, what’s needed and what are we just going to have to put up with. The funny thing with all products manufactured is that they just can’t be built to last, if they did they would probably never sell enough gear to make it worth there while producing the goods in the first place. Now I don’t treat my gear kindly and if anything, I myself could probably make the biggest difference when it comes to making stuff last…

Irish bass festival 2016

Me and my mate Tim have just got back from Ten days in Ireland for the bass festival. It was our first time over there and had no idea what to expect. Stories of poor fishing and the place being easily blown out where worrying. We made plans just in case of such situation but where pleased to see the forecast before the comp was blowing West along the coast. This brought a little swell and clear water though the forecast was meant to be going SW for the comp.
