The shear frustration of seeing great numbers of fine sized bass and not being able to catch them because of the amount of suspended weed on the water would get to any fisherman.

Henry Gilbey found himself is such a situation yesterday morning and tells us “We had a situation yesterday morning where there were stacks of bass finning/sunbathing in front of us, but they seemed very uninterested in feeding. Eric did really well to nail one around the 5lb mark on the Hawg Wild 6’’ senko, a soft plastic these lads fish really slowly on a straight retrieve, and believe me, I get to hear fishing reports from time to time that quite frankly fry my brain, and these lures have been responsible for a scary amount of big bass over the last year or so. The lads specifically like the way you can tuck the hook point away on these senkos and not affect the action at all, and it’s this colour that they really like.”
