Rookie Bass Angler Steven Neely reports:

A quick hit and run raid was planned for Saturday afternoon – we had a few other errands to do but there is always enough time to get a spot of fishing in … isn’t there?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe headed off to a fairly popular mark with the bait anglers but it always chucks up a bit of sport on lures.

We stuck on 90 mm Fiiish Black Minnows to see if there was anything in the taking mood and on the first drop we nailed a wrasse.

We switched over onto dedicated wrasse plastics such as the Illex Ammonite Shad and Keitech Hog Impact – using both pegged Texas and Jika presentations.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFirst time I have seen on of these in real life …. a pipefish I think? Just got washed up on the little pier by a wave. A quick snap and I put it back in.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis was the largest fish of the session – no monster bud all cool sport. We ended up with about 15 fish, mainly wrasse and a few small pollack.

We got stuck out in some of the worst rain I have experienced ….. Soaked straight through but it was worth it!

Not bad for a quick chuck.
