LRF - Nice Bass 13-07-2011

Headed out to the same area as yesterday this evening, East of Salcombe. Fished an hour after high, from 1900hrs to 2100hrs on the dropping tide. Flat calm conditions, with only a slight breeze in the air.

Tacked up with the light gear this time, Nories Slow Retrieve 0.9-5g with a Daiwa '10 Certate 2506 loaded with 0.2PE Varivas braid. Started off using a Tict Caro, with a 12" leader to a 3" Slug-Go rigged weightless on a size 6 straight shank hook. Swiftly hooked a Pollack, followed by something with a bit more fight, a nice condition Bass landed;

From then on it was all about the Pollack, landed 19 in total, all around the same size. Many came from consecutive casts. The high catch rate meant I could try out various lures, from small SP's to the small metals and plugs. The Ecogear VX40 blade was working very well, and caught for the first time on the Tackle House Nabura Deka metal jig and the Ecogear CX40HS crank bait;

All great fun on the light gear, such an enjoyable way of fishing. Was hoping to find a few Mackerel but they were a no show, hopefully next time.
