Light Action Fun 31-10-2011

Have not fished much the last few weeks, so thought I would get out today in between surfing, and get some fish! Started off near Salcombe, the weather was not great, choppy conditions with swell rolling in. Went light, with the Nories RockFish Bottom UL 1.8-7g, 2506 Certate with 0.8PE Sunline Small Game.

Scrambled down to a rocky platform, tide was pushing, lots of water movement. Started out with small plugs, working various depths, and caught a good handful of Pollack. Switched over to a small metal vib lure, and again took a load of Pollack, nothing too big tho. Finally tackled up with a 2.5" Fin-s SP, and wangled out a small Wrasse, along with a few Pollack.

The tide was pushing up over my fishing spot, so headed off for a surf at home. Looking back from the footpath, quick shot of the terrain and conditions;

Then this evening, decided to go for a spot of LRF in Dartmouth. Wind was strong, but managed to find some sheltered spots in the Harbour. Rod choice was the Nories Slow Retrieve 0.9-5g with the same reel and line as above. Used a 0.9g Ecogear Shirasu Fine head, with an Ecogear Aqua Aji Straight lure, drifted in the current.

First fish of the evening was a Smelt, followed by several Pollack, from micro up to the size of the one pictured below;

As the tidal flow and wind increased, decided to fish a little heavier, and rigged up a 2" Ecogear BugAnt, Texas style with a 3g sinker. Twitched along the bottom, had a more aggressive fish take the lure, and after a scrappy fight, landed a small Bass from a dark spot;

Had good fun, was nice to get out fishing again, think I will be heading down to Plym tomorrow night for some more light action.
