With the wind predicted light, and the swell showing as minimal, the opportunity was presented to fish some exposed deep rocky grounds down in West Cornwall with the light gear. Fished from low tide, through the push for a couple of hours, tackle was the Nories Slow Retrieve 0.9-5g rod, with 3lb Sunline Small Game Fluoro straight through. Arrived to find the water clear, with some movement, swirling the granite towers.
Rigged up a Ecogear 2" Paramax Texas style, with a 1.8g sinker. This combo was a winner from the first cast, with both Pollack and Wrasse going mad for it. I get my Ecogear stuff from Ben @ The Art Of Fishing
The Wrasse were all on the smaller side, but when fishing light, each of these fish gave a good account of themselves, pulling hard and bolting for their hidey-holes!
Total of five Wrasse landed, with a few Pollack in between. As the tide got higher, also fished a small Jackson Cymo vib lure. I have been trying out my small metals with single hooks, replacing the small trebles, this Pollack certainly liked the look of it;
Don't forget, you have until the end of January 2012 to enter my competition to win some Sunline Momentum 4x4 braid (original blog post HERE) Entry is free, all you have to do is email me the answer, and a winner will be drawn at random at the beginning of Feb 2012.
