More Metal Than Metallica

Day off number two spent fishing int the Penzance area saw me visiting a mark I checked out a few times in Winter. Clean sandy beach leading onto very deep rock and weed, nice variation and good fishing platforms. Needs a small swell to be safe, as the sea really surges up and over the rocks. I love the coastline down in West Cornwall, some amazing features, and very rugged!

Continuing on with the soft lures, I have had some really good success lately with the Sawamura 4" OneUpShads. Rigged on Ecogear 3D jigheads, with a treble on the lower eye, I have also added the Ecogear leaf blades in for added attraction. Leaves the little 4" shads filled with metal!

Fishing was slow over the low tide, with just a handful of fish landed. The small Bass seem to be out and about at the marks, with a feisty little spikey landed in this session. Other fish taken were Pollack, which are plentiful this time of year in West Cornwall.

End of the session, I wanted to bed my line down on the spool better, so I clipped on a naked 14g jighead, and launched it to the horizon. Reeling in at double speed, suddenly felt a bump as I ripped the jighead back through the water to me, head shake, and the naked jighead had hooked a Pollack bang in the lip with the treble!
