I'd also point you in the direction of Henry Gilbey's blog, he's mad on lure fishing and has a fair few tackle reviews/advice sections. Well worth a read.

Hi Sambo, thats oh the camel estury. Fished it from the other side (Padstow) a few weeks ago. The estury is a good bass mark right the way through. Fish the channels with lures or peeler and you should nail a few. Trevose Head round from Padstow, (bit of a drive) is well worth a look but be blumin c...

My suspicion is that you're wasting your time. Crabs peel infrequently as they they do so to grow bigger. If you are keeping your hardbacks, chances are that they have already recently peeled so not due a peel for a while or they are not getting enough food for growth which will reduce the frequency...

I tend to use it as a last light lure. I find the fish shy away from it if light levels are too high. Still one of my favourite. No better lure to stop the heart when they hit off the surface.

Cheers, in many repects it was nice to arrive with a blank canvas and use a bit of watercraft. Very satisfying to study the ordinance survey map, take a chance, cast to an area you think looks fishy then feel that bang. When it all comes together there's no better feeling. Think I was very lucky wit...

Hi folks, as promised a couple of words about the week. Monday 30th - due to the direction of the wind and it's strength, had to fish in the Camel estury. Made my way to Hawkers Cove and followed the tide out. Casting a range of lures, xslayers and Yo zuri, had a number of schoolies but nothing of a...

Trevose Head and Padstow....

Hi folks, taking the family down to the South West for the week, was hoping for a heads up on how Trevose is fishing. In the hours I've got off I'll mostly be throwing some megabass x-slayers and Zonks into the ocean to see what's around, however, may get the chance of a bit of bait fishing for Wras...

Its pretty quiet their at the moment, the odd flounder, pin whiting and doggy when the sea colours up. The East arm is much longer and a further walk from the car park so generally tends to be quieter. West arm tends to get crowded with feather throwers. You'll be very luck to hit the mackerel at th...

Hi mate,

got to admit I struggle with them too. I find the butt section about 6 inches too long, probably because I learnt to cast using course gear. At the end of the cast I find I'm cramped for space so lose a lot of power.

Cheers for the luck Steve. I'll need it. The wife owns a place in Spain so we go every year. I've pretty much tried every approach. Fish baits, crab baits, squids, cuttle, octopus, lures (2 years ago, I pretty much thrashed the water to a foam with a whole selection of lures - blank). Actually caugh...

Thanks for the replies folks. I dont think there's any opportunity to dig lug, as the med has a tiny tidal range, never seen any casts. And now I'm worried about Spanish shell fish laws. Hopefully wont apply as they'll be coming from the supermarket. Still, I'll probably have a month of just sitting...

Abbotsbury 4/7/10

Hi folks, spent 24hrs at Abbotsbury over the weekend. Settled in amongst the army of featherers and lobbed a selection of baits into the surf during day light to target the Bass. Absolutely nothing. Not a knock. Strange for Abbotsbury, but there was a thick slick of weed that hung around most of the...

Letting shellfish 'ripen'.

Hi folks, After some advice as to how to let shell fish ripen, as I've read that slightly wiffy Slipper limpet can be deadly for bass. I'm off to Spain at the end of the month for a month, and usually the fishing is dire from the beach infront of the flat. Have seen a couple of bass taken, so I'm re...
