gurgler attack this morning.

Post by nthendpompey »

went to a spot over hayling this morning.arrived at 5.30 to the sound of terns /gulls working hard .bass blitzing all over the place.put on my floating line with 8ft of mono and tied on a size 1 white gurgler with dolls eyes,as soon as the fly had hit the water the bass were all over it.in a 2hr spell last count of the bass hooked,all around the pound mark.after they had demolished my gurgler,retied a new one,differant style of gurgler,but no takers ,just playing with the fly.at this moment two inflatables each with a china man in ,turned up hurling mackeral feathers everywhere,then the arrival of the local seal.called it a day after that,just had a few casts at a mackeral shoal on the way back to the car.not bad morning,and great sport on the gurgler.

Well done Mick. The early bird gets the Bass. Good fun on the gurgler I'll bet.

flat sea colin,ideal .you get to see how bass attack the fry/sandeels as they knock the fly around before atcually taking it.

I know what you mean Mick. I was in a boat with Simon yesterday and you could see the bass running side by side with the fly before trying to 'gill-plate' it or peeling off upon seeing the boat. I guess that they have to use such tactics considering their lack of teeth!
