Just a quickie

Just a quick update as I haven't posted for a while, although if you want to read about bass caught - then you may want to skip this entry now as fishing always has a way to bring you down with a bump. After my lucky March bass I've been out on a few trips and nothing, although if I'm honest as we're still in April, its not unexpected!

The lure rod and new reel (all for less than £60) have been great and a real delight to use in and around my local harbours. On my last trip I may have received a tentative enquiry when I switched over to the speed worm but I have the feeling I'm still about 4 weeks away before I'm in with a realistic chance. Brother in law Rob on the Island has been out countless times bait fishing having lost a bass at least the size of mine at his feet, with similar results to me.

I have pondered about using baits in the harbour along my spot early next year as I have a feeling I may have just missed an early run of female bass coming in to lay their eggs? Who knows? But if its a mild winter and spring next year I'm certainly going to try and find out.

Love this lure, just wished they were available at the same weight as the Dolives.


Most bites...
