All this wind and rain has made it difficult in comparison to last winter – but the bass are still there!
My final blog post of the decade! Thank you to my readers, clients, family and friends. Happy New Year!
Significant winter catches, new methods mastered and many client PBs – Part 1 (Jan-June) of my yearly review.
It’s a great feeling when a mark you suspect may produce, provides something of a red-letter event!
So what’s made it into my list for 2019? Two rods, a reel, waders, boots, fluorocarbon and various lures!
One fish that warmed a cold old night, and another successful session that also warmed the heart!
How the weather and the associated sea conditions has hugely influenced my approach in the past 6 weeks…
How fishing a mark outside of the ‘ideal conditions’ paid off following a period in the doldrums.
Another client PB! How differing sea and tidal states influenced the use of two very different lure types.
How did I utilise a bit of ‘me time…?’ By fishing and catching some lovely bass of course!
Two more methods relating to ‘how and where’ I ask my clients to cast and retrieve their surface lures!
In Part 1, two examples of how a surface lure can be highly effective on those very bight, sunny days.
