Bass on the bob

I was recently in Courtmacsherry, Ireland and had been out with skipper Mark Gannon for the day aboard the Lady Louise. We’d enjoyed some great ground fishing including pollack, ling, wrasse, conger, cod and much more. As we’d motored out that morning we’d seen quite a few bass swirling as they moved up in to the estuary. In conversation during the day it was suggested we should keep some mackerel for bait and have a go for these bass that evening. The timing was dead right, ...

Once a year for the past seven years, I have offered the young angling volunteers from the “Angling First” charity in Northern Ireland a potentially memorable deep-sea angling adventure. Most of the young lads I meet later move on to other opportunities in life, and a new handful will sign-up to the charitable angling cause. The charity gives these young lads a great life-education as they move towards adult-hood including people-skills, decision making, organising and...

42 teams (420 competitors) fished the River Trent on various sections of the river from the non-tidal section downstream of Nottingham to the tidal section upstream of Torksey in the Angling Trust Division 1 National Championship on Saturday 9th August 2014. Weather conditions were far from ideal, with bright sunshine and blustery winds generally blowing downstream with the current. Recent rains had put just a tinge of colour in the water, but on the tidal stretches the ri...

I’ve always enjoyed mixing up my fishing. Living on the west coast of Wales, I am lucky in having a wide range of species to target, and pretty much every couple of weeks throughout the year I can go for something different. Its not just over time that I mix my fishing up either. I found out many years ago that it often pays to change your target species during the one day. This is done by fishing the peak feeding time for one species, then switching venue or tactics to ta...

During last winter, I challenged myself to catch the Three-Bearded Rockling, and in particular, one over specimen size (1lbs 12oz). The smaller varieties are extremely common around most shore marks, particularly rough-ground venues containing boulders, kelp-beds and “reefy” areas, also affectionately known as “tackle grave yards!” I had previously picked a few likely-looking shore marks and surveyed the areas during the day at low water. This gave a great insight into t...

I arrived at the lake about 12.00, meeting my old fella who had told me he had just lost one. So I dropped in next to him and quickly got my rods out I fished 3 rods. One on the far bank under the 3rd tree, the second to the right in front of a bank of reeds which was very shallow and weedy and the 3rd rod three quarters across the lake towards a telegraph pole, I kept it simple using mono hook links to a B175 trout hook with single 15mm squid liver boilies, I made 3 tubes ...

It occurred to me that I hadn’t caught or focused on Tench for ages and decided to plan some classic Tench lake fishing in the warmer months. With some lovely weather forecast I managed to schedule a day at Charlton Towers - a day ticket Tench lake near Selby in Yorkshire. This venue was proposed to me by Improve Your Coarse Fishing magazine who asked if they could shoot a feature for the magazine. The aim of the feature was to catch Tench on traditional float tactics - ...

My wife reminded me the other night that I had not done a blog since last year. The old saying doesn’t time fly comes to mind. After the French trip last year I concentrated on fishing one of the syndicates I am a member of , it has a very strict no publicity ban, written or on any social media websites and since it took me an age to gain membership. I had been doing one night a week and the red crustacean fished on snowman set up has worked well. Baiting up with the th...
