It was in Kent where I set out to complete my first 24 hour session and with the weather being in everyone’s favour there was little choice of swims available to me on the day in fact there was only one swim left on the lake. The lake in question was one of Frant lakes specimen waters, with a good head of high teens and low twenties I set about catapulting boilies to the island which is visible in the pictures. I had just recently placed a bait order and just the d...

  After our successful Flounder bash earlier in the day, we made sure that we were well fed and suitably geared up for the night session ahead. This would be on one of the many surf beaches Cork has to offer. On this occasion we were in search of Painted Ray, and in this particular area, if lucky enough to find them, they range from 6-14lbs. With light southerlies and relatively calm seas, our optimism was high. The ever-present “doggies” made an early ...

Mid winter If you are a river angler then this winter surly has to be one of the poorest we have had to suffer for some years but if you are an angler who frequents still waters then what a bonanza! This really has to rate as one of the best winters I have had in angling on the lakes and pools of Shropshire for many years. The almost constant stream of warm west to south westerly low pressures that have rolled over our fair isle have made the carp of Shropshire feed harder t...

This was day number two on our Cork shore-angling adventure. After our successful crack at the Whiting on the previous night, we were now on a new mission in search of Flounder. Just myself, Sid and Andy on this occasion as Sid’s brother Brian had other commitments. Our first venue looked superb, but quite worryingly; we never had a touch between us. After three excruciatingly cold hours, we decided on a move further along the estuary. It may have been possible that we mi...

Terry’s Travels Chasing Whiting In the weeks leading up to Christmas, I managed a few shore trips, and am I glad I did! I don’t need to remind you that from the beginning of 2014, Ireland, along with the UK has taken an absolute battering from storm after storm, on several occasions we had three storms in one week! With gale force winds and record rainfall, there have been few venues fit to venture out on, both from an angling perspective and a health and safety iss...

I thought for this blog I would look back at the last years fishing. To be honest my carp fishing has taken a back seat to pike fishing as this is more productive during the colder months. I was hoping to get some perch fishing in but the river has been flooded now for months. I’ve been going to a day ticket lake near Ware in Hertfordshire which has a good track record of big pike. I’ve done 3 day sessions and had two pike at 17 and 14 pounds. Not to bad I think. 2013 wa...

I’m often asked what I think is the best shore rig to target general catches from the beaches with during the difficult months of February and March. This is the period when the bulk of bigger fish are offshore spawning and inshore fish stocks are at their lowest point. Most clean beaches will still hold fair numbers of flounders, dabs, rockling, dogfish and small whiting at this time, but can also see early plaice, school bass, codling and coalfish caught. Realistically, ...
