Back On Duty.....Clive Dobinson

After being allowed home for a couple of weeks it was time to get started on another session, little did I know that it was to be ten weeks! With weather ranging from factor 15 with insect repellent trying to find shade all day, to thermals and sleeping bag fully zipped up, a good test session for any bait and all tactics I carried out my bailiff duties upon my return, not only does this give me time to walk (slowly) around the lake in an attempt to spot fish but it also all...

Mark Laker from Kent caught his first ever Conger and Undulate Ray while fishing at anchor aboard Flamer IV on the Adamant Bank .Mark is pictured with his 14Ib Undulate Ray which was returned alive. Mark was using a Shakespeare 20Ib class rod with a flowing trace and pennel rig of Sakuma 6/0 and 4/0 hooks baited up with a cocktail of Ammo Squid and Mackerel.

Terry’s Travels Pike angling, fly verses the rest!

Published on

20-11-2013

I have known for many years now that the most successful method in hooking and landing a pike is on the fly. In my humble opinion, this is without dispute, but that is, of course my opinion! I realise that many pike anglers reading this will start shouting at me now, extolling the virtues of their own favourite pike disciplines such as trolling, dead-baiting, jerk-baiting etc, etc, and of course, they are all highly successful methods. However, for me personally, w...

The Penn Affinity reels are produced in two sizes, the 7000 model with line capacity of 295 yards of 30lb B/S and the larger 8000 version that has a capacity of 330 yards of 30lb B/S. I opted for the 7000 version back in January of this year, and once they arrived, couldn’t wait to put them through they’re paces. My first opportunity to test the reels was during a Specimen Bream expedition (see previous archive blogs) and fishing at distance, into a head-wind, ...

After what must have been my worse summer of my life with regards to my catch record I finally managed to bag my self my first 30lb fish for the year. I turned up at my venue and after walking around a number of times i had no fish signs to work from. So with a cold wind blowing down the lake I picked to fish the back of it hoping the carp would pick to be on the back of it to. Due to only fishing a short night and the fact it was now pitch black darkness I sent a multi rig o...

Terry’s Travels A Trio of Mullet

Although Thick-lipped Mullet are reasonably abundant on the north coast of Ireland, the other two species, namely Thin-Lipped and Golden-Grey Mullet prefer the slightly warmer seas that Southern Ireland has to offer. If I wanted any chance at all in finding the three species in one trip, that’s where I had to head. I do not doubt, with rising sea temperatures, that eventually these and other sub-tropical species will venture further up the west coast in the future. Howeve...

Overnight Chaos!.......

02-11-2013

I managed a quick overnight session on a small lake that I have fished for a few seasons now. This is my last season fishing this water as I am getting a few repeat captures now so after this season it will be left in the past. I had family commitments one saturday last month but they were due to finish by 5pm so a quick overnighter was on the cards. I felt there was little point going to a hard venue just for one night as I had to leave on the sunday by 9.30am so opted fo...

Hi guys it has been awhile but I had a chance to get a quick overnighter in on Saturday 26th October but as my luck goes at the moment the weather was not going to be good , high winds and heavy rain but I braved the elements anyway. On arrival at Taswood lakes I found there were only two other brave soles on Heron lake and both of them had the same idea and pegged up on the main pool on the wind, so I decided to set my stall in the middle of the lake with a large overhangin...

After the hectic sleepless night it was nearly time for breakfast so thinking I should rest the swim and catch up on some sleep, so baited my areas with 2 to 3 kilo of Red Crustacean on each spot and went off for breakfast to compare catch reports, it soon became clear that the fish were holding up on the north bank where three of us were based, my brother had 4 carp including a 40,8 lb and Gary another gulp army member having 3 to 33lb, bringing our total to 13 in under 24 h...

After a 2.5 hr. drive from Teesside to hull I arrived at Newbridge lake at 11 am I got straight on the peg and started setting up, once set up I took a walk around lake to speak to fellow carpers to see how it’s been fishing, I have been told that it’s been fishing really well but only at night as they seem to have been sunbathing and no one has been catching during days. I have fished this venue 6 times in the last 18 months with my biggest out being a ghostie at 21lb.4oz ca...
