Do you ever come across a mark and just think – This is it. How could it get any better?
During the summer I revisited one of my old mark which I used to fish as a lad and to be honest it had completely vanished off my radar until I was looking back through some old photographs.
We set off and it all came flooding back to me. It wasn’t long before I found dozens of independent Kelp beds strewn with boulders – perfect Wrasse ground.
What I liked about this mark was the compactness of it all. One minute you are able to target Wrasse and then a quick hop onto some of the other rocks and you find masses of Pollack literally carpeting the sea bed. Granted most of these are only in the range of 1 – 2 pounds but still great sport.
There are a few selective spots here also where you can find larger Pollack up to 8 or 9 lbs but sadly the weather kept me off last season.
I can not wait to get back out on it and explore a little bit more. We had about three sessions on this mark last Summer and everyone produced fish up to 3 lbs.
Just a quick gap filler anyway for the blog to keep it ticking along nicely until I get out for my first proper session of 2013!
Belated Happy New Year
