First Perch of 2017

I would like to have another trip very soon. These fish are about to pop. If I could have found one 45cm+ it would have serious weight at the minute. Easier said than done of course but they are a reality and possibility here.  The two hours last night was worth it, today wasn't.

Back in the game!

Following on from my fiasco a couple of weeks ago I had quite a day to myself today. I think I’ve only caught this many Sea Trout, once or maybe twice before. I had a half chance to cap it off with a peach but the huge bulge following the lure faded as the fish caught site of me when it was virtually under the rod tip. A fantastic days fishing.
My first fish of the day, a touch on the lean side but come May/June it will be back to normal.
My longest and best conditioned Sea Trout. It gave a robust account of itself in the tide. I'll be on the fly rod next time out . That will get things back to reality with a bang( or maybe even a splash)
