Ecogear or Eco Warrior

Ecogear Bream prawn is also on the menu for our Harbour Pollock, caught using a Nories slow retrieve 74, Shimano Stella 100fe and Sunline rockfish 0.4 pe braid.

Aji is Japanese for Scad. Scad are probably the most fun fish to catch on a light lure rod. I'm using a Nories Slow retreive suitable for casting weights  up to 3.5g
This Fantastically powerful scad was caught using a 0.9g shirasu fine jig head with a small piece of pink Power Isome.

Plymouth Scad
This scad was caught using an ecogear 0.9g shirasu fine jig head with a small piece of pink Power Isome from Marukyu.

Mackerel from a harbour
This Mackerel went like stink, my Nories Slow retrieve can bend into a semi circle. caught thanks to the power of the isome in Pink.

Gold sinny wrasse
Gold sinny wrasse, some people say these wee fish are rare. Not in Plymouth. We are catching these wrasse regularly. Power isome cut into sections on a size 10 or smaller hook with spilt shot is a poller method of catching these. I caught this on a ecogear shirasu fine jig head weighting in a a mighty 0.9g

Had a wonderful night last night, fished a mark known for its weed and lost a far bit of tackle, I don’t like the idea of leaving my junk in the sea. I understand the jigheads eventualy  rust away quickly but what happens to all the soft plastics??

I got me thinking…..Geek stuff beware

Some of you might know I’m testing  some products by Ecogear Aquagear and Marukyu in the form Power Isome. We all know both products catch loads of fish and certainly give us the edge, accounting for most of the fish caught on the LRF shores.

Is there more to the ethos of Ecogear / Ecoaquagear? The clue is in the Name. The Ecogear / EcoAquagear products are 100%  perfectly  Biodegradable ( not just Biodegradable).

Some products decompose at faster rates than others. Ecogear products are designed to be fully fledged biodegradable plastics.

To cut out all the nitty gritty,Some companies claim to biodegradable, these plastics lose there form and become invisible to our eyes but still exist.  by taking extra measures Ecogear products go one step further by entering a cycle of nature! Totally non toxic and friendly to environment.

More info can be found here

“An enzyme called lipase in microorganisms breaks up esters into alcohol and acid, which are eventually turned into water and carbon dioxide. The main material of ECOGEAR’s biodegradable plastic worms is therefore nontoxic and friendly to the environment.”

I knew Booze would play a part somewhere in the whole process 😉

Back in the devils backyard

Armed with another golden ticket allowing access to a very special mark I had very high expectations!!!!!
The mark usually fishes so well on the back tide……..not last night!
I got home rather deflated, but in reflection I had an alright night.
With the sun behind us our long shadows loomed inside the area we wanted to fish, this mark also fishes well in the dark! While waiting for the darkness I thought I spotted a Bass. Sight casting a Nories Shrilpin 2” lure with a ecogear shirasu jig head seemed to spook the fish. I seen another bass and began reeling in much quicker than usual……. My Rod, a Nories sea bass program tide controller slowly looped over, seaweed? The drag on the reel slowly turned picking up speed gradually. It must be weed in the current, no sign of any head shaking resistance. I continued reeling in. My Mate Tony went for the net, I didn’t question him thinking he was kindly going to help me with the mess on the hook. All of a sudden the line went slack…. I’m free cool. Then the usually calm Tony shouts reel faster it’s coming towards you…… With in seconds a fine specimen was in the net. All very unexciting, a good few reports of mullet suggest they go like stink. My mullet was rather uneventful but a first for me.




As the sun sank into Plymouth Hoe I was bracing myself for a night of crazy Bass fishing. All about large takes from the surface producing. Ripples every where, dorsil fins up out of the water it had to be a good night. I went slightly smaller on my jighead down to a size ten 0.9 gram with a ecogear aquagear aji straight.

Followed by a rather healthy
Scorpion fish


The next and only fish was a large mackerel! He made my night, he gave me the fight the mullet should have. He was awesome
