Light Rock Fishing equipment I use

Below is a current list of the equipment I use for my LRF. Plymouth has a many different marks, although not really necessary I like to have a rod suited to the conditions.

I know what your thinking I’m a “tackle tart” yes I cant argue but could I say I’m a collector??

 

Rods
Nories Rock Fish Bottom Ultra Light 610ULS tube tip
Nories Slow Retrieve SR710F tube tip
Nories Slow Retrieve SR74 non F tube tip a crazy rod, so bendy casts up to 3.5g
Nories Rock Fish Bottom Jighead Snapper 7’10” solid tip
GRAPHITELEADER Finezza Compatto 7’6” Travel tube tip
GRAPHITELEADER Finezza 7’6” solid tip
Tict 710 inbite 0.9 – 12g. tube tip a great all round rod for the UK.
Megabass Shore Luck 7’4 SLX 0.8 -9g tube tip short handle, one hand casting. beautiful rod but not as sensitive as the my other rods.
Reins RAZ Ajiringer-Z 8’0″ 0.6-8g (Sold this rod on, liked it but it wasn’t for me)
Nories Sea bass program 5g -12g tube tip, almost one piece ( not strictly a Lrf rod but boy does it sling out little weights too, it’s well happy chucking 1.8g head plus softy with super sensitivity. A rod I will be using more often)

LRF Comedy Night and Bread

 

Tuesday nights are not only Two for one at Pizza Express but for me Tuesdays & Thursdays are fish nights.

Decided to pitch up to a lazy mark that has really been hit or miss these days, We always seem to hit loads of small Pollock and just miss out on the Scad. I really need to search out a new spot. ( A sentence I use on a regular basis)

Straight in on Pollock using a Nories Slow retrieve 710F paired up with a Shimano Stella 2500 fe loaded up with Sunline small game fluro 2.5lb. I recently bought some tict Bullhead jig heads and wanted to give them a try.

These jig heads have a groove cut out at the front to send more vibrations and tiny bubbles, I really liked the fishing 2g & 1.5 g jig heads. Ecogear Aqua strawtails in Chartreuse then changing through the colour range. I found the fish seemed to wise up to the lures whizzing about them. On each change a few fish would get caught before the bites dried up.

It wasn’t only the LRF pollock that had a fight in them, a small LRF sized random yokel turned up & squared up for a fight with one of the usual Light brigade. If the fishing wasn’t to finicky he might have got his way but hay…..we’re fishers not fighters.

Two of the regular light lure boys had downed tools in favour of bread??? Chasing the Mullet……..That is a fish sent to this planet to wind us good folk up.

Another funny night packed with fish in the shape of a Large ish scad, a decent Poor Cod an a huge arm full of pollock, not to mention the happy chatty ole fellow, a time bandit spoiling for a fight and the frustrations of the bread boys.

Finesse fishing Plymouth, Sunline & Ecogear

Ecogear Strawtail LRF lures always catch a large selection of Pollock.

Bass frenzy

Every now & then I get to fish in Poseidon’s play ground. ( an MOD Mark, enough said) It never disappoints!!!! while most of the guys fish there are on bait and do really well, I mostly go light. ( LRF)

Last Tuesday I went with Danny & his brother. Danny & I went light and a two hours session  produced a manic 20 minutes of 2lb Bass 6 total (three each). We also managed about 50  Pollock between us & a wee flounder.
