Ali Laird had a frustrating session fishing for thin lipped mullet but was rewarded in style when this 4lb specimen was eventually tempted by his baited spinner in the Taw Estuary.
Its mid summer the longest days are here now and it doesn’t get any better out at the waters edge. Over the next few days it be would great to share a few images of summer at the waters edge. So lets see some images of fish, water and fishing. Lets get away from those standard grip and pose shots of angler with fish and try to get a bit of atmosphere and the joys of angling. Please either email to me at email@example.com or just post on the North Devon Angling News Facebook page and I will transfer from there.
Next weekend I publish a picture special of North Devon Angling Views! Thanks for your response so far
Blue skies, calm seas and clear water the lure fishers paradise. Daniel Welch has been enjoying some superb sport off North Devon’s spectacular coastline.
Awesome light gear fishing for pollack on a 16g Nomura rod. Loads of pollack around 4-5lb and got smashed up by a couple big ones. So moved to a slightly heavier setup and had a 10lb 3oz beauty caught on a size 4 fiiish candy green lure supplied by High Street Tackle
Ian Laird was enjoying some great sport in the Taw estuary using a baited spoon to tempt several thin lipped mullet up to 3lb 6oz. Seizing the opportunity he collected his son Ollie up from school to take him on short mullet session. An LRF outfit with 10lb b.s Spiderwire braid and size 3 customized Mepps lure resulted in Ollie landing a fine thin lip of 3lb 6oz.
Combe Martin SAC member Ross Stanway enjoyed a wrasse fishing session with his son Charlie they tempted several topped by this fine fish of 4lb 7oz. ( Below)
(Below) John Shapland tempted this specimen thin lipped grey mullet of 4lb 1.5oz.
Smoothound are still producing good sport from marks along the coast with several good specimen tempted to just under 10lb.
