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.

The Taw estuary is fishing well for quality flounder with every chance of that elusive 2lb plus specimen before the end of the year, John Shapland has been targetting flounder over the past few days landing near specimens of 1lb 15oz, 1lb 14.5oz and 1lb 14oz.

One of the local mystery’s is the well established fact that Taw estuary flounder tend to grow bigger than Torridge estuary Flounder?
