John Shapland is a dedicated mullet angler and spends many hours pursuing both thin and thick lipped grey mullet. His latest session proved very rewarding with John banking a brace of thin lips using ragworm baited spinners both specimens scaling 4lb 8oz and 4lb. later in the day John swapped tactics to tempt a 3lb 7oz thick lip on bread flake.

Scott Andries, Matt Jeffery and his son Joshua enjoyed a mullet fishing session in the estuary where they all enjoyed success with baited spinners.  Joshua landed his first of the species a specimen of 4lb 6oz that stands a good chance of winning a Junior trophy with Combe Martin SAC. Matt Jeffery’s best mullet of the session scaled 4lb 5oz and Scott Andreis’s mullet 3lb 4oz.

(Above) Ollie Passmore tempted this fine specimen thin lipped grey mullet weighing 4lb 8oz on a baited spinner in the river Taw Estuary.

Ollie Passmore with a stunning wrasse caught on a recent session. I suspect wrasse fishing will slow down for a few days after the rough and windy weekend. I suspect we will see a few big bass, smoothound and huss in the coloured water, don’t be afraid to use a big bait oozing plenty of scent!
