Tell us how you get on mate, hopefully you can put all the tips to good use. There should be a few pollack and coalies around as i had a few last week over the south west coast, including a few decent fish to nearly 4lb. I can't get this weekend as i decided to go to the footy today (a good choice as we won 3-2!), but work have asked me to go in tomorrow and i need the overtime. Did you get your braid spooled up in the end correctly mate? and which lures did you buy?

They work a treat mate, Fladen also do they in blue and green in 4'' and 6'' lengths for £2.99 for 10. I have had some of my better fish on them, also taken a couple of unexpected bass on them too which is a bonus.

Well done mate! Your first pollack and a decent coaley to boot. I see you used the Odessa how did you get on with it? Are those the Jelltex eels aswell mate? I have used them before off the boat and they are damn good. Somedays you can switch between all the methods i have told you about and catch fish on all of them which makes it a really interesting session. All i can say is that its going to get better soon, then you will hopefully get many more pollack and some specimen sized fish.

Did you read my PM? Try the float fishing next time if your arms start to get tired, although the rod is light it starts to tire your arms out after a while. Floats are pretty cheap at around £1.50, although i have found most of mine washed up onshore and simply re-used them or repainted the tip. If you want even better pollack sport then you could try using a carp rod or light spinning rod. I use either a Daiwa Powermesh 2.5lb t.c. carp rod or a Nash Hooligun 2.75lb t.c. carp rod with a Shimano 6000 GTE and they are a lot of fun for the pollack as well as for catching big wrasse too!

Thats a good fish Davy. The black and pink ones take fish well, but i can't really work out why as they dont really imitate any bait fish? Other good lures such as the Tempest shads and holographic eels look very lifelike. I see that Abu Krill lures also look a lot like a small sandeel. Why the black firetail lures work is beyond me all i can think is that they look like lugworm perhaps and stand out well. The Berkley replicate rag worm i have tried did not seem to work to well for pollack though, and they would surely replicate them better i thought?
