hi all


Going on holiday for a week in south cornwall and have rock marks left and right....im going to try to fish as much of the marks as i can with all different tactics, for different species...i have heard that there are nice wrasse to be had and that bass and pollock come in close to these marks often....and i was just wondering if you could give me some advice on how to fish for these species with the greatest success...wrasse what rig,bait ? pollock jelly worm ? bass plug ?


also...


is it worth lure fishing for bass pollock off chesil ( abbotsbury,west bexington ) without getting hassled by macks...any special tactics required to specifically target these species?




comments and thoughts appreciated....

Wrasse will take crabs and rag, either ledgered or float fished and will also take flying c lures as well. Pollack will take float fished rag as well as a variety of lures and sand eels.

Anywhere between the main Falmouth beaches and the mouth of the helford will throw up more or less anything, float fished rag, eel, or crab is a favourite cos then I loose less tackle. We took the kids out for a fish n camp last week end and ended up with allsorts inc a dover sole caught 20 yards out. Small to mid sized plugs should start to be a bit more productive anyday now around the rocks...

Get a bubble float and live eels if you can and you'll be laughing.
That or Rapala X-Rap's are pretty deadly, i use the SXR-10 SBM or bigger. Either of these will be ideal for bass or pollock.
But wrasse will take the live eels too, if you just want to target wrasse then i agree with the others above that floating a bait close to the bottom would be best.
