was chatting to an extrawlerman (hi informed me) today in Swansea marina that 12 bass were brought in earlier caught on rapalas trolling in the bay upto about 3lb.
He went on to tell me that that one of his mates down west had 4 small tuna in his net upto about 10lb. If it is true what could we be fishing for in the next 10 years?
Who would of thought 10 year ago we could catch Trigger fish regulary off the mumbles in the future.
Who is up for a spot of Marlin fishing off the Swigg!!!!

Me and a_bozzy had a good few last summer best marks are around the gower area. That is most probly true about the 12 bass as the guy was most prob trolling 3 rapalas. The only reason why he shouldn have had 12 bass doing this is if the bass aint here in numbers yet. So who knows!:g:

I hooked a small tuna (I think) or bonito off Roscoff in Brittany on the fly a couple of years ago lost it on the surface after a 15 minute battle on a 11 wt fly rod!It was like being attached to a super charged vibrator!Could only have been 2-3lb.
The local fishing boats landed a few small tuna 2 days later,Brittany is less than 100 miles from British waters.

A very good friend of mine hooked and lost at the boat a Barracuda of about 8 lbs. I wasn`t there but everyone on the boat saw it and my mate for one ain`t got the imagination to think that one up...sorry Paul if you happen to see this! This happened about 6 years ago and was while they were drifting the Manacles.
