Went under the old castle today with the dog for a long overdue bit of wrasse fishing, something i haven't done in quite a while.
Seem to forget how fun it can be when they are feeding well and today they were.....quickly snaffled all of my worm.
Caught ten and most were a good average of about 2 lb with the best 2 going 3 lb 8 and 4 lb 1.
The biggest made it to its shelter for a minute or so but slack line saw it try to escape and i got it.
great fun and a new pb
gonna try with some crab next time

He speaks the truth. Whole crab. Tie it with elastic. I like to add some Berkley Gulp Spray. Literally soak the thing! Set the stop just above the weed. Can end up with some nice fish. My old man caught a 6 pounder just this year. Took half an hour to bring the thing in!

Not that weird mate. Ballan wrasse will take sandeel or other fishbaits, although worm and crab will catch far more. They will often take a plug too.
