Bass session.

Recommended Posts

Took Green Lurchers out for a few hours trolling a few Rapala's in search of a few Bass,me and a pal have a small boat and a spot which does quite well on a dropping tide so we sorted a trip for sunday. We set off in lovely conditions with high water just about there so we had a hour or so to just chug around and see if we could pick up something before the tide ran hard,my pal was first to hook up and poor old GL's face when it went back as it was a tad under size as he had his cool box already open and was dribbling at the chops with the thought of fresh Bass on a barbee :laugh:,well the tide turned and the fish started to turn up with both GL and my pal getting a few.I in the end did get in on the action myself and landed a couple.We trolled about and with a easterly wind there was a swell pushing in and what with the tide against it we had a few bow in the air moments but nothing to worry about to much as my pal sure does know how to steer a boat,but anyway we carried on and had regular hook ups with some small un's and some good un's and some losses by the side of the boat like you do sometimes :doh:.But we had time for one last trip round the sand banks and who should push his luck with his manners :whistling: as not only had lent him my new rod and reel for the day but also had given him the lure that does the job :yes: but he only went and hooked into the fish of the day and what a cracking fish it was to ,it took some line and i'm sure he was milking it up somewhat but in the end he got it close enough for me  to slip the net under it and get it aboard.A truely cracking  afternoon in good company,good weather,good fish and good sport :toast:..

The pics of the day i'm sure he'll put up and to be honest i only did this post so he would put them up as i'm sick of waiting to have my nose rubbed in it on here..:laugh:

Sea bass emergency ring the fireman 🚒. Only ever eaten wild sea bass and as the lads offered I see the chance to spend a few hr trying to catch and cook a line caught  bass  , it wer a great day on the water  and felt at home diy trolling  around   In search of possibly one of the finest tasting fish around , thanks again for a great day a pleasure it was 👍as for the pics  didn’t get many  . But sat down in the local Chinese restaurant struck a deal inc beer they steamed us half poured extra hot oil on the fish with ginger and spring onion steamed rice and pak Choi  absolutely amazing deffo food porn lol

Nice write up fireman and GL photo's. Nice when a plan comes together. I'm sure that tasted as good as it looks.

Oh by the way GL finding lots of Samphire up the estuary's, would have gone well with them Bass.

Cheers Arry
