3 of us fished Fret Point last night. This is a big rocky ledge that sticks it's nose right out into the sea on our SW coastline. It's not a million miles away from some good Pollack ground but last night, whilst conditions were good, proved hard.

4 fish taken.

Mark Sleep took 3 of the 4.



Mark's Pollack. Just 1 of 3. Mark sat on a point where the tide was pushing over a submerged raised ledge. We had a few bites we just couldn't hit ?
Tide was really moving on the 38ft'er.



Weighted hook, hitch hiker and black curly tail retrieved at a painfully SLOW speed.



I wasn't going to be beaten back. Fish were there, Mark had proven that. On the drop techniques just pushed your gear into the under water ravines and gear loss was inevitable.
Come to papa Mr Bombarda and my get out of the Yamashita lure, the Worm Bake II. Nice Pollack taken on this method. Solid hookup too.



9ft 5lb flourocarbon leader, size 10 hooks, Yamashita worm bake's and a 10g sinking Bombarda fished 1, 2, 3 (slowly) the pause, 2, 3. I got whacked on the pause.

Another eventful yet challenging night. I prefer it to be hard sometimes as it makes you think. Mark did really well breaking his first triple fish on a session. Well done bud.

Keith, is that a boom type thing you were using below the Bombarda? I should have come over to see how you had it set up really, and how you were casting. My Bombardas have just arrived. I was just going to use it butting against a small swivel, maybe a little rubber buffer bead, and a float stop up the line to hold it in place.

The other couple of fish I had were on the 3 inch 'Yum' white paddletail shads, on 5g ball jighead.

PS. My pics were a shower of shite, need to practice!

Mark:

Do nothing, just bring them and if you have it, some narrow 'hard' boom tube, beads and swivels.
There are a couple of ways we set these up.

I might suggest you invest in some winders too as you can have rigs ready to fly. You saw how much time it took me to re-thread the braid through the now 'wet' bombarda tube and, i didn't have a spare. I also rig them on 20lb shock line, ready to clip to plug clips. Winder out, unravel, off you go.

I tend to carry slow sink and sink only early season. Casting is 'Skagit' style and a slower rod is preferable but not essential.

As you now know, taking pics balanced on a ledge, pitch black etc, ain't easy.
Wait till you go skishing and we ask you to take a pic after chasing a guy down with a 50 meter swim, heart racing, holding a rod, finning the current, being in a completely fluid environment !!

Now that is tough.

See you Wed.

PS:

Well done for last night. I told you every dog has his day.
