....how about an invite for Guns?
I was pretty new to lure fishing this summer, and Nige was really helpfull, showing me the ropes & passing on loads of good advice.
exactly the sort of chap that would fit in on here.
We need to lure (can you see what i did there!!) him back before he is lost forever to worms and peeler traps!

As far as I know he has been asked, if someone could PM him on wsf and give him a link it would be great, I am sure I asked him though. I dont go on wsf anymore as I am the bad man.

I'm in :jump:

Don't worry Jez mate, I will never be lost to crab and ragworm (although I caught 67 flounders today with a mate in 3 hours!), lure fishing is my main love and I'm only passing time till the water clears up.
Thanks for putting up the post it was nice to see coming on here for the first time.
As for me showing you the ropes, I feel you are a natural and took to it like a duck to water. :laserswords:

You had a crack at them on the lures yet Guns? With that many fish about it sounds the perfect chance.....

No I haven't Ben but today would have been an ideal opportunity. I may have to do it soon before they disappear again. A friend brought me back some soft plastics from Oz a few months ago for me to have a crack at them but haven't put them to use yet.

Sounds perfect. Little bream type jobbies? Let us know how you get on. Don't think many have had much of a go at it yet. If it works out then maybe I'll get myself up to your neck of the woods. Not quite sure where to try for the flounder round here to be honest. Not really fished for them before.

The soft plastics my mate bought me were called "squidgies".
I fish a lot for flounder this time of the year and travel to find specimens. Isn't the Fowey down your neck of the woods? Great river for flounder and bass and the water always seems clearer down that way, so even a better chance again of success on the lure.

Yeah, other coast though. Still, if thats where the fish are gonna be then I'll head down that way. The Camel is really close so I'll start there. If I can figure out where they are.

Camel is good as well.
Flounder like to feed in shallow water and lay up in little depressions on the river bed (pits). Fish either side of low water will help you to find them as they will have dropped back into the main channels at this time, so are easier to locate then. They like the sandy bases as well as the muddy ones so give it a go. Work the lure slowly though.
Cheers Nigel.

Just one last thing to mention about the flounder we caught today, very nearly all were returned to fight another day.

Up where Nigel is would be a great place to have a proper go at smashing flounders on plastics - as he says, they can get insane numbers up there. Caught my first ever flounder on a plastic over in Ireland in October, and if I can catch one, anybody can !!!!

Bet it would be a bit of a blast nailing a few on lures.
