Andy P and myself had a few trips to the rocks this weekend. Andy christened his new rod with a Bass on Saturday night, and plenty of Wrass yesterday. Last Night i managed a Bass of arround 5lb, whilst unhooking the fish i noticed the tail of a Mackerel in it throat. I pulled it out to find a Horse Mackerel of arround 3/4 of a pound swallowed head first!! It still amazes me as to the size of pray a Bass will hit, i have caught school Bass on sand eels twice there size, but was astonished by this..

Nice one on the fish Gaz. Amazing what they get in their mouths sometimes. Certainly doesnt make me think twice about using 20cm+ lures.

More interestingly, the Scad are in! LRF speedster target acquired!

nice one on the catch

Is interesting to see that the fish would actually think it could swallow another bait with its mouth allready full of scad!

Well done Gaz,

I have recently purchased a Z-Claw Magnum and thought it might be a bit on the big side, but after seeing that Mackerel being pulled out I think it will be fine !!!

Thanks everyone, there is no way that the fish could have swallowed anything, so was suprised that it took a 6 inch Sidewinder!
