Hi Kevin welcome to the forum. I have learned so much from here and so I am sure you will soon know enough to get that first fish. I would suggest get in touch with Ben Field and visit his new shop when you get down next. I can vouch that Ben is a very experienced angler and a really top fella. I am sure he will be able to advise you.

The Art of fishing (Bens shop) is one of the adverts on this site.

Thanks mate! You knew you would! Good work!! :D

Definitely Kev, if you're in the area let me know and we'll go out for a few hours. Had half a dozen yesterday so they are here. Let me know your plans and I'll check with Jo that I'm allowed out to play!

Thanks Kev. Like I've said elsewhere, it was a pleasure. Conditions were poop so getting one schoolie out was about the best we could muster. Next time...

I only really got into serious bass fishing Kevin about four years ago. I am now addicted to it. There is so much to learn and this site is perhaps the best place to learn.

Hi Kev, I also managed to hook myself onto lure fishing before actually hooking with a lure (well, in terms of a Bass anyway!) Different circumstances for me, as it was quicker (and easier) to hop on a plane and get to Jersey, than to drive to anywhere that I felt more confident to succeed. Hooked up with Jersey Bass Guides and caught my first ever lure Bass (6lb 10oz.) Lure fishing, collecting lures, and trying to digest all the good info on this site is infectious - enjoy!

Hi Kevin, There is a bit of bass lure fishing a little to the west of me, but it realy starts to look up in North Devon, though Dorset and South Devon would be a similar distance for you. Jersey Bass Guides as mentioned by Tony, is a great site, go give it a google!

Hi Kevin, Re North Devon, it"s all good, but rocky areas around the surf beaches, Woolacombe,Croyde,Saunton,Westward Ho! would be a good place to start. The Taw/Torridge estuary would be an excellent venue if it blows up rough (rocks are tough at the best of times,esp when you don"t know your way around) + it"s got good numbers of smaller fish.
I dont get down there too often, and am by no means an expert! Check out the South West catch reports and see what the locals are up to!
If I'm going down that way I'll give you shout. ( South Wales might also be good for you + locals seem friendly!)
