After all the stuff I've been reading about peoples recent LRF sessions, I've been chomping at the bit to get out and try it. Not picked up the necessary tackle yet, but thought I'd pop out with the lightest and smallest gear I've got.

3'' Big Hammer, 3g jig was as light as I could manage. Not ideal, but had just enough feel through my rod to detect knocks and taps and then hooked into this monster!!!


Hardly bigger than the lure! Now that's just greedy!

Was missing loads and loads of bites, some of which felt completely different to the next. Can't wait to sort the correct bits out, scale down the lures and have a bit of fun. Great to get out after work for an hour, wouldn't have time to go for a proper Bass session but this is perfect to let off a bit of steam.

Just remember, they won't all be small and the more you progress and get away from the 'obvious' under the light zones, the more lure patterns and catch rates will differ.
We had Pollack to 5lb and Bass over 7lb on LRF gear this year so BE READY.

well done though and there ain't no going back now.
