Going to be a quick blog post to keep everyone up to date, A lot of the flounder marks around Weymouth have really started to heat up now, hitting them on lures is a challenge but once you nail it proves a huge amount of fun, I suggest for anyone looking to target these species to try with good old fashioned bait tactics until you have confidently found their feeding grounds. Check out Mr James Fulton Standley here with a healthy looking flounder he caught last week, I believe he was using his Major Craft Zalts LRF rod with a 3.5 cone weight with a small Aberdeen hook and ragworm, I turned up to watch the last 30 seconds of James battling out this flounder.
Soon after Simons Flounder I managed to hook up this stunning sand smelt another new LRF species to my 2012 list, Looking at this picture you can really see why so many of the mullet pattern lures work over sandy beaches like Weymouth and Ringstead, Just check out the reflective colours of this fish.
Here`s Lolly with the final fish of the day, a stunning typical Portland Wrasse, Both me an lolly have been using the New XL isome, which so far has been an absolute game changer of bait Lure hybrid! I can’t wait to see this stuff hit the shelves.
Until the next time...
