A new bass account opens – Early May 2017

A new bass account opens – Early May 2017

The last few weeks of the very early season have been a very busy time for me. From private dining to foraging and food days out its been great.

I have been joined by some wonderful people from as far away as L.A and Milan over the first May bank holiday. It seems people are now starting to take some notice of what I am doing and they are coming to enjoy the environmentally influenced food that I am producing.

The main focus for me on this post entry will be focused on the bass and wrasse angling from one day out on the coast over the weekend just gone.

The first weekend of the bass lure angling days was a success and within a few casts Dave Carron a good friend and regular client was into his first bass of the season. I was ecstatic for Dave as he really works hard on his lure fishing. It was also my birthday on the day we were out so the first sight of silver really made my day.

Dave Carron - Happy with the first bass of 2017.

The first bass clients of the season arrived this weekend just gone and the fist bar of silver was caught and successfully released.

The first bass of the season tearing line from the spool and taking a run.

Almost there with the fish – A final run just before we landed the bass, unhooked it and we got it swimming off again.

Dave carron - Holding a bass.

A nice sized fish of around the 5lb mark. I love the way bass change colour over different ground. Their camouflage mechanism always fills me with wonder.

Wrasse landed in a pool.

Dave’s other catch of the day a nice sized Ballan wrasse is always a welcome sight. I love getting clients to target the hard fighting wrasse on my days out. The techniques used sometimes require patience but the rewards on some days can be very good.

 I am keeping this blog post short as I am trying to get things ready for the weekend with more guests arriving, and theres lots to arrange around my outdoor living lifestyle. I am also itching to get some personal fishing done while I can.

Stay posted and don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you want to experience some wonderful days out.
