Anchorsholme Smooth-hound Search Results in Bass

Last weekend the weather looked perfect for our first 2012 attempt at catching a Smooth-hound from one of our local beaches. So with 20 prime peeler crab from Gerry’s of Morecambe (where we got some new lure rods at the same time – more on these to follow) we arrived at Anchorsholme around 7pm, grabbed the gear from the car and waded over the large gully to fish the tide two hours down and two back up again. Considering it [... read rest of post]

Well finally we’re getting a bit of cooler weather and this coming weekend the signs are good for our first proper Cod hunt up at either Fleetwood or Blackpool, Lancashire. Three different weather websites are giving almost the same forecast of strong westerly winds dropping slightly on Saturday night with no rain. The tides are going to be high and the peak of high water is at about 9.30pm. Westerly winds, lo-pressure and a night time high tide – a [... read rest of post]
