Started well

17.11.13,  6am, someplace in Dorset. The rod slammed over, big head-shakes all the way in and a little disappointed to find it was only 52cm. The lure was inhaled, back of the throat job. A good start, and a false one.

I don't mind to much, this time of year you have to acknowledge the numbers will drop,
the hope is the size will increase dramatically.

Last Few Weeks

Numbers if not size have picked up over the last few trips. Catching fish consistently at night, catching on softs, and in particular, catching on the Fiiish Black Minnow are new experiences for me.

This seasons seen a different approach to our fishing, bumping softs on the bottom, and fishing in the dark, neither of which match the excitement of having a Bass smash your lure on the surface in daylight. But you can't argue with the success other's in our group have had (if not me) and it looks like these methods will be a major part of our fishing for the foreseeable future.

A 3 pounder caught at dusk, again demonstrating my ability to make a fish look smaller.
