Caldy/Seacombe

Postby Tom » Mon Nov 13, 2017 10:04 pm

Sunday, fished 2.5hrs up at Caldy.

I've not really tried here before, but seeing the report of a few Flounder gave me confidence to try it out.

I used scraggly frozen blowlug/black lug on two hook flapper.

At first it was huge balls of weed which was a bit of a suprise and the wind was a bit wild. But I stuck too it!

Later as the tide roared in with the night, I landed my first ever Caldy fish! A little Whiting within 15mins of casting :dance:

Thankfully found wind shelter on a rock for a seat making the venue more appealing. Soon after next cast another Whiting. Wonder if anyone has had a Codling off here?

Then after not blanking and it beginning to freeze, packed up with goal ticked off :thumbsup:



Tonight fished 2hrs up, 1 down, further down from the Ferry.

Arrived a little late due to traffic. Cast from 10-40yds throughout the session to try and find a Codling.

Using pre made lug n mack combos on a 5/0 pulley pennel.

About 20mins in came a Whiting and a few more during the flood.. but no more luck after the turn.. ideally I should have had a two hook flapper on the carp rod on the side about 10yds out.

I did manage to weave out a huge snag in return for the effort came in a Gemini lead :D

Besides me, four other anglers were on the Dabs and Whiting.. but was pretty slow for all it seemed, but expected this time of year :santa:

A nice bit of rod knocking action. Just a shame the flounder and coddos didn't put in a shame.

I know that to be true but I did some reading about it, turns out use-able if you freeze very quickly.

If you set live unsqueezed blow lug (big ones) on your newspaper and then drop a sheet of clingfilm on top, sectioning them off individually, then once wrapped I foil them for a fast freeze. It seems to fish pretty well, only close in casting on a high tide. Have had micro plaice, micro cod, rockling, flounder, and whiting take it, fish a cast, on the carp rod at Vale Park in September.

Also worth doing if you pre-make baits with elastic, then freeze them.. keeps the mack going for a bit longer.
A plate does the business really quick :thumbsup:

After those sessions I'm changing focus to the Pike :love:

A twitched frozen Sprat is apparently the bees knees.. So maybe me and Piotrek might have a report up on that, see what pans out :thumbsup:

This is the only example I had, I freeze yellow tails, I think that's the most accurate name for the lug I'm on about

My mistake I thought yellow tails were adult blow lug this whole time :lol: learning curve lads :doh:

Yellowtails don't freeze as well as blacks either but they are slightly better than blow.

Nice one Ste :thumbsup: Were you and your Dads Flounders on hardback or peelers?
-
Agreed Steve, they do break up easier than black lug.. but I like experimenting with my fishing and will try out the kettle thawing method next time and see if it really works :think:
