Waterfall and Guinea Gap

Postby Big Hitter » Wed Dec 20, 2017 9:16 pm

Decided on a quick session at the waterfall at Seacombe Ferry end of prom.
Plan was to fish 3hrs after high and fish it down to low using only crab on a pennel.
I had 3 fish in 3 casts of around 1 1/2lb and then lost 3 sets of gear on 3 casts, time for a move.
I walked upto the slip at Guinea Gap and fished just to the right of it on the beach.
First cast was another small Codling of about 1lb.
I decided to fish at maximum distance and it resulted in this

A nice conditioned fish around 3 1/2lb, and it gave a really good account of itself.
That was the biggest fish of the session. I ended up with 7 fish between 1lb to 3 1/2lb.
Really nice night to be on the river

I fished a fixed spool down the rod tonight for a change and really enjoyed it. Something I may do more of in the future.

Cracking session Jamie :clap: :clap: I'm looking at that rod at the moment (Taktika). It gets great reviews and supposed to heave a cracking sensitive tip, how do you find it stands up to the Mersey?

Hi mate,
The Taktika is superb, really powerful and like you said has a lovely tip. I only really use it with 4oz if I’m casting hard but it will handle 6oz no problem but I think 4oz is its best lead. The rod holds up well in the tide run as I only really use 12lb line with it. Tonight I used it with 4oz lead on a clipped pennel and 16lb line with a 50lb leader and it was fine. To be honest it’s one of the nicest conti Rods I’ve used and I’d certainly recommend one.
Your more than welcome to have a go of mine before you buy.
Bonners bait and Tackle has the full range of Vercelli rods in and will beat anyone’s price on em. :thumbsup:
