Another bash at the wrasse

The tide times looked good so i headed for Burntisland for another go at the wrasse  . At lowtide i first dug some lug and even managed a few king rag. With the bait dug plus some prawn and of course the power-isome and gulp  sandworms i set of for a bit dropshotting. At first bites were hard to come by the sea was  a bit green looking  for my liking and i wondered if the lack of clarity was a factor. Before long i hit into a wrasse but i just couldnt stop him and and he broke me, Think it was a good one .

A few nice ones followed though all the way up to high tide on small sections of lug and rag , the prawn only seemed to get the interest of the odd sea scorpion .








 My wee shimano alivio reel is playing up a bit , so a new  Aernos is in the post.  On this occasion the goldsinnys didnt show, though they have on previous trips .

and there has been a oddity or two as well including this wee fellae which i think is a Yarrel's blenny?

  4. Don't know much about this fish, but looking at it it appears to be quite a fighter.

    1. Thanks Alan, they tend to head for snags as soonas there hooked so tends to be "hit and hold" tactics sometimes though they win.

  7. In the inside right in the corner scott. That's a course net , I've got a 3 m handle to be honest a dropnet is going to have to be another purchase for myself.

    1. Thanks for the info Col! I will have a go tomorrow.

      I've got a drop net but it's huge. Had a course fishing 4m net handle but broke it. They're just not designed for lifting fish up any kind of height. Any half decent fish thrashing will break them. I also found that even 4m wasn't long enough at times.
