Caught a Nice Couple of Bass in North Cornwall...

...well strictly speaking I watched while Maximus caught them. Having never had Bass before I baked one tonight whole, stuffed with Dill, Lemon, Parsley and Garlic....what a delicious fish

We caught three in total, a couple of 5/6 pounders and a slightly smaller one.

Learnt a lot from watching Maximus and will be getting myself a spinning rod and some plugs ASAP !

Nice fish try them steamed with fresh ginger & spring onions. Just before you serve it, heat some sesame oil to smoking in a pan & pour it over the fish, crisps the skin up a treat.

Nice Bass!

Did better than Whisper and myself yesterday. All we had was a couple of Doggies and lines full of red weed.

Nice.
I've never caught Bass above surface. Are welding goggles and a daft hat required kit?

Before I met up with Whisper, he and his family had been drifting Southampton water with some small micro feathers and caught some decent sized Herrings and a couple of Mackies. Perfect for the BBQ or for smoking.
