I do a lot of lure fishing, and one of the benefits, as you can see from the lead image, is that you get to travel very light indeed.
In my latest session, which courtesy of still being on furlough, was my thirtieth so far in July, I was pursuing perch.
As well as my target species, I also banked a very interesting item indeed. All is revealed in the video.
The tackle I fished with was as follows: Fox Rage Ultron drop shot rod, Fox Rage Ultron 2500 reel, 10lb Sunline braid on reel.
Fox Rage Illusion fluorocarbon 10lb 3oz (2 metres) joined to the braid with a small swivel.
Fox Rage micro jig head 1g size 4 hook. Berkley powerbait 2 inch rubber minnow. All knots (3) blood knots.
Thinking of getting into some lure fishing. How far are you casting with that small rod?
Hello, Jonathan. Even with the 1g jig-head I can get 20 metres comfortably, when conditions are good. Braid helps though.
A great way of fishing, I’d recommend it.
