Sitges

Out again this morning but not in the calmest of seas. Pulled around some small Williamson trolling lures which tempted 6 Amberjack & a solitary Mackerel. Also tempted 4 Dorado casting small jigs at buoys & floating debris. They’re getting bigger..!

A pleasure to be out on the boat this morning as September & October really are the nicest months of the year. Found the sea to be alive with Dorado everywhere there was structure, debris, buoys etc.

Sometimes I can catch them…

Sometimes the pleasure is all about the acrobatics and watching them escape…

In the next month these should almost double in size, from 1.5 to 3kgs. Roll on October…!

Summer is drawing to a close over here, its mid September now but the fishing is hopefully coming to a peak. Took a ride out this morning and along with a couple of small Tuna the Dorado are here – not big yet but as we get to the end of October they should be twice the size. All on the same lure today – a multi coloured Williamson…

One thing in this picture is really cool but it´s not the strange dude in the shades…. Trolling, Summer, Sitges, Tuna.

Cuba

Back again to heaven but boy, did I work hard for my big Barracuda. Kate found it child´s play…

Adlington Canal

A visit home isn’t really complete without a trip down to the canal. Whilst everyone was asleep on Sunday morning I was getting in some practice for Cuba and manged three of these freshwater Barracuda on a small, boring coloured Rapala X-Rap. In a weeks time hope to be telling tales of their saltwater cousins…

We found this little guy way out at sea today, a lot further from home that he should have been. He took a rest with us for a while, tagged along for the ride back then left a little luck my way in the form of this Bonito. First proper fish of the year and we’ll eat well tonight…

Sitges Easter Weekend

Weather Gods were seemingly unhappy with my plans for the well anticipated start to the fishing season, a full week chasing Tuna, and threw 40mph winds at us turning the sea into the same consistency and colour as that what we normally see off Blackpool…

Still, there’s always something biting deep in the harbour…

Next weekend must surely be better…

Adlington Canal

Sneaked in a couple of quick sessions during this weekends trip back… but could only stay as long as I could feel my fingers. Freezing temperature, a howling wind and horizontal drizzle weren’t too encouraging and it really was as cold as it looked. No blank though with a couple of usual sized Pike, both on small Rapala X-Raps.

Sitges

Back out this Friday morning after some great days over these last few weeks.

Was neither cloudy or sunny and it felt like a final day before the season here finishes, winter draws in and we have that long wait till Easter.

Had several small Tuna along the way… also had another Dorado casting at floating debris… missed something big that arched a rod over as we passed more debris (likely another late season Dorado)… but all is well…

Childs play right now…
