Sitges

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…

Sitges

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…

Sitges

Had a great day at sea yesterday with perfect weather and plenty fish. One of the first up was this nice and round small Bluefin…

Then by lots of fortune found a floating tree…

Was full of life below it and I had several Wreckfish, a new species for me…

Bit best of all 6 really nice Dorado caught spinning a small baitfish lookalike casting lure…

Heres a couple…

I eventually moved on but before coming  home took a final drive past and sure enough the rod closest arched over for the biggest of the day…

Sitges

Had a long day out in the sun today and it was great just to see these small Blue-Fin Tuna smashing into baitfish, flying out of the water, going totally airborne and cartwheeling through the sky.

They are the same age fish we caught earlier in the summer – but when they were much smaller – this is how fast they pack on the pounds and mature.

Best of all I caught four…!

Seen underwater they look to be made of the same liquid metal that Cyborgs are made of in  Terminator films…

Sitges

Stayed close to the shore this morning as the sea was pretty choppy. Didn’t need to go far out anyway as there were fish, baitfish and seagulls diving everywhere. Had a few Scad and 20 to 30 of these chunky Amberjack, all caught by either  trolling or spinning small metal lures.
