In all of the types of fishing that I have tried there is nothing like lure fishing for sea bass with light tackle, jumping from rock to rock trying to get your lure in all the crooks and crannies.
It can be one of the most satisfying ways of fishing yet in can crush you at the same time it makes you think all the time ,am I retrieving it right, have I got the right lure on, and this can drive you mad!!

Take it from me to catch sea bass by the lure is to firstly get the right equipment, getting this right is half the battle. The rod should be about 10ft at least so you can get a bit more control over the fish when fishing in weedy and rocky areas, When fishing in these hard ground areas I tend to use 30lb braid now this can be a bit expensive but believe me its worth it, it is so responsive it changes your fishing experience, if you haven’t tried it yet give it a blast…..

Now for the lures, I have bought hundreds in my time and wasted a lot of money doing so but on the other hand have gained some valuable knowledge its so basic I wish someone had told me right at the beginning if you fish by these simple tips your catch rate will increase..

Ready here goes its like this, if your fishing on a nice sunny day try using a nice bright lure I tend to fish with Dexter wedges they are the best for there money and if the fish are there then they normally produce .

And if your fishing an overcast day fish using a dark lure,Makeral reparla are amazing I highly rate these lures, even though they are a bit more expensive they are well worth there money also try and move as much as you can this will improve your catch rate ,fish don’t tend to stay in the same place there always on the move looking for pray..

Some of you may have heard this before but not a lot of people know this and are missing out on extra catches, so if you haven’t then give it a go and let us know how you get on. Also try and fish early evening on a high tide this will increase your chances even more, after applying these little helpful tips the rest is down to you so good luck and happy fishing..
