A look back on last season.

A Belated Happy New Year To You 🙂

Just like that we are back at the beginning of another year, how quickly did that season go eh? Only felt like a few weeks ago we were hitting those early spring Bass and hoping for an epic season. . .

Hope To See You Again In 2012

A quick reflection:

Spring
Started well and fished well up until the Ban. Good quantity and quality of fish were landed and released early April to mid May. Hitting the hard and soft plastics with venom.
There was no consistent pattern to the preferred lure type, they seemed to hit most lures when presented correctly.

Summer
Started slow with quantities landed down on previous years. A slight peak in catches in the last two weeks in July before the Bass done their usual August lure avoidance act!.  The fish appeared to be more timid with there takes during this period.
The Wrasse fishing really picked up with some decent size fish taking soft plastics fished slow.
Soft plastic picked up the majority of the coy fish during this period.

Autum
The weather played havoc with any planned trips but when we did manage a session we got some decent fishing in with good quality Bass Wrasse and Pollock landed from shore and boat.
Hard plastics fished very well during this period.

Winter
We managed a few fish in the first two weeks of November before the blanks arrived and we called it a year on the lures.
Soft Plastics accounting for the fish we encountered.

My last fish of 2011

Two most successful lures I used in 2011 was:

Thanks for taking time to have a look at the Blog in 2011.

I did not get out as much as I wanted to in 2011, so the quantity of posts was lower than I would have liked but sure there is always 2012 to get back on track. Barry has just started 2012 with a BANG ….report to follow.

Your next one could be your best one.
