Hints and tips for fishing wrecks on the drift.

Postby JohnSLocker » 16 Sep 2018, 11:23

Planned to take advantage of the neap tides and headed out for a go at some wrecks I’d checked out on a recent sharking trip. What a day to remember. Here’s the vid. A fantastic PB and hopefully a few hints and tips in there to help you catch yours.

No problem mate. I have done a video on how to make my "Wrecking rig" you'll be able to find it on my channel if you haven't see it already. ;)

Glad I could help mate. It’s much better fished on neap tides. If you’re up Scotland/Shetland where the truly big fish live you could try using a pirk instead of a lead. Just be careful. You don’t want 3 on at the same time.lol

:thumb: Cheers John. Younger in cheek, I did use a pink on the bottom last summer in Scotland and I hooked Mother Earth at least 6 times and lost the rigs on each occasion.

I used to on major trips on Royal Charlotte and Portia with Mick @ Jim Coker, in th3 lat3 90s and early 2000s, and was the best cod fishing alive ever had. I don’t think it’s as good now as then and Shetland, and Norway seem to be the places for monsters nowadays.

Anyway maybe a few tips ma8, on home made jigs and parks in the future.

:D Cheers John, and Tight Lines. If I visit my sister on the south coast any time, Pompey way, 7 min drive from Langston Harbour, Ill give you a shout time and weather permitting etc. There’s a few good boats that go into the English Channel.

I am planning on doing a vid on jigs and pirks soon so I’ll see what info I can put in for you. I do have a bit of a solution that caused less losses ;)

I’m based down in Cornwall but do have a friend with a charter boat in gosport. Phenomenal boat and skipper, let me know and I’ll put you in touch. ;)

:thumb: John, I hope you and the family are doing well. The year is flying by and spring and summer are not far away.

In terms of fishing purely for herrings, do you make your own micro glitter, flash lures , sabbiki type lures?

I’ve caught herrings only by chance when going for mackerel, andoften get some big launch. As I like herrings to eat and also top bait, this year I was thinking of purposely targeting these fish during part of future boat sessions.

Thanks ma8. Tight Lines! :thumb: :fish:
