Lure fishing

Postby lcn » 29 Sep 2017, 06:59

Does anyone lure fish the coast round Blackpool , fleetwood and morecambe areas , I’m not asking for any marks just wondered if it’s worth doing up here or whether I’ll need to travel a bit further afield . I’ve seen that gerrys sell a bit of lure fishing gear so I’m assuming someone must be doing it .

There is a lot of colour in the water more or less all the time. I know lure fishing is best in clearer water but I guess poppers and rattling lures might work.

No but trawling the internet I came across a few posts on various forums about lure fishing up here and although they catch a few fish it just doesn’t seem to be that popular

I thought the water clarity was probably the reason it’s not that popular up here . Next time I go somewhere like morecambe or silverdale I’m going to take an ultralight set up and have a go for the flatties and see how that goes and if I do alright I’ll go back and have a proper go roving about with just the lures

Arnside/ New Barns is always worth a chuck at low water. The imitation white rag seems to do the trick. Tight lines.

I've lure fished on the ribble with my son if you can call it lure fishing that is ..I've used plastic worm and shrimp I've soaked them in bait scent and also placed a glass rattle inside them I've had limited success with flatties by adding the rattles

which helped as sight is limited so add sound scent and twitch the lure adding movement and it worked ...no different then fishing for pike in murky water on a canal ((((just my opinion by the way )))) I've also had limited luck with a mepps mullet spinner removed the treble replaced with a flattie hook with white gulp plastic worm with a glass rattle added...I will have a bash with a mepps flying c next year in the ribble up the estuary ...good luck mate :thumb:
