Only a few weekends ago I managed to get out and feed my addiction to Rock Pigs and got out on my 2013 first rock hopping session! Now these Ballans literally drive me mad and the shocking latter part of 2012 and early '13 was a killer for my favourite type of lure fishing so soon as conditions allowed me and Andy Green hit south Devon on my usual marks looking for some early season Wrassing! it wasn't long before the bites came in and was a pleasant surprise to see the water looking mint after so many people saying it wasn't worth the trip, I struggled with a bit of eager striking issues and missed farrrrr too many bites but I can blame it on the excitement of being back on the rocks. we fished 3 main marks all providing those heart stopping bites but it wasn't to we hit my fav mark where the fish played ball. I nailed two small Ballans in a deep gulley off the headland and couldn't of been happier!!!!!
Its a start to hopefully a good season! we are due some fine weather and im hoping we can get out as much as possible this season. Iv made a complete change of my gear this year and looking forward to abusing it like I only know how!!! keep your eyes peeled for some wrassing in the next few weeks :-)
