Finally a weekend where the sun was shining with flat seas and a bank holiday. A few boats managed to get out and it fished really well for bass.
As for the shore fishing it has been another quiet week with weever fish, sole, bass, whiting and the odd tope pup being caught.
Heading into September we should start to see the whiting in bigger number which then draws the dogfish closer in and not long after the cod will arrive.
Already we have seen a few codling showing along the coast when conditions are right. Worm baits will soon become the most effective for shore anglers in particular.
Last Saturday Neil Kenyon headed out to fish the bay on the Morecambe side. Using lures while fishing the flood Neil had loads of school bass. He topped the day off with one of five pounds.
Mark Yule and David Lynagh from the Wyre Boat Angling Club also fished the flood on Sunday afternoon in Morecambe Bay. The duo were rewarded with plenty of bass to 7lb. They also boated mackerel, tope, flounder, whiting, dogfish and thornbacks to a mixture of baits.
