Inshore Wrecking With Devon Bass Pro Charters, Seaton, Devon
A day out with John Wallington of Devon Bass Pro Charters, Seaton, Devon was in the diary for Tuesday and with a lovely, warm day and light winds forecast, Dad, Dave and I were all set for a days fishing targeting bass from the many inshore wrecks found in Lyme Bay. After a quick introduction to Paul, the chap taking the boat to it's maximum capacity of five, we were off and making our way to our first location. It wasn't long before the first fish were hooked and landed and I wasn't at all surprised to find that they were cod and not our intended target species. As I reported recently the wrecks off the south coast are currently alive with cod and getting through them to get at the bass and pollock is not an easy task. You can't be unhappy with catching cod however and we all enjoyed battling these hard scrapping fish on the light tackle that John provides. It wasn't until late in the day that bass number one made an appearance, followed soon after by another few. More cod and the occasional small pollock made up the bulk of the catch though and we were soon heading in after a great day of rod bending action.
