Light Rock Fishing or LRF as It is known is becoming more and more popular locally as anglers realise the potential rewards can be well worth the investment. LRF It seems Is appealing to anglers because It can be applied in many different location types targeting practically any species across all twelve months of the year, It Is also a great way to get kids involved In fishing and for those who have very limited time available for successful impromptu midweek sessions.
One evening session this week at a low water venue produced dozens of fish mostly pollack taking soft lures on the drop (OTD) but also some Scorpion fish and Blenny’s were landed. The pollack were hammering baits frantically just below the surface over the mixed ground so much so before dark fishing with only a jig head without any lure actually increased the hook up rate.
Rod: Pontoon 21 Gancho 1.5-8.0 gr.

The Pontoon 21 Gancho range of rods are superb value for money with a high quality finish and large selection of available casting weights and lengths to suit many lure fishing applications. I have been aware of this brand for only a few months but impressions so far are very good indeed – Time will tell.
