The mighty Tamar seeing a lot of the action as a few more big Cod have been taken by the persistent and determined Plymouth brigade of specimen hunters, the old guard also showing the new breed that they have still got the skills!

The odd few thornies still being caught but slow going in the river, this beauty was caught in the first week of January and another PB for Rob Batten who features quite a lot in my reports, plenty of whiting about with a better run in places, this 2 pound fish I witnessed at the ever popular Devils Point caught by a delighted club angler.

We finally had a cold snap and the flounder responded beautifully with specimen fish being taken regularly in surrounding areas like Kingsbridge,

whilst plymouth anglers have been catching nice modest fish and they have even been caught on LRF tactics responding to lures by several Anglers including Andy Smith who tempted this beauty on a curly tail jig literally under his feet down the side of a wall in the river Plym

there have been a string of big Bass caught locally and this is unusual for Plymouth especially so many in 2 months!

So Plymouth is well and truly on the map as far as specimen upper double Bas are concerned, not to mention the big eels that have been caught and released.

I would expect the whiting and Cod to hang around for a bit and the bas to keep us entertained well into February,

The LRF side have still been caught off guard trying to see what works in the lure box with continual coloured conditions, one man in particular Age Lundstrom has started to record his catches with each lure he uses in these low vis conditions and i will be covering that in a separate little 2 part feature on lure choice in coloured waters…

      Whiting, pollock, Bass, flounder and Mullet David, should keep you busy!, the water clarity is poor att, favouring bait over lures….
