Sea Angler (UK) - - YOUR FISHING -

An 8lb 10oz bass was caught and re­leased by Ron ‘Wizz’ Weed­ing ( pic­tured bot­tom) dur­ing a long ses­sion at Wal­ton on the Naze pier, Es­sex.

The an­gler from Colch­ester had vis­ited the pier with his pal Gra­ham Martin, where they fished for rays but de­cided to try for bass at sun­rise. The fish took Ron’s bluey and squid bait about 13 min­utes be­fore high tide on June 15. Gra­ham helped land the fish with a drop-net.

Fish­ing a live pout­ing was the suc­cess­ful tac­tic for Andy Baker (be­low), of Seaford, East Sus­sex, when he caught and re­leased a 9lb 6oz bass at Seaford.
