Inshore Boat Rockfishing

Inshore Boat HRF marks on the central South Coast of England are generally limited to shallow reef systems off the coast. We don’t have the rugged coastline and cliffs that you encounter as you travel further West. But we do have a few, and today the conditions were just right to tuck the boat in under one such chalk cliff.

The wrasse fishing was pretty consistent all day and we chipped away, in the bright sunshine trying to find the larger fish. We failed to find anything huge but it didn’t matter, such was the uniqueness and beauty of today’s fishing location.

The most interesting capture was a large Ballan Wrasse with some scarring on its left gill cover. It should be easy enough to identify this individual if we’re ever lucky enough to meet again. Apart from the scarring it was a lovely condition fish.

We’ll be back.
