Another visit to the NEFFP! This time with my son Ceri. The aim was to get out of the house, get some fresh air and catch some fish on lures. The story of the trip is told in pictures:

    Hi Andrew,
    Could i know what bait you used? and if you have tips for someone going there for the first time?
    any advice is much appreciated 🙂

    • Joel,

      For this trip I used lures only – soft plastic lures work best here (for lure fishing), with a jig head or small bullet weight to keep the bait near the bottom. slow retrieve with pauses (stop-start) seem to work best here. I use paddle tail & curl-tailed lures. I’ve had fish with white, black, yellow/green, blue/green, red/black, white/red – they all work here.

      When I’m bait fishing I usually buy live-baits at the NEFFP – they sell a range of live-bait which can be fish live or dead. Oily sea fish, such as scad and small mackerel baits also do well here. Other people also use chicken livers and guts – it works but is horrible to use! One thing that (surprisingly) didn’t seem to work when I tried it was squid!!

      Good luck.
