After a couple of trips out with no fish showing I finally opened my account for 2011, 24th April. A bass of around 2 1/2 lbs, but the first of hopefully many to come.
It was taken off the top on a Caperlan surface 'walk the dog' style lure.
This was a great trip out with one of my new Japanese blanks. 10ft 6' casting 8-28g.
