Potential world-record yellowfin tuna landed in San Diego Following closely behind my blog on Giant Bluefin Tuna comes this story of a monster Yellowfin Tuna caught of the coast of San Diego!

The fish was caught on the long-range charter Vagabond Dec 6, 2010 Angler Mike Livingston brought a 405.2-pound yellowfin tuna to the dock Monday in San Diego that c...

 World Record Catches! With the arctic conditions that we are currently 'enjoying' here in the UK I have been spending my spare time sorting out my tackle room, photos albums and fishing library. Whilst undertaking this ‘mammoth’ task I have not only found some interesting items of tackle and lures that I thought were long lost but I have also uncovered some interesting pictures and articles of IGFA World Record fish. There are some fantastic stories behind the ca...

Sometimes it is not about the fish that you catch but more about the day itself! I had one such day just last weekend! What started off as a promising day fishing aboard Aristocat out of Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne turned into one that was perhaps memorable for everything other than the fishing! The following images will perhaps give you more of a 'feel' for the day? Leaving port at around 07.00. We have just fuelled up (after de-icing the fuel caps!) and althoug...

BUILD THE RAUTO SPOON RIG The ABU Rauto spoon began life back in the 1960’s as an ice fishing spoon in Scandinavian countries. It was used with bait as an attractor by ice fisherman targeting trout, pike, char and perch. It was also used in saltwater for cod. During the late 1960’s and in to the 1970’s sea angling in the UK was undergoing dramatic changes with innovation and modernisation the key theme. At this time new rigs came about and one of these was the attractor s...

Gathering in reports from all round the UK it looks like many areas are already experiencing a fair run of smaller codling to 3lbs, but backed up with a few fish from 5 to 11lbs. The past three years seems to have produced reasonable numbers of juvenile cod, these having now grown on to be the smaller fish showing from so many areas. What’s really pleasing is that the fish are back in to areas where recently they pretty much disappeared from, namely the Menai Straits in No...

If you are going to fish the Wye, there is only one place to start and that is Woody’s tackle shop in Hereford. A quick visit to pick up a ticket for the Belmont stretch and a few tips and we were on our way. We started in the Rugby Club section and were soon catching quality Dace and Roach, hoping that the Pike would follow in. This was soon proved correct when James had a Dace attacked on the way in and by replacing his stick float with a small Pike float and dead bait t...

DIY hollow braid Vertical Jigging Assist Hook     Check List: Various braking strain hollow braid and Kevlar braid. Much depends on where you are fishing and what you expect to catch. In U.K. waters where there is a lack of really toothy predators you can use normal hollow braid. If you are fishing tropical waters then I suggest that you use Kevlar braid or risk being cut off.

 EVESHAM FESTIVAL The Finals August 28th to August 30th   Shakespeare Championship (70 pegs) This match saw the river dropping after a three feet rise two days earlier but it was still very coloured and most of the competitors felt it would be a match dominated by big fish. It was no surprise then when Gary Miller took the title and the £6,000 top prize from downstream Peg 67 with 22-4-0 of bream. Using an open-end feeder with groundbait, casters an...

  Shakespeare Trion Outfit: Try the Trion, that was the challenge! Having used the Shakespeare Oracle for four years, this new rod was totally different. For a start we now had a complete outfit, Trion Rod, Trion Reel and Trion Line, all matched to each other, what a combination! ‘Trying’ the outfit meant taking it to our base on Vancouver Island, Canada to test it on the Pacific salmon, Pinks, Coho, Sockeye and the big Kings. Having tried the rod on our home rive...
