Saltwater catches and tackle updates

Plaice at the double……

Colin Jones landed an amazing double shot of Plaice during a Flamer IV Flatty League match. Colin’s double shot of Plaice consisted of Plaice weighing 5Ib 14oz and 5Ib 4oz making a double of Plaice weighing over 11Ib.They certainly put a bend in Colin’s rod who thought he had hooked a monster Plaice. Colin’s catch is the biggest double shot of Plaice recorded on Flamer IV. Colin was using 10Ib class tackle with a two hook trace that had lots of coloured attractor beads on. The successful bait was ragworm and Ammo squid strips.


Pat Trenchard from Somerset and a member of Wells SAC has struggled to catch a big Plaice for years and his last trip was no different on Flamer IV until the last drift of the day when like buses – “Nothing” then two came along at once. Pat hooked an amazing double of Big Plaice weighing 11Ib 11oz with two Plaice weighing in at 5Ib 15oz and 5Ib 12oz.This did stop the mickey taking that Pat had endured for most of the day. To say Pat was overjoyed with his big Plaice double would be an understatement. “Well done Pat for not giving up”. Pat was using 10Ib class tackle with a two hook flatty trace with size 2/0 hooks, the trace had lots of green and yellow attractor beads on. The successful bait was ragworm and strips of Ammo squid. Pat’s double shot is a new Flamer IV record beating Colin Jones who earlier this year had a Plaice double shot weighing 11Ib 2oz.
