Bass Fishing From a Boat
The ever more popular Bass can be fished for from a boat using baits or lures. Catching a Bass from a boat is similar to the shore and many of the lures and rigs can be used for both. Generally Bass feed in shallow running water or sit on the edges of drop offs waiting for their next meal to swim or drift by. The hard bit is getting your bait/lure in the correct spot, if you do somehting will pull back hard.
Cod Cod Cod
Cod fishing is without doubt the Uk's favorite style of boat fishing and there is a serious amount of tackle to pick from. Cod can be caught using bait but its much more effective to use a heavy pirk or shad fitted on a collar boom rig to get to the fish. They are usually found around deepish wrecks just waiting for you to drift past with your shads, eels and pirks.
Pollack are a hard fighting fish and depending where you are can really alter what boat fishing tackle you need. You can find Pollack around reefs and wrecks and the same tackle can be used that will catch you a Cod. You can also catch Pollack close in around kelp beds and steep cliffs. This is all about spinning from the boat. Make sure you have weedless shads if casting in and around Kelp beds. You will usually need something quite heavy so it sinks quickly.
Whether you after Tope, Smoothound, Blue sharks, Porbeagles or even a Mako shark the technique is similar you just have up upgrade your tackle to suit the fish. Havy mono and wire are essential to catch any of these toothy critters. All sharks are scent feeders so bloody baits full of scent are required to catch regularly. We have a specific area of our site dedicated to Shark fishing tackle.
There are so many different types of flat fish but they all love worm baits and all love beads and attractors on your rigs. If you can get away with fishing with light tackle from the boat for these, it can be great fun.
There are so many other species to talk about but not enough time. Wether your after Gurnard or Conger we should have the boat fishing tackle for you and if you cant find it please give us a call on 01524 422146.

Century Excalibur Braid Boat 20-50lb 8ft 4" We have been quite excited for this rod to come in and now it has, we havent been let down. The Century Excalibur braid boat is built with HPR carbons making it lighter, more sensitive and still retain bags of power making it better than any other rod on the market. If your wanting the best rod. Here it is. The Century Excalibur Braid rods have a very supple tip, a slow progressive increase in power in the mid section to accommodate the non elastic properties of braid and the power then increases rapidly in the butt. The design principle separates the rod into 3 distinct zones: the tip zone cushions the braid and protects light hook holds, the mid zone develops a subtle increase in stiffness that controls the fish during the main lift phase and the final zone delivers leverage to control a specimen fish diving back for cover in snags. These 3 zones work collectively to bring the benefits in using braid together and the transition between the zones is seamless. The carefully considered guide spacing and sizes allow a smooth transition of braid through the guides even when maximum down force is applied and are selected to last many years. • Length 2.55m (8’4”) 2 pieces: Short butt – Long tip for design integrity. • Guides – Fuji • Guides: single leg intermediates and double leg lower 2 guides: 9 guides + tip guide. • Fuji DPS Black 20 reel seat. • JSR joint grips and stainless steel trim band. • JSR lower handle and rubber butt cap • Black EVA grip with flat upper for braid control • Multi modulus carbon construction: advanced resin system -Autoclave cured for action retention • Anti Twist Technology (AT-T) • Petrol blue translucent colour blank with metallic marine blue and Royal blue wrappings.
