    Whitby Bass Club Report

    With the swell dropping and water clearing we decided on another bass session. I must admit that when I saw the conditions I was not overly optomistic as I felt there was too much swell. However the gruesome twosome, Dan and Damo told us that they had caught bass in far heavier conditions and that we just needed to apply a bit of effort.


    The first few hours were fairly boring with not a single take. Then as dusk began to fall Dan took the first fish of the day on his trusted Yo Zuri Crystal minnow.


    For some reason Dan then vacated his spot, so I quickly jumped in and it wasnt long before I hit a nice fish of 4lb that gave me a bit of a run around before I got it on the shore.

    Dan then decided to come back and join me and he was soon into a second. As the light faded we all hit more fish and it was clear they were feeding very close in, with my second taking the plug just as I went to lift it out of the water.


    Mike who had been struggling with the zonk, changed tactics and soon found a bass and a herring on a maria chase bw. However the lure of the day appeared to be the yo zuri crystal minnow with myself and Dan taking 3 bass each.


    Another great evenings fishing on the Yorkshire coast, and hopefully bigger bass to come in the next few weeks.

    Well done lads, top report, I do think the last few hours of flood coinciding with the fading light is a hot time, particular with a bit of chop on

    Surprised the Zonk failed to score :confused:

    Im sure the zonk would have scored but we had a few fish and Mike was struggling and the lads took the proverbial and I think psychology got the better of Mike and he was soon reaching for the trusted BW

    top report and pics there lads, you certainly seem to have sussed this bass plugging lark out - i think i'll have to go back to the drawing board and try some marks other than local spots, and do a bit more homework- well done

    Great report and pics Glenn. Again you lads go and do the business you make it sound easy.

    I had a walk along the Cliff tops at sandsend last Saturday at low tide doing a bit of home work ready for the winter fishing anyway as I was stood at Bernie's ledge taking mental notes of fishy looking places I saw 2 silver fish as the tide was just starting to fill a large hole I am sure thay were Bass is this usual or was it just luck.

    Well done again lads, just as well the bass match wasn't on yesterday :laugh: I went armed with plugs and bait as backup yesterday evening and ended up coming home again an hour later having not wet a line. The wind picked up down here and the sea looked nothing like it does on your pics. I think there might be a window in the weather tomorrow evening :pray: Don't the bass pics look good just as they've been caught, with the dorsal stood upright.

    Cracking session, I think we're all learning that bass can be caught in a host of different conditions. It's always worth a shot!
