Are Sea Bass aggressive or what?

Check this out guys, a good fishing week-end, lots of strikes and many missed fish. Good fun, the best you can get in a Mediterranean summer day. Light tackle all the way, like the good ol’ times.

We used walking the dogs and soft plastics rigged weedless and without any kind of weight: Super Flukes, Houdini Shads, Slug-go, and alike. First shooting with my new combo and the photos are mostly crap. I have to get used to it and work my way with the new flash too, is just a simple matter of time.

Look at this little European Sea Bass what kind of lure tried to inhale. And haven’t I been so lazy I would have had some other images of mini predators taking WTD as big as them, but the fish were biting and I was more into the fisherman rather than the photographer mood.

If they take bait that big imagine what a big fish would take.

Just found this blog, what a great combination of activities- fishing and photography!! I recently moved to this remote Australian town and have taken up both...the colours out here are amazing but am still waiting for that illusive photo of me holding up a barramundi!!!

Look forward to reading future posts.

Funny enough, the large fish tend to be finicky and suspicious and they are more prone to hit smaller lures

Welcome around here Wicked Evangelist, sometimes I wish I could live in Oz too ... :-)
