BASS
The bass fishing from Poole can be very productive with many varied venues & techniques from offshore drifting, anchoring reefs with live mackerel and very light spinning. The best rig for Bass when at anchor is a simple running ledger with a trace of around 3/4 foot of 20/30lb monofilament line and 2/0 to 6/0 hook depending on the size of bait, the same is fine for drifting as well if fishing with a live bait if that's not available though rubber shads can be just as effective I fined either blue or Opel (white) to be the best colours. Bass fishing normally starts in earnest around the end of May when the chance of good numbers of small mackerel increases. As the shoals of small fish thin out over the summer the chance of a double increases, after the end of September it becomes increasingly harder to catch bait, but if the weather is fair we sometimes get good numbers of bass right up to Christmas. The best tides for bass are big ones. From 1st Jan 2018 European law is no take for Bass. The minimum size for bass is still 36cm however I like to keep to the NFSA size which is 42cm and I also like to see fish over 8lb go back, these are not boat rules just guidelines to help save these magnificent fish.
