There is no getting away from the fact that August is a difficult month for bass, it is most likely that the bass are simply full up on the masses of bait fish which are around the coastline at the moment and are simply not that interested in our lures. However if you put in the effort in the right place at the right time you will more often than not be rewarded with a few fish.
We have been fishing weedless plastics a lot at the moment which have been working very well. Myself Cian and Ger where fishing a mark the other night where the bass seemed to have turned off from the night before. Over comes Ger "Any chance I could try one of those wave worms" Cian gives him a chartreuse wave worm and first cast he go's and nails the bass in the picture below.
Impressed with the wave worm?
The wave worm which did the business, we have also found we are getting great hook ups with the lunker city texposer hooks.
We will have a wide range of wave worms arriving in the next couple of days so be sure to call in to see the great selection of soft plastics available from wave fishing.
We fished a rock mark yesterday evening, once again the bass were not playing ball but Ger did manage to land this fine bass on the old faithful Pearl Gataride....
