Good session Dave! And the VR50 looks very nice in black too. When did that arrive?

I've had it for about a week ....feels like I'm cheating on my silver one though !! 🤭

id love to know where in dorset........ i'm in weymouth and not had a bass yet form boat or shore!

Can't be certain where Dave's bass came from, but my very first lure caught bass from shore came from the rocks by the Portland light. That area is a well-known bass mark, so you could try trolling a lure at slow speed behind your boat (well, in your case just try it at speed 😉). Fish black minnows, redgills, sidewinders etc should all do the trick.

Hi Mike 

I cut my teeth on bass fishing at Kimmeridge  many years ago  , For many the Mecca of bass fishing  , I rarely venture west these days unless the conditions look good as it's a long slog , your so lucky in that county as your surrounded by great marks .

Mike 

I put the confused remark on your comment because I can't believe your in Weymouth and struggling ....drop me a pm ..

If I lived down there I'd be on the beach today in these conditions .
