Chasing Celtic Gold Steve Neely shares some great tips for shore pollack on lures! "The crash-diving pollack is perhaps the archetypal inshore predator, with a sleek torpedo-like build, big searching eyes and an appetite to match the size of their large mouth. These mighty bars or gold provide lure anglers with some truly awesome rod-bending action from the rocks all summer long." The Portu-Geezer Matthew Crowe offers top tips to keep catching when the sun is out and the water is gin clear "Summer is here at last and those cold, dark depressing days are now a distant memory in the angler's mind. We are now packing our sunglasses and shorts rather than woolly hats and thermals, and the beaches are alive with people trying to soak up those warm rays of sunshine" Flounding Around Steve Neely shows how to get to grips with some lure-smashing flatties "Do you ever get those trips when everything seems to be conspiring against you?
