Summer Bass Fishing – Shane Pullen

This morning I had a lovely email drop in the inbox from AD regular and Sea Angler journalist Shane Pullen, informing me about him and the chaps lastest angling exploits on the South, South/East coast.

The fantastic four, Shane Pullen, Paul Gunner, Big Ja and Darren Mills have been enjoying some superb Bass fishing action, taking some absolute crackers on both baits and lures.

Fishing the waters around Dungeness, the River Thames and Jaywick Sand in Essex they’ve managed lots of fish, with one of the biggest, an absolute cracker of 7lb landed on a lure by Big Ja.

There’s a few pictures from there recent sessions below as well as a whole host more on the Angling Direct Facebook page, you can read more details in the up and coming issue of Sea Angler magazine, which, as mentioned above Shane is a journalist for.

You can also keep up to date with Shane and the lads on Shane’s personal Facebook page…
