How To Hunt Fry Feeding Trout


As the nights draw shorter, and another season slips away, the residents of our lochs, lakes and reservoirs turn their attention to packing on weight for the long, lean winter ahead. Rainbows and browns everywhere contract fry fever!

On fertile lowland reservoirs and lochs, the coarse fish fry will provide the bulk of the protein for the binge. On upland waters and lochs, small fish and indeed small trout will draw unwanted attention. Catching fry feeders though isn’t always as simple as pulling a huge shiny lure through the depths. The size and colour of fry can vary greatly, depending on the venue and time of year, as can the tactics employed by the trout to hunt them. As always, observation is the key and then selecting a suitable approach and flies.

Trout Caught On Fry Pattern
Naturally, with fry spending much of their time in shallow water, and close to the sanctuary of weed, the bank angler can reap great rewards. Boat anglers are far from sidelined though and can reach the far-flung areas that bank anglers cannot, and as with many large reservoirs, shallow, weedy water isn’t always close to the shore.

Fry Boiling On The Surface
If you are fishing from the bank or boat, look for the tell-tale signs of fry feeding activity: disturbances in the weed beds, the "fizz" of tiny fry boiling in the surface layers as they try to escape death, and the crashing and splashing of trout. Look also for stunned and dead fry on the surface and opportunistic birds. When, based on evidence, you find your mark, choose your method and your flies accordingly, and be prepared for a battle. Strong line and a stronger heart are essentials, as fry feeders can be big, scarily aggressive and adept at leading you a merry dance through the weed.

From the bank, a single fly is usually a wise decision, eliminating the potential snag hazard of droppers, and maximising the strength of your leader. When prospecting on the boats, with clear, deeper water between you and the trout, a two or three fly cast is usually quite safe.

Here are our top tips for catching more fish during fry-time:

Hunt in the weeds and jetties
Visible structures, such as harbour walls, submerged fences and weed beds, are where fry seek shelter and are therefore obvious places to target fry-feeding trout. As winter progresses, strong winds and wave action will wash much of the surface weed beds on to the shore, but they will not have completely disappeared. In areas sheltered from the wind, there will still be weed and it will harbour fry. On barren-looking sections of water, look for grebes, gulls and terns diving for fry. At last light, you may often see fry dimpling and jumping.

Trout Waiting In The Weeds
Cast and move
If trout are chasing fry in the margins, they can be so preoccupied that they don’t see you. They will often patrol the same route and it is, therefore, easier to anticipate where they will strike.

If trout are not actively chasing fry you will need to cover more water to find them. It’s best to travel light, spending a short period in each spot, before moving on. There are fewer fish around at this time of year. They will not come to you, so you will have to go and find them.

Use a powerful rod
You need a fly rod and fly line that can cast big flies. A 7wt or 8wt rod, either 9 ft 6 in or 10 ft long, matched to a short bellied floating or standard-bellied intermediate/sinking line is ideal. This combination will cast all the flies you will need to fish on a given day. There is a big difference between casting a 1½ inch floating fly and a 4 inch Snake pattern.

Try the floating fry
You should fish a floating fry pattern with the same precision you would a dry fly. The fly should sit or hang in the surface rather than float on top of it, making it easier for the trout to take. You should also ensure the first few feet of leader nearest the fly has sunk. To stop the fly being dragged under by the rest of the leader, you can dress the leader with Mucilin, but only do this if the floating fry is the best method. Once it’s greased you will not be able to use the leader for sinking flies.

Trout Herding Minnows
Time it right
Don’t think that because it is cold the fish will only be active around the warmer middle of the day. First and last light is as good a time to catch fry feeders as they are to take insect feeders in summer.

Leave then Retrieve
On some days fish will take a static fly and on others, they’ll only look at something retrieved. If you are getting little interest, change your fly and/or its presentation. Instead of a static floating fry, try a moved one, or a Suspender Minkie twitched through the surface. With a sinking Minkie or Snake the fish may want a very slow figure-of-eight retrieve or a long, slow strip. To determine the most successful method you must experiment. One of the best methods for finding fish is a twitched Suspender Minkie – it nearly always gets a reaction if there are fish about.

Proven Patterns
There are many fry patterns but here is a small selection which work really well:
Fulling Mill Floating Fry
Fulling Mill Suspender Minkie


Fulling Mill Silver Brite Minnow

Fulling Mill Minkie Straggle

You can also find a huge selection of fry patterns instore at Glasgow Angling Centre or Edinburgh Angling Centre from brands such as Fario, FAF, Fulling Mill, Stillwater, and Caledonian Flies to name but a few.

Fishing For Pollack From A Boat


Pollack is common around the coast of the UK and Ireland, feeding mostly on small fish and sandeels, but they will also rummage on the seabed for worms and crustaceans. Occasionally confused with coalfish, the lower jaw of the pollack protrudes noticeably, and there is no barbel on the chin. The lateral line of a pollack (Pollachius pollachius) curves steeply upwards at the shoulder, and, being a member of the cod family, it has three dorsal fins. Its colour varies from one location to another, and ranges from brown to greenish-grey, to a golden, copper colour throughout the flanks.

A Decent Sized Pollack
Species
Pound for pound, pollack is one of the hardest fighting fish caught off the UK coastline, especially when taken on LRF tackle. Traditionally, pollack wasn't regarded as a food source, their white flesh lacks the flavour of similar species.  However, in recent years, thanks to the efforts of TV chefs, pollack has widely replaced cod and haddock. Not surprisingly, this has resulted in increased commercial fishing for the species.

Depending on location, the average size of pollack caught offshore is probably between 4-8lb, but in many areas, double- figure specimens are regularly caught, often on a daily basis. This is especially so during the first few months of the year when large aggregations of mature fish converge over offshore wrecks and reefs to spawn. At such times, it is possible to catch fish over 15lb.

Where And When
The vast majority of pollack are caught from reefs or wrecks, though fish are occasionally caught over relatively featureless ground. In some areas, such as the West Country, Ireland and Scotland, where deep-water reefs are located close to shore, pollack are caught in good numbers inshore, although fish in such areas will invariably weigh less than 10lb.

Wreck Fishing For Pollack
The largest specimens are almost always taken over wrecks or reefs located many miles offshore.

Boats fishing out of ports along the south coast of Devon and Cornwall have a long association with specimen pollack fishing over wrecks, along with other ports extending further east throughout the English Channel as far as Dover. Other pollack hotspots include wrecks located in the Celtic Deeps and St George’s Channel off West Wales, reefs around western and northern Scotland, and pretty much anywhere off the south and west coast of Ireland. Wrecks in the North Sea tend to be less productive in terms of the numbers and size of pollack they produce, but good fishing can be found here.

Tackle For Pollack Fishing
The traditional set-up for pollack fishing used to be a 12/20lb-class boat rod featuring a multiplier reel loaded with mono or braid.

Boat Rod & Multiplier
Many anglers still use such gear, although, in recent years, advances in tackle manufacturing have produced excellent spinning rods and fixed-spool reels that have been specifically designed for fishing for various species of hard fighting sport fish throughout the tropics.

Fisheagle Full Monty Boat Combo
As a result, an increasing number of anglers are now using spinning outfits to fish for pollack, even in depths of water of several hundreds of feet over offshore wrecks. Not only are these fishing outfits more than up to the challenge of taking the largest pollack, but they deliver superb sport with these hard fighting fish.

Greys GR70S Boat Rod
Pollack Rig
The traditional rig for catching pollack from a boat is the flying collar or versions of it. This consists of either a long, wire French Boom or, more likely, a plastic tube boom sliding on the mainline or leader, followed by a small bead and terminating in a small, high-quality swivel.

Pollack Rig Example
The hooklength is tied to the other end of this swivel and is usually clear mono between 8-12ft in length. The hook, or more likely, lure is tied to the end of this. If using modern spinning tackle as described above, the weighted shad is tied directly to the end of the leader, dropped straight down to the bottom and wound back with a steady retrieve. If you are losing rigs in the wreck, it is possible to attach the weighted lead sinker with a weak link of line.

Caught Using Red Gill Eel
When fishing for pollack over reefs, some anglers still use strings of up to six feathers or their modern equivalents. These are fished with or without bait.
Red Gill Pollack Lure Assortment
Baits For Pollack Fishing
Most anglers fish for pollack using lures. Typically, these will be one of the great many variations of artificial sandeel lures, such as the ever-popular 172mm Red Gill Eels. Shads have become very popular for catching pollack, especially the incredibly life-like range of Storm Wildeye Swim Shads in various sizes and colours.

Bait Caught Pollack
The heavier versions for these are fished in deep water using modern spinning rods and lures and spinners, as described.

Pollack can also be caught on sea baits fished off a long flowing trace tied to the same rig as described for lures. Indeed, at times, a live sandeel or head-hooked king ragworm can out-fish anything else by a considerable margin.

Pollack Caught On Mackerel
Method
The general method used when fishing for pollack over a wreck or reef is to position the boat uptide of the area to be fished, and then slowly drift back over it. The angler drops his bait or lures down to the bottom, then slowly starts to retrieve it up through the water column.

Boat Fishing For Pollack
This technique is particularly useful because the shoals of pollack are often located at various heights within the water column, and it is essential to determine at which height they are feeding. Counting the number of turns of the boat multiplier reel or fixed spool reel handle to the strike zone can help maximise results.
Penn Fathom Star Drag Reel
A delicate plucking usually detects bites and pulling at the tail of the lure, and it is essential that when you feel this, you maintain precisely the same rate of retrieve and resist the urge to strike. Keep winding, and eventually the fish will engulf the lure and dive to the bottom, at which point you set the hook by lifting the rod.
