Fishing for Pollock

Spinning, Fly fishing, Salt water fishing, Spearfishing

Pollock bring legends to shoreline anglers across the UK and north-eastern, North American Atlantic waters with their powerful fights so close to land- bringing to many mid-day fisherman the nervous sweats!

Avid pollock anglers always have a story fighting a tough fish between crashing, powerful waves and buff rock breakers.

Big, dark eyes help the pollock search for smaller fish and crustaceans, when not falling prey to predators such as the Spiny Dogfish.

Because they run in schools, Pollock are aggressive feeders that will hit rigs simultaneously; ripping line and shaking fiercely.

Fish fast instead of slow, The jerky movements will attract their attention best. Pollock are loyal sport fish by taking most baits and lures, perfect fun for all adventure-seeking anglers and are daytime feeders. They don't taste too bad as fish and chips, too.

Troll, jig, and rollcast your way towards pollock by boat or from the shore; it is great fun and a perfect introduction to whitefish and saltwater fishing.
