Pollock are plentiful between June and January when they can be found gorging on large shoals of sprats off the many wrecks. Those that we catch are generally between 8-17lbs, and they’re usually caught on the drift.
Once hooked a pollock will put up an incredible scrap, starting with a power dive, which will leave the angler feeling they have hooked a passenger lift descending to the seabed. It is not uncommon to have two or three anglers hooked into fish each drift.
Should be light
Usually between 10oz – 1.5lb. Keep in mind that at some wrecks there is the potential to lose lead weights.
