Luderick fishing isn't difficult provided you follow a few basic rules. In another article I have talked about getting the correct bait, presenting the bait at the correct depth and the type of gear required to get the float into the correct position.

But, what is the correct position? What makes a good spot, and where do fish hold once you are in that spot? If you can answer these questions, then you have a fighting chance of catching a few luderick.


This article attempts to give the novice some ideas using a few examples.

If you are going to attempt to fish for luderick (or blackfish if you prefer), then you are going to need to use an appropriate rod. This article is an attempt to list blackfish rods and rough prices as of January 2012 in one place. But first, what makes a rod appropriate for blackfish.
