Pollack fishing



Pollack like rough weedy ground, rocky coastlines and wrecks. They have a thick-set body with a dark bronze back changing to a greenish hue on the side with golden brown shades. Its belly is white or grey with yellow markings. The pollack's huge eyes are ideal for hunting crustaceans and molluscs.

Larger pollack move into deep water searching for herring and sandeel or lurk near wrecks in the hope of catching a passing fish. This fish packs on the weight in its early years and a well fed pollack can grow up to four and a half feet although most are around 20 inches.Pier caught pollack


From about April to October.


Spinning with an artificial sandeel or float fishing from a rock position.
