Pollack are a fish often found in deeper water and fall prey to float and spinning tactics.
The Pollack is a long, narrow streamlined fish well adapted for the speed at which it often takes your bait. Colour varies somewhat on the back from dark green to olive or bronze colours. The flanks fade through bronze colours to a paler belly.
The majority of shore caught pollack are a small average size between 1lb and 2lb. A good fish would be anything over 5lb though the Bailiwick shore caught record is over 16lb, a double figure fish is rare from the shore.
Smaller fish can be captured through most of the year though the main catches occur from May through to the start of winter.
Sandeel is the most popular and effective bait but these fish like Artificial lures and a jelly worm or Redgill will work very well when retrieved slowly in the right places.
A head hooked ragworm under a float can be deadly at last light.
