We are a new bespoke guiding company based near Plymouth in Devon.
My name is Paul (Bassman) Gordon, I have been Bass fishing for over 30 years and have a good understanding and knowledge of our spiky friends.
I have been fishing my local estuaries and beaches for long enough to know a thing or two about catching those silver bars, i have also been lucky enough to join the doubles club on both boat and shore with an 11lb 8oz shore caught beauty pictured below.
It’s all about catch and release these days and due to the current restrictions in force , you must return all Bass for the first six months of the year, but after July 1st you may if you wish take home one Bass per day, per angler.
I help others achieve Bass fishing success through one to one guiding and my media work on my facebook page called Bassmans Bounty, also my you tube channel and twitter, @bassmans_bounty.
I have my own presenting style and it’s fair to say I get a bit carried away on camera, it’s just how fishing makes me feel I guess!
I am sponsored by Tronixpro and get to test and promote the latest tackle finery including their associates Vercelli, Yuki, HTO and Eagle Claw.
I’m delighted to have good friend Martin (Larks)Larkin involved as my advisor/companion/Mentor and technical support, a total fishing fanatic with over 40 years experience.
we are planning to make a series of how-to videos in the future which will be awesome!, No stranger to the camera, Larks has already made several fishing programs with Henry Gilby, a and guided Matt Hayes and the Duke Mick Brown to their first conger Eels in Plymouth.
Total Fishing conger episode below…
Martin has an unrivalled understanding of fishing in general and has mentored me for over 20 years!
A positive mental attitude and the belief that you are doing everything right to catch fish, as well as detailed minute by minute guidance is all part of the experience when fishing , which is why we do not fish when you are out on a guided session
all of our attention is focused on you and your session,
Age Lundström is on board to show you the light side of lure fishing in and around Plymouth, An LRF wizard and lure nut who is more than happy either on a species hunt or a Midnight bass hunt!
be it on the Bass, Wrasse or mini species, Age eats, sleeps and breaths lure fishing and has his own territory around Plymouth, from the River Tamar to Sutton harbour and the river Plym
New for 2018, Conger Eel and Bull Huss adventures, see guiding prices for details
There are no guarantees in fishing but I am confident that you will learn new lighter ways to fish using the latest fishing rods, methods and tips that will give you the edge next time you go fishing, from basic watercraft to rig choice and bait/Lure presentation.
As well as the above, We can offer media coverage of your day in the form of a video edit which will be a nice reminder of your day with us in Devon, this must be pre arranged as dates will be very limited, there will be options for pricing regarding your video edit and this service is not available anywhere else, P.O.A
Your video will also get exposure on this website, also our facebook pages Fishing Guides Devon and Bassmans Bounty plus our Twitter page as well as our you tube channel.
