Knots & Rigs for Gurnard

A bright orange fish with brightly coloured pectoral fins.

Gurnard have lower pectoral rays which use for ‘walking’ along the bottom and uncovering small animals and crustaceans in the sand and sediment for food

They have a spine on each gill plate and while it’s not immediately obvious, can really do some damge so handle carefully.

They can be caught anywhere there’s a flat sedimentary bottom and will readily take cut baits, small jigs and flashers with small baits.
