Lying near the southern tip of the Isle of Portland in Dorset is Pulpit Rock, a popular natural attraction for photographers. Pulpit Rock is also a popular point for Wrasse angling because the fish likes the cutbacks and fissures that travel deep into the rock and cliff. It is here that the British record catch of Ballan Wrasse was set in 1998 by local expert Pete Hegg.
The biggest Wrasse are inshore during May and June during the spawning period. Fishing from the top of Pulpit Rock provides a higher angle to the water, which helps when wrestling a fish out of the weeds.
