The Penzance Kayak Fishing Species Hunt had unfortunately been cancelled for the weekend with the untimely arrival of the remnants of tropical storm Bertha. Mark, Si, Richi and Steve were already down here for the competition so with all but perfect conditions forecast for Thursday we planned a day out from Sennen the preferred venue for the now cancelled competition. We were in for a great day on the water....
Hot sun, zero wind, zero swell and a spring tide.... i couldn't wait to get out on the kayak. A plan was forged to drift the sands with Ethan in the hope of flatfish and maybe a weever. We were on the beach and launching for 10am and started paddling out for the headland on the edge of the bay to start the drift.
a trip out from st marys lighthouse was the place to fish today
Lovely morning sun shinning and a flat sea
paddled out to the reef about 400 yards out and started fishing with a set of hokkies and a pirk on the end with a single hook ........
After spending the week at flamborough and not managing to get out due to the bad weather I managed to get a few hours out at the boat house Whitley Bay.
Met up with Davey, Barry and Brian and headed out into a decent swell of 4 to 5 foot. I decided as the summer is just around the corner, I would just be drifting the reefs looking for the cod, setting up with 6/0 hokeyes baited with lug.
