Met up with Joe and Oli, down in West Cornwall, as they were fishing a mark right on my doorstep, and invited me along. I was keen to see what fish were about, as it is a spot I have totally overlooked, dismissing it. I was fishing light plugs and SP's, with the Nories Seabass Program 5-12g, Certate 2506 with 0.8PE Sunline Castaway. Fishing around the high tide, with the conditions very calm, with a light breeze now and then.
I started out with the Patchinko 100, fanning the water from my rocky perch. Meanwhile Joe was searching the bottom, and soon hooked into a Wrasse, which looked like the biggest fish of the day. Spurred on by this, I quickly rigged up an SP, and set about the rocky depths. Plenty of taps with no hook ups, I was being teased by the smaller fish, nipping the tail of the lure, with a good few bungee fish. Managed to hook into a few, and landed 3 Wrasse, nothing of any size tho;
Continued to swap between hard and soft plastics, but moving along the stretch of coast, did not see any more signs of fish, even tho the ground seemed perfect for the Wrasse. Making the way back to the car, stopped off and searched the water with the Patchinko 100 again, all 3 of us using surface lures. As well as a few swirls, and swipes, this also attracted the sea gulls, and I had one after my lure, luckily dropped after a short carry. Joe was not so lucky, and had to reel a gull in before unhooking it!
Into the realms of final cast territory before the car, searched at distance, and had a good follow. Next cast into the same area, had a solid take and hook up. The light rod bent into the fish, making it appear to be a beast, but when close in and landed, it was a small Bass, but a very welcome sight at a spot I had previously not even considered;
Cheers to Joe and Oli for a good exploratory session, will be good to meet up again in West Cornwall, see if we can find some bigger specimens. Finally, came across local beastie on the footpath, so put the macro to good use on the camera;
