I haven't been kayak fishing since the Penzance meet 4 weeks earlier. The weather has been rubbish but with good weather forecast for Sunday and with it being my birthday I was treating myself to a session on the water. The plan was to lure fish the reefs for Pollack but i was in for a surprise.....
This turned out to be an excellent plan because on the first cast something nailed the lure! The fish tore off and i initially thought a big Pollack had taken my Savage Gear sandeel. Once i turned the fish it soon become apparent it wasn't the usual crash diving Pollack. This fish was angry and hanging deep. My Ugly Stik Elite Spin 20-50gr was hooped over but i slowly teased the fish towards the surface. I peered down into the crystal clear water to see a decent Bass thrashing around!!! Soon enough i has a stunning Bass of 7lb 13oz and 70cm in length on my lap!!
Andrew filmed most of the fight on his iPhone whist circling me in his Hobie Revo 13.
Happy days indeed 😄
