I had been waiting weeks and weeks for a calm settled day. Richard and Steve were down in Cornwall and were keen for a session. Elliot was desperate to get his first session of the year in too. We would be fishing the Spring tide on the day of the July blue moon and i fancied a day drift fishing so a plan was hatched. Early on Friday morning we met at a secluded launch venue in West Cornwall. Little did i know that i was in for a treat!
A day drifting the sands was planned from one of my favourite kayak fishing marks. The scenery is fantastic and the fish can be plentiful on the right day both in size and number of species. An early start saw me and kieren on the beach ready to launch at 10 after a long walk with the kayaks down a rocky track and a big sand dune - not too bad going down.... coming back up is a different story! The sun was shining with hardly a drop of swell, but a slight offshore wind was blowing, not too bad with the forecast predicting 8-10mph. We paddled out to a nearby headland and dropped our baits into a tidal run onto the sandy seabed 20m below us.
