With the success of fishing lures in deep water during the Penzance Kayak Fishing Meet i wanted to give it another go! This time Holly was coming along on the tandem. I had been to Seaview Angling at Plymouth to top up with some new lures - Fiiish Minnows and the new HTO Arctic Eel. The forecast was looking good with light winds and sun. On arrival at the launch it soon became apparent that the wind forecast was wrong!
The lures were rigged up on the rods and ready for action!
I could see that the sunfish was covered in parasites and i can only assume that it enjoyed scraping itself alongside the kayak and our hands to relieve the itch. We even had a few acrobatic displays as the sunfish repeatedly jumped out of the water, possibly in attempt to dislodge the parasites. I managed a few underwater shots. This one is out of focus but you can see the number of parasites covering its body
