We headed off across the Sound and headed for Drakes Island. Several small boats and a few kayaks were already there....they must have been up even earlier than me! A couple of casts in....BANG! Something had nailed the lure hard and despite strong resistance found the kelp below....i kept the pressure on and teased it out into the open where it went bezerk again! Rod bent double i coaxed it to the surface and pulled it onboard.... a chunky colourful Ballan Wrasse around the 4lb mark....excellent!
We crossed the ebbing Tamar at the Dragons Teeth and paddled alongside the edge of Cornwall into Cawsand Bay. Kevin spotted a deer amongst the trees at Mount Edgecombe as paddled along the rocks.
A fun few hours with great company. Target achieved and a bonus Ballan too. Im looking forward to getting out with Kev again soon. Hopefully there will be some monsters biting!
