Hello all. New here. Scottish Kayak/rock fisher
Posted 05 June 2004 - 09:35 PM
I've pleasure fished for more years than I care to remember, mostly on Scottish East coast rock marks, and for the last two years from a kayak over local inshore reefs.
Like I suspect many pleasure anglers i'm a bit stuck in my ways about fishing methods, ie shore fishing consists of 3/0 hooks (do they really go smaller?), peeler and a lob of a cast. Boat fishing is jigging feathers on the drift for cod and mackerel. Braid, jellies, leadheads,??? etc - i have a lot to learn......
Kayak fishing has gotten me enthusiastic again and this looks like a good place to pick some brains and help me find some new fishing methods that would suit my kayakfishing.
Hopefully I can contribute a bit in return if anyones interested in the kayakfishing madness . Also I am a bit opinionated when it comes to conservation, fisheries and aquaculture and I don't always agree with a lot of what i see posted on sea angling forums - not sure if thats a good or bad thing
Anyway, I look forward getting to know you all.

I was up in Lochalain last weekend and we heard a kayak club on the radio. Seems that they had a Mother ship with them and were having a good time.
You could give Davy Hold and email and he might be able to get some details of the club next time he hears them.
I would not advise trying for Davy's pets from a kayak though
Cheers for now

Wecome to AN, I fish from a canadian canoe occasionally but I must admit I'm thinking about converting to a Yak after Yakety waxing lyrical about them. Do please share your opinions with us as it makes for interesting threads, just don't ram them down our throats

What flavor of kayak do you favor? (yup - if the flag avatar didn't give it away, the spelling did - I'm from way west of you folks).
