On Saturday i met up with Col and Mally for a spot of kayak fishing
The plan was head to North landing Flamborough for a go bouncing hokeyes and other shiny and coulurful stuff off the sea bed

Youtube Video ->Original Video

When we got there it was lumpy and very very cold
Mally and Col are brave souls but yhis is to much this cold
We opted to go South instead as the sun may help

It was a lot nicer on the South side of the head

Posted Image

It looks nice and sunny but it is god dam frezzing
It is best to keep dry when its cold but a launch here requires wet feet

Posted Image

We were armed with jigging stuff and here the water was a little coulered
we had a few unsucsessful drifts

Posted Image

The tide was running very fast so we dicieded to hook up to a crab bouy
The bouy seemed to take forever to get to
We were not equiped to bait fish so armed with a mackeral and hokeyes stared to fish for whiting and flat fish

Posted Image

we got a few of each and put a few back
2 other kayak anglers past us on the drift aproxx 20 miles an hour
I felt for them knowing what paddle back lay ahead

Posted Image

after about an hour a crab boat wanted to be at his bouy
my feet were cold now so it was good to get moving again
we went to some kelp beds to drift our macky over it in the hope of a hungry cod
2 shore anglers were doing the same

Posted Image

We were getting cold so we called it a day mid after noon

I got home and still had cold feet
i set about turning fish into tea

Posted Image

I filleted the whiting and flatty
put em in a dish added garlic salt , pepper butter and some lemon

Posted Image

This warmed my feet up nicley stood in front of the rayburn
i cooked it on 5 bits of wood heat for 15 mins
i took it out and poured the jucie away and gave it another 5 mins

Result warm feet and tea was lovley
