My first half decent fishing trip of the year :)

Launched from Easthaven, Angus, at low water, and headed for a reef about a mile off. Conditions almost too good; with light SW winds pushing the yak against the tide, and keeping me almost stationary. I should have slapped on a big bait and fished as though at anchor, but persisted with baited feathers. Result was 5 codling, all about the three pound mark . Not spectacular fishing, but still a nice start to the season proper. This one tasted damn fine too :D :

At least they are here now and that 10lber must be there somewhere :)

Yakity, you better get mended soon mate, even the 3lber puts me on course for that 50p so far!! :D

Well done Jaffa. With a 3lb cod I'd be over the moon. Will it be big bait fishing next time?

Nice catch Jaffa, good to see some fish in the area.

I just took delivery of mine yesterday so I'm itching to get out over the weekend and have a crack at the cod too :)

Hi Spanner,

Good news.....glad you have your Yak. :)
Just a thought here....may be an idea to get some time on the Kayak before you venture too far, theres plenty of time, the season is still young.
Get to know her, and make sure you have all the kit you need, have you read the safety check list on Anglers Afloat?
If you havnt, it would be a realy good idea to.
Its to late when your out there!!
Take your time, an keep safe.

yy:)
