HI There,

 

Lived in St Ives for 16 years and I don't know anyone who ever fished it with any success. Head to the top of town past the firestation, take first turn for Penzance, then first right just before the large pink building (used to be a nite club!).....about 1/2 a mile along there.

 

To be honest, the ocean is a damn sight closer and more varied, and there are so many rock marks, little coves and beaches to try for Bass, Pollock, Mackerel, Mullet etc it would be a shame not to pack a light rod, some lures and take a wander!

 

Wherever you go, I hope that ya have a blinder!

 

Lastly......H Symons doesn't exist anymore (the ironmongers that is, not the bloke I hasten to add - He's alive and well I hope), and the Boys @ Newtown are a great help, but are also 10/12 miles from St Ives, on the Penzance to Helston road at Germoe - about 1/2 a mile from a whole new stretch of coastline to explore!!

 

Enjoy,

 

Frags

I have fished bussow and have always had good results. The best approach is the feeder with corn, caster, maggot or worm. fish at about 30 yards and prepare to be busy!

the bream are spawning at the moment and in about 2 weeks will be feeding in large numbers so expect a decent weight.

However if u dont fancy that you have B.K. fisheries 6 miles away in st erth where they have two fantastic lakes and a tackle and bait shop.

 

gooduck and please let me know how you get on.
