Recommended Posts

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

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

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

We were armed with jigging stuff and here the water was a little coulered

we had a few unsucsessful drifts

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

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

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

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
