    having taken the descision to return to work, this summer has been a bit of a right off, however getting back from Brazil late on Wendsday evening I noticed the weather forcast was pretty good so sorted the kayak for a trip on friday, always looking for new options I suggested to Ken we try some after dark plugging from the kayak, I launched from North landing about 6 and had a go around there but only managed a succesion of billet & small pollock. Ken joined me later & we headed north
    passing the Bass match enroute. A nice evening but nothing doing & we gave it a good go into darkness without joy so eventually we decided to go ashore & rest up until dawn, quite interesting landing in the dark even with only a small swell.
    A bite to eat & a bivowac on Reighton beach under the stars, meant we were able to launch at dawn which ws very pleasant.
    Once again we gave it our best shot, but just like the match last night we found Bass impossible to locate. so to give the plugging arm some relief we had a go for some cod, those were much easier and we were able to catch pretty easily although the majority were on the small size.
    so with a few in the bag we decided to have another go with the plugs, by 10am I was starting to have doubts, but the great thing about fishing for larger Bass is that just when you have almost given up you often get that brilliant moment.
    just one more cast without any great exspectation and suddenly line was ripping off my reel, a great fight eventually resulted in landing this beauty
    Ken has some better pictures, but it tipped tha scales at 5lb 4oz
    that was it for the day, Bass wise & our attempts to grab a few mackerel resulted in more Cod
    so we finally beat a way through the tourists at 12:30 rather knackered but :happy:
    not sure what we learned but it was interesting
