    Had a 1st tonight, a sea trout while plugging for bass off Runswick way.


    What a scrap, don't think it realised it was hooked till it saw the yak and then did it go some . . .

    Another great afternoon with Dave, Marion and Ian07. . .Shattered, post more tomorrow

    It was a beautiful fish Ray and took the lure at dusk in 4ft of water. In all honesty they had been launching themselves into the air around us all afternoon, one I witnessed launched itself at least 6 foot high.

    Once hooked it jumped twice - I've never experienced anything like it :happy:

    Nice One Ken thats a great catch and another first for the yakkers. I was told last year that they get them this time of year around the Staithes area too from the small boats, so it could be worth a bit more effort on that front.

    Well done Ken, another fine catch :cool:

    You'll have to start being one of those guy's that lists your various kayak caught fish at the bottom of every post you make, unfortunately I doubt the website's server could handle that much info! You've come along way since winter :yes:

    Just re reading what you said about the trout not realising it was hooked Ken. Anyone who has caught sea trout will tell you this is quite a commen penomenon, especially in the river. I really believe they do not think they have been caught untill they see you. Ive seen a few people land a trout onto a river bank without a landing net without any fight at all, even the bigg trout of 10 pounds plus behave this way too.. Then when they hit the deck they go ballistic. I dont know why it happens but it does. Obviously if they do wake up you know about it, as you found out :laugh: :cheesy:

    Nice one Ken- that'll make a fine meal.
    Funnily enough I've had two from the salt this year- a first for me.
    It goes to show as well that while the Welsh rivers and ones in other areas stop their sea trout fishing about now due to them being past there best and getting stale our North East sea trout remain silver and fresh to the end of the season and beyond.

    Thanks guys, whish i could say I have been studying and targetting them for a while but unfortunately this definately not the case, was just trolling a plug for a bass :embarrass: .

    Not sure Dav, the rear treble was firmly in its mouth, presume just a predatory responce. And thats good reading Glenn, I was not sure if I was just winding in a piece of weed or something similar, I wound slowly feeling for kicks but it was not until it got within 10 foot of the yak that I was certain, I'm just glad I had my clutch set correct.
