    Well seeing the wife has gone to my daughters in Birmingham for the weekend I made the most of it and launched again today at North Landing. Got there for 8.30am, it was a nice sunny morning but with a cool breeze coming off the land. On inspection the sea looked good and usually in these circumstances under Bempton is like glass.

    Paddled out to just under Roll Up, a couple of charter boats were already out but they hadn't ventured that far down. I found our favourite piece of water and anchored up in about 35 ft.

    I had two rods prepared, one for conventional uptiding, this I baited with black lug, squid and cart and cast out ahead of me. There was a nice little bit of tide running through which would help with bite detection and hooking up.

    The other rod I rigged with a 3 hook flapper rig, baited this with small pieces of squid, mussel etc and basicly lowered under the kayak.

    Bites were very slow but first fish of the day was a little pouting..


    I had also had a couple of bites on the uptide rod but due to the lead snagging a lost the first fish, then I had another on but lost this half way in - I swore.

    Next the bit bashin rod went again and this ended up in a nice little wrasse - I never get fed up of seeing these lovely little fish :happy:


    Finally I had a good hook up on the uptiding rod and I landed a nice little cod, I was happy now :happy:


    This pulled the scales down to 3lb 6oz


    A lot of the charter skippers had now come to join me close in under the cliffs and it was a really pleasant day.

    I then had another little pouting on the scratching rod :happy:


    Finally I had another smaller cod on the uptiding rod but by this time I was running short of cart, the tide had just about stopped running and I was desperate for a pee.....A quick dash back to Thornwick for a break and something to eat, by this time the water was really busy, jet skis, motor launches - it was like the M1 out there :happy:



    Anyway I had a last hour drifting on the drogue and jigging with lead heads and feathers - couldn't get a touch, bit early yet maybe. Got back to North Landing for 4ish and found the beach full of tourist, I hate landing in that situation but anyway a cracking day. Back home now and all the gear rinsed off and put away or drying.

    Nice one,

    Your certainly putting the effort in Ken. It looks like you had a better day down there than we had today North of the Tyne. It was blowing a hooly off the land this morning when we were out. Even the charter boats were running for shelter.

    I managed to avoid the Pouting today thankfully....... :cheesy:

    Know what you mean about landing / leaving from North Landing when it's swarming with folk. I reckon it adds 15 mins to me getting on the water, just answering all the questions I get!

    Well done on the fish.

    well done Ken, my body has just stopped aching after saturday, dont think i could have survived another session yesterday, although after 6 hours of sitting on the beach for a whiting & was wishing i had gone.
    its ironic that now these species are gaining points they are no longer refered to by there full names.
    Oh no its a "F*$ki%g Pouting" or "B*llocks its a S*dding wrasse" etc
    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
