    Are there any wrecks that a yaker can reach, 1 or 2 miles off the scarborough coast. Or are there any good spots around the Scarborough coast that often give good rewards.

    I don't know, but I'll have a look on the chart and if there are (Spawney is probably the best one to tell us, or Quint...or one of those seasoned anglers) anyway, I'll happily accompany you out there when the weather warms up a bit.

    there are plenty of Wrecks within kayak range, but they are also well within small boat range and as such are well fished. maybe some of the boat anglers have some input as to whether there are enough fish on them to be worth the bother. I suspect that the really productive wrecks are those in the more than 5 miles offshore range ?

    thanks for the input. Ive been looking for some charts/maps to see the exact area of the wrecks online but cant find any that have co-ordinates, or infact wrecks on them. Only a few ive seen have wrecks posted on, but these arent accurate or up to date.

    Also the wrecks that are a good distance from a port. Some of the wrecks in rhb are close to shore but not fished as often as some of the ones straight out from Whitby or Scarborough. They are good ling wrecks too in the late summer.

    Dave last year when we went out with Killer in the morning we expected to be heading to some of the further out wreck marks...and as we headed out some of the other Whitby charters were heading out full speed....Killer abrubtly turned right and after about 15 minutes started hunting about to find the wreck and away we went....straight into fish less than 2 miles off. All day we never ventured more than maybe 3-4 miles off sometimes very much closer especially when infront of the Nth cheek of RHB when we were close enough in to pick out the get downs at Hawsker etc.

    So I guess at times the close in wrecks are worth a shot....when though that is the golden question !

    The better wrecks off Filey tend to be the 6 milers.There are some wrecks inside of that that might be worth a shot,Cps is the man to ask... tight lines

    You will need perfect conditions if you target the wrecks on a yak, no wind and small tide, otherwise you'll soon be over them and it will be very hard work going back and forth, the best times would be dawn and dusk before any sea breezes pick up

    Hi Dan,

    Ling are resident to the wrecks, they rarely venture very far away from them in order to feed. This is one thing that saves them from the commercial onslought. I dont know what others would say but I think small ling up to about 4 or 5 pounds may stray further from home then the big daddies. ??

    ...not wishing to put a dampener on folks hopes & aspirations, but cps will, I'm sure, agree that down Filey way the wrecks inside of 5 miles have been very poor the last few years, in fact a lot outside 5 miles have too!!

    To be honest, we've had more sport & fun 200yds off than we have several miles off...

    It's maybe better further north or south?

    (just remembered something...) :snore:

    ...but on a more positive note, quite a few years ago, probably 10-12yrs, we heard that through winter, there were numbers of codlings on a "wreck" in the North Bay called the Betty Hindley. I put wreck in inverted commas as it was heavily broken up with explosives as being in shallow water it was considered a danger to shipping, & is probably no more than bits of plate now - certainly it took a bit of finding even on a decent sounder.

    Anyway, it's (from memory) 3/4 mile off, & for a few years produced good numbers of generally smallish codlings, plus some of the biggest dabs I've seen round our way!! If anyone's got a copy of "Dive Yorkshire" (I loaned 2 copies out over the years & got neither back!!) there are coords in there, plus transits for it.

    Cheers
