I took a quick look at the sea on the way home from work and it looked pretty good for a bit of kayak fishing throughout the evening. A quick look at XC weather revealed a slightly increasing wind from the west so I decided on Robin Hoods Bay to get a bit of shelter. I got to Boggle hole around 5.45 and launched soon afterwards, the ride across the bay was a rather bumpy one and I can only assume this was some form of tidal effect as the wind was non existant and there certainly was no swell in the water. After about an hour of being out there the water fell flat and the fish came on. I fished around North Cheek and trolled the old favourite Crystal Minnow up and down over the rock ledges. After a short while with no takes I sat and cast the plug whilst stationary. At the end of the retreive on my first cast a decent sized coalie leaps out the water after the lure. I actually ducked as I thought it was gonna hit me in the face. Basically i $hit myself as I just was not expecting that. I started trolling again and the fish started to come slowly but constantly. My first pollack to the yak took the red head yo zuri on the middle trebble. It fought like hell which anyone who has ever caught pollack on the yak will tell you is one of the most awesome feelings in Kayak fishing. The fish weighed about 5 pounds and I quickly put it out of its misery before recasting. Tomorrows tea nicely in the bag I could now concentrate on trying to get a bigger fish out. As the night wore on I had roughly 10 pollack upto 6lbs, but sadly not the double figure pollack that still eludes me. I also had a pleasant surprise of several large coalies upto around 4lb, its been a while since Ive seen any of that size. I also managed a few mackerel, but sadly no bass. En route back to the slipway therewas fish jumping all over in the bay with mackerel and coalies feasting on the spratts near to the shore at Robin Hoods Bay. All in all another amazing evening afloat. Lets hope the weather is kind and we can get lots more opportunities to get at the pollack before the end of October.
