Well the various weather forecasts I looked at gave a few different options but the general concensous was for light winds swinging Northerly but staying light.With that in mind I got in touch with Rob and arranged to meet up at Hornsea south shore .I d already spoken to Fudge ,who wanted some re-entry to the yak tuition so we agreed if the sea no good for fishing then we could at least show him how to get back on and off. At Hornsea the obligtory fish and chips were taken on board from "Sullivans" and I found the other two already at the slipway ready to go for 6pm. The sea was ok little bit of wind chop but not bad. We set of with a nervous Fudge asking asking us how far out we were going as shore angling was his forte,dropping in the names of the top nth east anglers he fished with " I'o,Ray Maddison, plus all the Holderness anglers, we never realised the company we were with !! :wink: :wink: Anyway around the 3/4-1 mile mark we dropped anchor and also the crab pots went out hoping we could bag a lobster or two. It was then we found out that we couldn t pass on the anchor techniques to Fudge as he'd forgotten his anchor..lol. :wink: :wink: As it happened Fudge caught a good bag of Mackeral jigging on the drift but with the strong tide it looked hard work fishing a short drift then paddling back up tide. At anchor Rob and I both had bites to bait that ended up also as mackeral,the hope of the first Holderness yak caught Skate still only a hope ! It was after about an hour of very pleasant fishing that the weather started to change and a squally north east wind started to whip the sea up to the point that it was washing right over the side of the yak and we decided that we should up anchor before it got much worse. Fudge had already set off in so we pulled the anchors up then the pots,no lobsters unfortunately just a few velvets that went back. The paddle back in was interesting with us having to lean heavily into the cross ways swells just to stay upright.the yaks really can take some sea as by this point the water was breaking white with some big waves running over the sides. Eventually we got back in and a quick update to the coast guard just wasn't been received ...must be down to location on the beach at Hornsea.I rang on the mobile and was given a big thankyou for going to the rouble of ringing in as they thought our broken message at sea had been for a tow back in !! They do a great job and have said they appreciate the updates from us when going out and more important when back in. No pics as forgot my camera,we did spend an hour showinh Fudge how to use tide wind and swells to aid the re-entry to the yak and after a few practices he got it down so hopefully should he get tipped at least getting back on won't be a problem. Cheers Kayak jellyworm.out !
