Had a cracking day out. weather was spot on, water like gin, no swell......got that summer feeling already.

We ventured into some more unknown ground for us and got quite excited at what was found. Walked miles, fell over loads, lost one plug, enjoyo :spoo:

Si, some very fishy looking spots there! Good research for the spring I am sure. Did you move any fish?

Amazing spots there.

Has anyone got any tips for fishing marks like the one in the second picture where there is a fair bit of kelp around you feet? Do you bring the lure to the edge and then try to flick the lure back to you feet or just fish with weedless softies only?

nice day out si, next month will see the sea trout strating to run and the pars come down to go to sea then you will get the bass starting to feed on the small fish and if warm the crabs will be peeling something for the bass to come in close to shore for its is going to be a good year for us boys down here .

Is that the little baitcaster getting a work out in the 1st pic Si?
Yup, well spotted Andy, its only 5'2" or something.....still, JCMR is only a short-arse so it fits him well ;)

Managed to move a bit of wind Tim while squatting down in the rockpools having a mooch around....but no fish, ideal place for them though....you been here?

hi si,is that carfai 3rd one down,cheers daz
Spot on there mate....you fished it? Access looks well trying, even for two well seasoned climbing aficionados........maybe get round at low tide and then climb out, or maybe kayak in?

Some beautiful grounds covered and cannot wait for the warmer times :)

well, I didn't manage to lose anything within the kelpy grounds in these pictures, just tug tug the plug back and hold on as I'm certain there will be some ladies hanging around in them stalks. You could also fish it weedless if you felt that way inclined ;-)

You are lucky having this type of ground so close Mark, it screams of good fishing. I bet the place is a shit in the summer months with all the tourists though?

We got there at half tide mate, so the RHS was already flooded, and that looked the easiest way in. Definite no go from the LHS unless you want to get wet! I'm not too bothered by heights.....its only the landing that hurts!
We'll meet up around here when your down, we also checked out Whitesands area, into that 2nd bay to the N.......WOW

Si, not sure I recognise it but it looks mouthwatering. I guess you will have a few aces up your sleeve for the April Bumble with all this exploring? The first photo is the one I love - you can just smell the bass....
