Went out for a couple of hours today with Stormy (Nath) and his dad.

We fished the same spot as yesterday but today there was a little more swell. Water was pretty sandy and milky from the cold but we ended up with 1 fish each. Nath would have had 2 (one of around 7 or 8lb!!!!) if he hadn't tried to lift it the beast up the rocks rather than walking it round to safety. Gutted for him! Would have been great to get a piccy! :wackit: :oops:

Again it was pretty hard work really, but with Nath's other fish and Roberts both being well over 3lb at least we proved that it's still well worth trying for a bass or two!! I managed to skillfully catch the smallest of the day at about 1.5lb on the XLayer just like yesterday.

Think Nath is putting up a proper report on his blog later.

:stupid:

Well done chaps :clap:

Question though... Why is it you guys are still getting tucked in to 7 or 8lb fish in December? Is it simply a case of you being further south so the sea temps are higher?

Or is it just that the force is strong with you two? :laserswords:

Cornwall's climate is milder than the rest of the country as a result of its southerly latitude and the influence of the Gulf Stream, however its proximity to the sea also makes Cornwall's weather relatively changeable. The moist, mild air coming from the south west brings higher amounts of rainfall than eastern Great Britain, however not as much as more northern areas of the west coast. Winters are mild, and frost or snow are uncommon apart from in the central upland areas. The average annual temperature for most of Cornwall is 9.8 to 12 degrees Celsius (49.6 to 53.6 °F), with slightly lower temperatures at higher altitude....... Most of Cornwall enjoys over 1541 hours of sunshine per year...... Pendennis Point in Falmouth is the warmest place on mainland Great Britain, with an average temperature of 11.4°C (52.5°F).
The Gulf Stream, bringing warm air from the Caribbean north-east toward Europe, makes Cornwall's weather a lot milder than other places in the world at the same latitude, such as Newfoundland. Also due to the Gulf Stream, Cornwall has the UK's only area of sub-tropical climate, at the extreme south-west of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Palm trees are a common sight in these areas. The sub-tropical nature has resulted in a number of botanical gardens, such as Trebah and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

This is why Bass stay here longer than other parts of the country, the reason why our catch report has not been all that before is due to the fact that we are still in the stone age...but this will be changing next year!!

I reckon we might carry on catching odd fish this winter. Already I think that the things we've learnt this year especially are starting to be really noticeable. I know for myself that I'm naturally doing things that I wouldn't have done last year when it got cooler and the results speak for themselves a bit at the moment (although I know it's still ONLY December). The (small) tides and times aren't even particularly good, nor is the water clarity, yet we're still catching pretty consistently. Its a shame we don't have any really big tides coming up to see what we could really do with it at the moment. A proper low spring at dawn or dusk could see really good things happen still I think.
