Well the snow is STILL on the ground around here, not good from a bassing point of view.
I have been thinking about all the places I have fished this year, and started thinking about the marks I will be returning to next season.
|For me the most stunning mark I fished this year was one that Plugs took Greg, Andy and myself too. It was in the Kimmeridge area. Not 100% sure where, lots of wading and scrabbling to get there. Beautiful reefs, edges, and rocky headlands. Low clouds and steep rocky hillside behind us. In short it was everything you could hope for in a bass mark (lots of fish there too-somewhere) It was there that Andy and Plugs found a somewhat battered mag popper on the beach.
I will be back, and I hope the company is as good as it was last time.

So where will you be returning to???

North Cornwall.
fished there with BJF earlier in the year, and despite managing not to bother any fish myself, it was such a stunning bit of coastline, i just know i'll be heading back.
esp' if i can fit it in with a few work trips to the area.

With the amount of travelling you and your father do you must have scores of them up your sleeve ! To share some of them with us would be brilliant indeed :clap:

I have a few favourites sussed now, but there are a couple I visited (on the wrong tides sadly) later this season that I just know will hold fish. Also, I am longing to return to my favourite mark in Cardigan Bay that sadly didin't fish at all weel this year, but had been my hotspot of 2008. There's so many good-looking spots around south Pembs (as the Welsh boys will attest) that it's hard to narrow it to just one.

Welcome back any time Jez.

I wish I'd done more travelling around this year and seen a few more places. I'm at the point where I know my own area pretty damn well, and one mark in particular where I've been with both Henry and Nath is my favourite. On a sunny, summers day with a low spring tide it is quite beautiful. Deadly quiet, it's like you're in another world. I didn't really discover it until later in the year but will catch a few more there next year.

Definitely mate. Shame we didn't have it better when we were there. That was in the middle of a good fish catching spell as well. Sod's Law and all that. Could have been much better on the day. Was good the other day being there when Nath lost his big'n. I've had them to 6 there but it's always nice to see proof that the bigger boys are present. Will get the camera down there myself next year too. From a landscape point of view there were days this year when I'm sure even I could have grabbed some stunning shots. I'm tempted to even chuck some bait in the surf there one day... just to see what happens.

LOL, good plan. You forget how fit you actually are after a while of getting used to it. We almost made Ian spew a couple of months back!!! :muttley: Although to be fair to him it was on the most savage walk ever! Well, we walked it, Rob RAN! :horsesword: :clap:

This is a very special place to me, I named it "Lynn's Bay" One beautifull Summers day three years ago my wife (Lynn) and I were trolling a "deep diver" trough here when she nearly had the rod pulled out of her grasp a struggle ensued and a little later and a 5lb+ pollack was laying on the surface a quick photo and it was rejoining its kin, well i decided to have a "fish" here and in the space of an hour I had several more good Pollack and some fine Bass as well on hard and soft baits.
After this session I went back there over low water and discovered a Reef, a Sandy Cove and a good area of Kelp this together with a strong tidal flow made for a good mark, since that day I've been lucky enough to have discoverd many more "good marks" Lynn's bay may not be the most prolific for me in Bass terms but is the one place that gave me real confidence in what I was doing and as you all know without confidence your beaten before you start, I hope you like the photo.

I think I would like to make more of some of the places/marks i went to last year like Jersey, Portland and other marks down west. This year the weather seemd to get the better of me most visits. Lots of long distance travelling only to blank because of the conditions.
Good to meet some enthusiastic and very knowledgeable locals too.
