I'm not fortunate enough to live near where i fish for Bass so decisions have to be taken when to go to South Devon. I know depending on conditions i could try other areas but for the sake of gaining valuable local knowledge, for the moment I'm sticking to this stretch of coast from Start Point to the river Yealm. I've caught the most fish during or after some kind of south westerly weather front, so my thinking is this. The tides around the new moon over the summer months are the big ones so should be a good time to go but if the wind is blowing from the north or NW, like it is now, then it's pushing the water off shore. Does it matter? So, perhaps it's worth waiting for the wind to come in from the SW and then go, even though the tides will be smaller, the conditions may be better? I fish for 2 or 3 days usually. I realise there's no straight answer to this but your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
