Back out to sea , the salt , the spay and the waves .
I enjoyed the paddle more than anything else .
It was tough heading to some promising ground , we certainly had to play safe .
The weather forecast was right with light northerly , and with nothing to stop the wind we had to shelter behind...
Not touching the rod for a while and missing the feel of the paddle was hard enough . But we had to stay still and wait . Glad our sport is not too crowded and we can distance yourself in the big outdoors Scotland can provide . Anyway the minute they say you can take the rod with you we went ...
We found some nice weather this week , very cold but calm .
So we went for a paddle and took our fishing rods .
What a lovely spot of fishing .
Islands and islands .
Good sport on light tackle .
Friends and newcomer .
Even some fish for tea .
Great adventure made in Scotland ...
Picked a good day this time , light wind and bitterly cold we decided to head back to sea .
Late November and still some mackerel .
Perfect condition .
Good fishing .
Small team .
Perfect day .
Fantastic sport .
Back to sea this week ( kayak Monday ) we went towards Ardrossan . We really struggle hooking anything . The tide and wind was a little too strong and drift fishing was near impossible . Never the less we enjoyed the paddle and stayed affloat . The little group is now performing well and we all...
We headed west this week and added new faces to our kayak group .
It was choppy on the water .
Fishing super light for the mackerel was fun .
We paddled miles .
Should have done better in heavy sea .
My buddy did well . Nice pollock , bucket full of mackerel .
Hardest part of the...
This week we decided to head back to the sea , the big open space , the elements . The weather was just about right and we added new faces to our little group . Safety in number we headed to the sandy beach .
A bit fresh . Enjoy the video .
With tides and wind against us staying affloat was...
We always look forward to our next adventure , we check the weather and always try to enjoy the best Scotland has to offer . Ardrossan is good paddling wise , the sea wall offer some shelter and there is always the possibility to visit the island .
I retraced our trip using google maps ...
This week we had no other option but to go shelter . The wind was fairly gusting early morning , we went .
We tackled 3 topics . Fishing with a reliable friend for safety , winter kayaking and how to keep warm ,
light spinning for pollock . Enjoy the short video .
Fishing was limited to the...
It's Christmas time here in Scotland and we had to take full advantage of this calm spell , the weather that is . It was a really cold start on Christmas eve and the troops were ready to go and adventure once more .
Full report of our trip .
All geared up off we went .
Great paddle ahead...
This year kayak monday and Christmas eve are on the same date . Late shopping madness or fishing , we opted for the coolest of the two , fishing . How did we do ? Well I have made a short video , informative .
It was a cold morning , sunny with very light wind , just perfect this time of the...
I enjoy fishing light , working those little lures just above the kelp bed . From time to time I can feel a fish nudging the lure , anticipating a good take . Once the fish is on I set the drag accordingly , the rod won't break ! I enjoy catch and release and most fish go back and sound keeping...
This week's weather was perfect , light wind we travelled to Ardrossan .
I set up light mainly targeting pollock and wrasse .
The group was healthy , 7 kayaks .
Sport was good too . Some nice pollock still about in december .
We stopped amongst the sharp rock to refuel .
It's getting cold but the sea is inviting us .
I have managed a small video :
After a warming paddle we found some fish .
Using lrf rods we found some sport .
Found some wrasse too .
lovely wrasse .
A cold day out to play we finished with a sunset .
Dinner sorted too , It's never...
We always enjoy the sea , the fresh air and the big spaces . It was time to head back to the Clyde , the west coast of Scotland near Ardrossan looked perfect . It's december now and it's fresh . We dressed up accordingly to withstand the cold , took advantage of a high tide and went .
This week we fancied a little trip out to sea . More and more kayakers are joining in on our weekly trips enjoying the great outdoor safely . At low tide it was a fair trek reaching the water .
The wind was moderate and the sea lumpy we paddled .
It was like roller coaster at times ...
