Set out today with high hopes.
Wind had dropped a bit from last couple of days and veered nw which made conditions more comfortable, high water was 4:30ish, so the mission was to get out there for low water, gather some mackeral live baits and fish the entire flood over the reefs in search of some bass.

Left Mylor and headed out into a very pleasant sea with the sun starting to shine and the temp increasing all the time.
Steamed for a bit and stopper off to feather up some bait. This proved harder than expected with one being caught first drop then nothing more for an hour...
Tried various spots, dropoffs etc an finally managed to gather ten odd. Really hard going though, never usually this difficult. During the mackeral hunt we certainly had a variety of other fish and should we have been on a species hunt we wouldve been doing great.
Red and Tub Gurnards, Pollack, Poor Cod, Whiting, a rather aggressive Gar, 5 Codling up to 1 1/2lb(nice to see:), Cuckoo and Ballan Wrasse and a Red Band fish. Beautiful colours on the Wrasse, Gurnards(love those deep blue eyes) and the electric blue and pink edges of the Red Band fish's fins.
Moved to our reef and fished the entire flood to high slack water without as much off a sniff:( Lovely breeze with tide pushing us along too. We must have covered every square foot of that reef to no avail. We then fished the first 2 of the ebb at a different reef on the way back with not a nibble either.
Dont know what was up today, have never fished it without something nailing the livebaits but certainly they werent having it this time.
Cracking day though to be out and just think i couldve been couped up in the office:))
Out again Sunday.

Anyone else having much luck on the bass on the reefs around Falmouth this last week?

Cheers
Chris
