Hayle harbour,near St Ives.Hayle harbour is built on a tidal estuary,where at different states of the tide and weather most species of local inshore fish can be had from mackerel to bass and your usual flats(flounder,plaice)There is also a tidal pool nearby where gilthead bream have been rumoured to have been caught.Good fishing can be had year round in St Ives bay.
Hi all, on the question of big bass in the estuary.... I think there definitely are! I know of a 7 1/2lber caught a couple of years ago, with several 3 - 5 lbers....all on live s/eel....but numbers are dwindling because of the heavy impact of the boats in the mouth of the estuary all summer long!!
