Am I the worst fisherman in Cornwall?!

I got really into fishing last year an have been totally bitten! I am desperate to catch a bass and have all the right gear and have been studying hard to find the right time/place. No luck at all aside the odd dogfish mackerel etc. can anyone help or offer guiding/coaching sessions?

not sure around falmouth but around here just lob out some lug worm and wait . fish a beach at various states of the tide to find out when is best . try posting in the southwest forum

I've had bass off pow and greenbank pier both on ragworm. Pow is hard to fish during the day cus of people and boats, but green bank pier is less crowded, I've had gar fish, bass, thornback, mackerel off greenbank and bass, pollock, whiting off pow at night.

Hang in there!!!

Dont give up just yet, i didnt catch any bass last year. But Sunday I had one out of my local river mark bang on low tide (Lugworm bait),
and Monday i had another small bass off of plymouth hoe (left over Lugworm).

As already suggested, try fishing tide in, fish the tide out, even fish at low tide. Vary some baits if you can and be patient.

It will all come together in the end... (hopefully)
