Howdy folks,

I'm coming down to Cornwall for 10 days holiday on the 14th May, I'm staying in Hayle

I normally fish the rock marks from prussia cove to porthcurno, mostly for wrasse and pollack, but I want to fish more of the lizard this year.

Can anyone suggest any new marks for me to try (preferably without mountain goat get downs), I'd appreciate location, species bait and tactics.

Thanks in advance

Fished Porhkerris last Sunday for 3 hours. Took home a bag of 20 Mackerel and threw another 10 smaller ones back. Plenty of others were having similar luck. Also caught a Gar of almost 2lbs - interesting! It's a bit like shooting ducks in a barrel if you use feathers, but if that gets too 'easy' use a float with sand eel. I fished a falling tide, but it seems that any tide is good at the moment. It costs £2 to park and another £1 per person to fish, but no long hike and marks easy to get to.

Can I say that I'm not adverse to a long walk, just that I like marks that don't need ropes to get to them!

Hi Fawlty,

I'm back now and can't say I fished much, I only got through a pound of rag and a few packets of sandeels and some of that went in the bin :eek:

I tried porthkerris to try and avoid the wind last weekend, but there was about 40-50 anglers there. I would like to try that place again on a weekday, because I saw quite varied species coming out.

I tried to get to some of my favourite rock marks, but with the wet weather and wind, I didn't get down to them and almost came a cropper.

I did get a bit of snorkling in though but didn't see nothing apart from seals, spider crabs and the occasional big wrasse.

There were reports of some bass being taken at praa when I was down there, but couldn't persuade the family to sit on a beach facing the wind :confused:

The upside was I managed to get out wrecking on Viking from Penzance for a day and had some nice pollack

I will have to wait until September now, but that is just me and the missus who is as barmy about fishing as I am (her biggest ambition at the moment is to catch a conger). I'll get more fishing in next time.

Thanks for the tips guys
