This little cove is only yards from my home. I thought it looked kind of fishy (but what do I know?) so at high tide I tried my luck at a few different lures in all those nooks and crannies.

No luck, so now I am left not knowing

a) if there were any fish there at all
b) my choice of lures was not right to tempt them
c) my technique wasn't up to scratch

Does it look fishy to you more experienced guys?

I tried floating lures that dive on retrieve, heavier spinners, spoons, rubbery shads, eel-lookalikies, (in fact most of the stuff from my coars fishing box!). Also different speeds, smoothness etc.

Looks a tranquil place to fish. Quite jealous!! I suspect you're not doing much wrong. Maybe just try different rocky outcrops, alter the depth your float works at, different spinners, mix it up a bit. Fishing is all down to luck really.

Thanks. Not tranquil as that when there's a north wind blowing!

As a newcomer to sea fishing I dont have the confidence yet to know whether I am on the right or wrong track.

I appreciate your comments.

A few more attempts will probably help, maybe even try float fishing a bait to gague fish presence.

Have a look at the LRF section in the lure fishing forum. You'll get some good tips there, I bet some soft plastics would find the wrasse.

What is the seabed like there? If its pure sand that gets washed into there, there won’t be a lot of cover for fish to hide amongst. As said above, try a float, stick it close into the rocks and see what comes out and then adjust your lure set up for the next session for the species which are present.

Look at it at low tide and spot the deep gullies and any weed patches. Target these places when the tide is in. The water looks milky in the pic and it's still plenty early enough for spinning, so don't give up. Try at different states of tide as marks are not all the same. Onshore wind, bit of chop in the water or some fizz in it will also help. First light, last light, into darkness. Loads of things to try before you give up on it. Good luck and have fun!

Lure angling can be a bit hit or miss. One of the best tactics is to cover a lot of ground.

Try asking some questions in one of our Lure fishing forums :)

Low tide pic may help dose it empty at low and how deep do you think it is at low and high tide?

Also looking at the pic again ur not far from open water.
And it don't look to big how wide from the middle point to the opposite side and how far from open water to the back?
