Reading the above...if you know where this sort of ground is in Mounts Bay then all you need to do is give it a try at dawn or at dusk...use your surface lures on the shallower rough ground and you should nail your first bass........I have a few areas in mind where there is lots of rocks, gullies, sea weed beds, and those famous 'fingers of rocks' that provide lots of cover for the incredible Bass . ......
I know most of the 'fun' in fishing is exploring new areas and finding your own spot. And i'm always out rock hopping even without a rod just finding a nice rock with access to a gullie or two. Any ideas would be great though!
