Lads, off out tomorrow for the day off Baggy point. Fished there a few times but with little luck !!! Were going to be out for the day, weather (at moment) is not too bad but wet. Any ideas or marks around that aera :whistling:whistling pm if you like.

Thanks in advance

Personally, I wouldn`t fish any of the marks at Baggy in the wet!The higher rocks leading to the marks will be extreamely slippy.Even the path leading to flat rock will be a mud bath!There is a rope to help you though.Flat rock would be the only mark I`d fish all day.

Just seen the boat bit, DOH!:bangin::bangin:

Hey Leigh

The N Devon boat people eh....??? Given a pilot escort through the blokades and across the channel and they semi navigated/ washed in over the bar to find assylum in the relative comfort of North Devon?? There they now work on building sites, in bars and restaurants... with benefits???
They might suggest you go mullet fishing at th CV however it's the wrong time of year for that!!

Or did I get that all wrong...

*looks around*

Anyway.... If it were I... I might experiment with drifting through the gap between baggy and baggy leap pot dodging with shads, eel and live joey on portland rigs for the bass as a new experience. Looks bassy as!!

What size boat you out on???

You got a chart plotter??

Hopefully one of the regulars will be along in a bit with an educated answer

is that why people have ****** eyes in appledore then matt...??..:whistling..pmsl

as puffy says,,drift baggy leep..but only if youve got a plotter?..surf breaks on the race here over low,plus its full of pots.biggish tides still,and could be bad visability with the predicted weather so dont take any risks...baited feathers on the inside of baggy(puts side)is deffo worth a go aswell.small pollack,gurnards etc..at anchor on the clean ground should be ray if you can get through the dogs..lol..have a good un

Wilkeybarkid has covered it really !!.
Deffo go careful if the swell is up, expecially on a big running tide.... can get rough inside the Baggy leap marker & baggy rocks, much the same as Morte Stone etc.

the surfers use the inside offshore reef (wheelers stone) as a visual for the surf conditions on the beach.
Usually if the waves are breaking on the reef (near the end of baggy, puts side - Wheelers stone), then the waves are decent on the beach.
I am still to try out the deep float tactic with a live joey, coz it is a bass hotspot and certain times. other than that Launce could pay off ??!!..
Failing that, like wikey said, good old baited feathers usually pull something up.

There is also a good Tope hotspot about a mile directly off Baggy point...Maybe worth a try.

Goodluck mate...hopefully tightlines !!

Also get a chart Leigh. Wannafish has bought one recently. PM him for details of number etc.. and then look at the features. It goes a long way to working out where the fish might be and how you might like to fish for them. Very useful for safety as well.
Sat at work at lunchtime the other day building up a mental picture of the area. :thumbs:

Gotta agree with Poughill cant beat a plotter & fishfinder...
For both safety & likely fishy spots !!....
First time this year I have both, for years I was using the old - landmark and eye's as my GPS/Plotter..then locating the mark on the fishfinder - some times I could never find the spot !!..now I wouldnt be without !!..

Yeah was meaning a paper chart Mr Pix. Also useful in case the nav systems go down. Having been out with and without plotter... as you say... visual reference is just not enough... especially as there's some hellish water and reef out there as you guys well know :help:

Navigating the bar alone could be a shocker if any swell comes up and the fog comes in. The best electronics you can affort are a must imho. Not an area to cut cost really.

See this link for sheer horror!!!!!

Billynobass.

Just a thought, I brought the Standfords Chart pack 14 off my boat this week, they are at my house, if you want to borrow them mate....I live in Ilfracombe....I shouldnt need them back for a week.
(Back-up incase I lose power to the chart plotter).
Give us a p.m, im in all night...

Classic PMSL :whistling:whistling

Thanks lads, drifting might be the answer. Plotter and fishfinder we have. Looks that me might get wet but the winds light !!!!!!
We will see what happens.

well.....................................

Went out, slightly bumpy headed for baggy. The idea was to look, if too bumpy move around into Puts for shelter. Got just off baggy 1.5 after high......... even more bumpy, quick chat safety first, if wind picks up were here until tide changes. So turned around, first 2 waves over bow, completly soaked, glasses gone, tackle nearly over back (would not have been any wetter if dived in):help::help: headed in abit quicker !!!!!!

Fun and games !!!!

We were never in too much trubble, quick boat, so we knew we could make it back before too late....

A very wet leigh.
