On the evening of 27 January 1974, a severe storm caused the Sugar boat to partially sink off Greenock . This week we decided to kayak across the Clyde and check what's left .
Enjoy the video .
We started from the esplanade at Greenock , headed towards the wreck , fished , then paddle back , fished again tied on a buoy then finished off at Clyde port and those massive crane .

Such an interesting find but really snaggy .

Had to dropshot for anything , lure fishing there is near impossible .
First fish of the year , a colley and then a mini scorpion . Short spined or long spined , you decide .

More drop shot action tied on in 50 ft of water .
Couple of dab there (i think) and species nb 3 .

Finishing off under the big massive crane . No takers on the lure unfortunately .

I imagine there must be some bigger fish under those cranes - plenty of hidey holes by the look of it. Do you ever try big baits when in the kayak?

Yes , only when I am tied on to buoys or anchored big bait would work . I prefer lure fishing though Xflyman .
