I spent most of last night on Puts, fished it from 8pm until 3 am.
Armed with Black stinky horrible Lug, Squid, Sandeel, Rag and Crab

Result=Not a touch, not a bite, I even got the waders on and plugged for Bass for well over an hour leaving the 2 rods on the stand behind me.

I lived in Cornwall last year and must say the Fishing was never this poor, I blanked the odd time but this is every week for the last 6!

I'm not slating Devon it may well be the same in Cornwall this year but its like there are super trawlers/Pair Trawlers working the whole coastline, something just does not add up.

Reading the posts on here there are a few struggling, I have tried several locations from Watermouth down to Westward Ho! Nothing!

Help, I just want a fish or 2...........:cry:

Its not been that good down here but I'm picking up the odd fish, I'm buying a kayak soon so I will be able to target more spots :boat: think its the future of angling, and you get fit at the same time.

I have just sold my Kayak in order to raise some funds for a boat.
Prowler Ocean Kayak ride on top 15ft 4 I think it was.

Great fun and I once went from Padstow to Boscatle some 8 nautical miles, I was crocked when I got out though.

Great crack where are you picking up the odd fish, Tesco or Sainsburys!

Regards,


Pete

TBH with the Ho reports at the minute it seems Devon is fishing better than down here m8, keep at it and i'm sure it'll pay off. We went out after rays tonight, still no sign of them, where are they???? did get a few other species tho, but it still seems like we are scratching!

I saw two pair trawlers working together less than a mile out last night, things aren't looking great not even a single bass from usual productive mark last night.
Got to say its the worse year I've had.

Someone once said to me if you want to catch fish Buy a Boat.
It is slow this year and I have had enough of scratching around for the odd fish. I am getting a boat! Until then I will plod on....
