His first bass from the kayak with a lure. Over the moon.   

Another bag of mackerel, some small pollack about a dozen garfish and nice bass around 2lb this morning. All returned apart from the mackerel.   

Out again this morning we had well over 100 mackerel, we were throwing them back. A couple nice bass and a small pollack. Here's my mate with one around 4.5 pound.

We don't start targeting them until September/oct now really. They'll start coming in dribs and drabs til then I'd imagine mate.

Apparently a lad had a few hundred just off the eddy today but had to follow them around to catch em

I had another little chuck earlier on this beach, no luck but was waylaid with rock pooling and body boarding, so I had a swim (fresh to say the least) and finished with a rattler....

Yeah that's it mate but since I can remember we always used to go around June and it was not unusual to catch mackerel every cast off the shore, once they were in. I can remember catching over hundred on many occasions, used to take what we wanted for the pot and put the rest back. Great sport on light tackle. It's definitely changed now, they are turning up in Autumn/Winter in numbers whereas they used to disappear at that time of year. We had a bag of decent sized ones last week, great sport, but not in in any quantity yet.

Your right mate 26th January this year Brixham Breakwater, harbour was full of Mackerel.

Had an hour or so off Hopes Nose in the kayak the other day. Used to be a great spot but so over fished now. Didn’t get a single one there. Headed round to towards Torquay and had a couple. Seemed to be having more luck with small pollack. I don’t think you can beat fresh mackerel on the BBQ. Like to chuck the dogs a few too.

Like you say fresh Mackerel takes some beating!

Was going to fish from the kayaks off Berry head the next couple of weeks. Might give somewhere else a try instead.

Been off St Austell for the last couple of days spinning, not a bite. No sign of whitebait pushed to the shoreline, really quiet. Was peaceful at high tide just before 5am though 😳
