Kayak(s): Wilderness 135 (on me lonesome)


Tide: High at 10

Weather:15 knot wind speed but very cold

Bait: Mackerel , squid , mussel , black lug

Rigs: Flowing trace

Results: 1 codling

Report:Decided on an early start this morning . Weather at home was mild with no breeze and things were looking good.Headed to killiney first as it was still dark when i got there i decided the surf was too much for me and i didnt want to be over turned and find my gear all over the beach :? So decided on a rough ground mark near dun laoighre. I knew i wouldn't have any shelter but i could launch easily.30 mins later i was launched and on my way.Headed towards the harbour itself and hooked up to a buoy,dropped a flowing trace with squid and mussel .Not a tap !!!Decided to paddle a hundred metres to another bouy and dropped down again . The bait wasnt touched.Changed bait to mackeral and again not a tap.Had a root through the bait bag and came across a half a lug rap.Sure no harm in trying i thought.Dropped down and straight away on to bites. Lovely,baited up again with lug and another knock that produced a codling no big size but glad to see him.Went to bait up again only to realize i had only 1 lug worm left. :evil: Dropped down again with bites straight away but no takers and then got snagged . Called it a day after that as i was a gobshite and didn't pack extra clothes . It was so mild at home i thouhgt a track suit under the dry suit would be grand but how wrong was I. Couldn't feel me hands or feet.Felt good to get on the water and i was targeting cod so wasn't a total failure.The pics are poor as the camera went dead and the spares were in the LED on the kayak so had to use the phone

Fair play for making the effort Anthony.
