If you try it, just make sure you’re standing behind your wife when a guy you’ve never met before hands her .357 Magnum. Even more so when it was her idea to go there in the first place :0)

I made this mash up recently, wish Rodney had been with me on some of these trips. It's been a year since the accident, he's sadly missed.

At the minute I’m waiting for some bits and pieces to arrive for a mini refit of my Outback. It’s rubbish having to wait for the post to arrive from abroad, just couldn’t source what I needed in the UK. I should hopefully be good to go by mid-October.
I want to hit 5 from 7, Pike, Zander, Common Skate, Conger, Blue Shark, Bass or a specimen Perch. All from my kayak. I might allow myself a substitute if I don't fish for Bass, maybe a Tope. Other than the Perch and Pike I won’t be precious about the proportions of the others, but I won’t be lacking ambition on that front. Doing this from my Outback will mean a lot of travelling and a reliance on others to a point regarding involvement and planning.

Once or twice a year I head to this spot, normally to float
fish for the Wrasse that inhibit the kelp here. It was a traditional trip for
Rodney and me over the years, tragically he passed away last September. We had
a lot of fun here, plenty of fish - good times. I’ve used lures and ledgered for
them but there’s something about just watching a float bob in the waves. Rodney
thought so too, I stuck with this method today.

Going back a number of years when it was in better condition I had some memorable days and nights on here, Conger, Wrasse and Cod including a double shot of 12 pounds and 5 pounds-happy days! It was interesting viewing it from a different angle and using the Lowrance to have a look over the detail on both sides of the structure.
The plan was to scratch around the legs. It produced 16 species the last time Gordon tried this. So, the re-match from a few weeks back was on!

If you’ve ever found yourself somewhere on the spectrum of becoming obsessed with one objective check this short film out,£2 on demand @ Vimeo. I can’t say that it cheered me up to be fair, but it is thought provoking. Particulary when you can recognise a little part of yourself in the storyline.

I appreciated catching a couple of Bass tonight, yep, not very large but certainly welcome. With the pace of life at the minute I can feel the season moving faster than I want it to. I’m not sure being relaxed about my objectives is working for me… : 0)
