Solent Kayak fishing trip
Day out on kayaks from south coast. Beautiful spring day with neap tides, light winds and sunny skies. Four of us set out on the two Malibu Twos in search of Bass. Low tide incoming. Despite lots of trawling and fishing with rag, dug from the beach, no bites. Saw plenty of schoolies and a few bigger ones feeding on fry in less than a couple of feet of water just off the spit but just couldn't tempt one. Nevertheless a lovely day for a paddle. Had a workout on the way back with wind and tide against us. Lots of Brent Geese about and surprisingly very little boat traffic. Lots of enthusiasm but just that little bit early in the year perhaps.
