Cornwall Fishing and Surf Summary

Just spent lovely two weeks in Cornwall. Some highlights were good Pollack and Mackerel session near Porthscatho - just casting a weighted eel over reef from the kayak on outgoing tide. Must have caught about a dozen Pollack to 2lb. Catching some lovely Bass on outgoing tide on south coast. Biggest about 4lb. Catching Mackerel on the kayak off St. Ives sun out and sea like glass. Priveleged encounter with pod of dolphins, including a small calf, off Godrevy whilst my brother and I fished from the kayak. Also caught Mackerel and Pollack off Towan Head and Praa (but no Bass).

Surf wise great 4ft glassy evening at Penhale, average 3ft days on Fistral and an enjoyable little longboard session at Crantock surfing rights from the rivermouth. Some lovely days on the beach at Watergate (dolphins again - came in and rode waves), Treyarnon (great bodyboarding and rockpools), Praa and Godrevy.

Was hoping to get out and catch some more carp on the fly today but the rain has set in hence time to blog!

These Bass and Mackerel were for the table - I only take what the family will eat.
