Today I wasn’t expecting to get out for a paddle but on hearing the Mrs and kids had planned to go out I packed the gear and loaded the yak taking minimal gear and decided just to troll some plugs about
I had a look at the conditions and decided on the long paddle to Redcar scaurs it didn’t take long for the rod tip to rattle round but only a Mackerel but not a bad start
There was to be no further action over the next couple of miles until I hit the scaur edges when the rod tapped and then moments later the rod slammed hard round thumping violently all the hallmarks of a Bass take but by the time I prized the rod from the holder the fish had gone.
After an hour or so of trolling around likely looking drop offs with only one more mackerel to show for it I switched plugs for the long paddle back and was halted by this little Coalie showing an interest in my offering
I hugged the surf break on the way back to my launch spot but no fish were to take an interest today so had a quick half hour messing in the surf
