Fishing through the winter

Bar my first attempted fishing launch where I didn't actually get to wet a line, I'd yet to blank. The fish weren't large but they were plentiful. A multitude of whiting, pouting and dogfish where the mainstay of the catch with the odd scorpion fish and rockling thrown in for good measure.

After a good few trips I decided it was time for a evening trip. I was confident with the yak and my abilities, I had the required stern light and a quick phone call to the coastguard saw me launching into the evening... what a fabulous experience!!

The weather was perfect, a chilly winters evening... I couldn't wait to get out there!

Fishing at night was something truly special, a very light onshore breeze created an eerie silence, the stern lamp a comforting glow around the yak.. this was living!!
