Your best bet for a Bass right now in my opinion would be a bait on the bottom especially evening night fishing. Tregantle fishes well late evening and nighttime. Big bury is always a good bet, you can dig Lug at low tide but weed can be a problem after hot weather like this.

I was mostly on lures fishing the early morning rising tides, as you say the bass are probably still feeding on the bottom and the mackerel aren't here in great numbers yet.

My mate from Cawsands fished from his kayak the other night for a few hours out as far as the Yellow bouys and he had one small Mackerel.

Many moons ago we used to fish a mark between Penlee point and Rame that was accessed by a rope that was permanently there. I haven’t been there for years so don’t know what the score is with accessing it now. I do remember it being precarious, but all the very best marks always are.

On the other side of Rame Head if you climb down to Queener Point then come back on yourself round to the left over the rocks about 500 yd’s there are a couple of really deep gulleys which used to produce sizeable wrasse. Not really any good for eating but great sport if you get stuck into them with fairly light gear on a bass rod.

I’m tempted to dig my gear out. It’s about this time of year now that the small-eyed Ray are showing on the north Cornish coast. Nothing better than on an evening like this doing a bit of spinning for mackerel at last light before trying to land a ray on a sand eel bait after the suns gone down.

I won't be using it as the boat is kept in the water.

Same one I reckon it's been there for years. Never tried for Small Eyed Ray may give that a crack, I seem to remember you mentioning Mawgan Porth? What sort of distances are you fishing? I've been told another good mark for the is Mother Ivy's off the rock with the spike.

That's mighty kind of your Lordship. I may take you up on that for a short while, I'll be in touch if needed. Thanks/OK

Yeah on the north side of Mawgan Porth. You walk the coastal path from Mawgan Porth or park up a bit closer in Trenance then walk the coastal path heading north towards Bedruthen Steps then literally turn left to trek down to the tip of the arrow in the pic below. I retraced it last year and there is only a very faintly trodden 'path' off the main coastal path. Where you are fishing from is a small granite plateau about 30-40 ft  above the water.  As you can see from the view from above, you’re on the headland so there’s always a good depth of water even at low tide and you don’t need to cast out miles. You’re just knocking it out onto pure sand. It’s a heavenly spot and you would certainly never just stumble across it. It is dangerous if you're not careful because you're night fishing for the ray so a decent Petzl headlamp is a must.

Failing that you can still get the small-eyeds off the beaches aswell but you only fish an hour either side of low tide. I’ve had them off the beach at Woollacombe and Widemouth Bay a bit farther north. Only ball ache is off the beach you’re fishing in waders and constantly moving your tripod.

Happy memories.

Full marks for a really in depth reply Czarks! That stretch of coast I know fairly well and it's one of the most beautiful views in Britain. I may give it a go soon.

Anchored off Ostend, gagged with Mackerel and Scad, 99% too small but thousands and thousands of them.

I finally had a bit of success at the weekend in the devils point area, 2 bass both under the 42 but one of them was a nice fish, two smallish pollock and a lovely mackerel that fought like a mako shark.

Good to hear, the fish have been here for at least 2 weeks, I was catching them 20' up the coast then.

They might have come round the top to get here, bypassed the Channel.

Nice Les, what bait were you putting out for the bass, or were you spinning on lures?
