Funnily enough I caught my biggest bass ever 9lb15oz on a peeler in the Yealm by the first moorings when I was about 16. Like Seadog I've found loads of hardbacks in bass and even flounder but they aren't as meaty as peelers I think, I've tried using hard backs with shells pulled off but with no success.
I love plugging and catch loads of Bass but it's rare to have one over three pounds very rare to have a five pounder usually if it hits the water in front of their noses and they grab it. Big fish usually follow then tell you to feck off. I usually fish a 3" sinking plug over flooded reefs and gullies the shore between Kingsands and Picklecombe fort can work for a couple of hours up to high tide.

Back when we used to fish regularly my mate had a reasonably sized conger off the jetty in the Yealm at Newton Ferrers one night (in front of the old Yealm hotel). He shit himself. Laughing

Peeler crab was always the killer bait for me in that part of the world, particularly the Kingsbridge estuary around Salcombe and East Portlemouth when fishing for thornback ray.

Wierd day of weather from raining stair rods to jungle like humidity then ended up with a summers day at 6pm with temperature of plus 25c on the coast at Penlee. Loads of Gar about, no Mackerel, got literally plagued by little wrasse eating our Lug (which was the only bait available btw) then to cap it all hooked a big Bass which stripped about fifty yards of line and buried itself in the Kelp on a rock spur.
Me and my mate then went and had a couple at the rod and line then went back to his place to drink more Beer. Very nice day with very little to show fish wise.

Been suffering from a major lack of water in past few weeks with River too low to fish then for the past week we've had too much water! Hooked and lost Salmon for past 3 days then had a beautiful six pounder this morning. Was in a tiny pool with a fallen tree on one side which it ws determined to get to, fought it out and it ran past me out the bottom of the pool into some rapids, ended up in the water up to my nuts which rapidly dissappeared into my body whilst I managed to pick it up after literally dragging through foaming water. Was a bit shaky after. Plenty of fish showing now missed a take in the pool below and the pool above where I caught the fish today. Should manage to land another one before it shuts down on 14th.

I was going to go and jig for Squid off Elphinstone which is usually the high tides and full moon in October. They should be about next few days I remember sort of 8-9 o'clock high tides were the thing. Use those Jap Prawn jigs sink and draw.

I have a squid jig, never used it! I saw a bloke in Guernsey using one under a float.

Day after I had my last fish hooked up a big double figure Salmon in exactly the same spot, rerun of the first, hooked up ran up the pool to try and get in the fallen tree, turned it and it ran straight out the bottome of the pool, hauled away as hard as I dared to turn it, bang rod snaps right above the handle and fish throws hook in the rapids! Not feckin happy.
Sunday went out for about an hour had one Cock Salmon about five pounds which I took home then caught a beautiful hen fish which was fresh as a daisy which I returned to the river. I've got until the end of the day to have another one but all in all it's been a good season for me, four Salmon and about a dozen Sea Trout.

Nice Ears. Planning a couple dips over the coming weekend on the large tides, could be the last of the year for me so hoping for a nibble or 3.

Pity about the rod btw, hopefully not too expensive.

Sounds a good day and season, apart from the rod.

Feckin rod cost £120! First rod I've bought in years. It's a lovely bit of kit and I bought it predominately for Bass Plugging. It casts beautifully but the fact is they are making carbon rods too feckin thin. It was all a bit of a feck up and I'm majorly to blame, I'd tightened up the drag to turn the fish from a fallen tree and it went sideways at the bottom of the pool and slipped over the lip. There was lots of water running and no way was I going to stop it once it happened although if the drag had slipped it would have at least saved the rod. I'm using 23lb braid with a 20lb fluorocarbon leader which would all break before my old carbon rod would. The circumstances all added up to rod overload but I'm sure that adding another mm of carbon would have solved it. As it broke just above the butt I can spigot it and give it a good whipping and I'll lose about four inches of a ten foot rod. I'll just use the old one in the river.

At least it broke at the base, better to lose it there than at the tip.

Nothing worse than losing it at the tip! Laughing

Foreshore I once broke the tip off a brand new fly rod before I'd even used it, took it outside to try the action and just caught the end on a twig losing the top four inches, rod was never the same felt like it was missing a couple of feet. I did another rod when I was a kid shutting it in the car door.
A mate of mine bought a Pit Bull (silly caant) and it ate his brand new Penn Mag Multiplier. It looked like it had been run over by a bulldozer.

Did anyone else see the massive Tuna jumping clear out the water at Watergate Bay on the weekend? There are loads of them about.

I saw the pictures, must be plenty of Mackerel left to feed them.

Wondering of it were Herring? The Mackerel always used to leave the North coast way before the south coast.
I've just had a thought about last year fishing in Port Issaac bay plugging off the rocks and I saw dozens of mackerel leaping out of the water like flying fish a couple hundred metres off shore, not like when bass hit them they just boil these things were coming out the water for like six feet. At the time I was thinking Dolphin but I didn't see anything break the water so I was thinking Shark but I'm wondering now if that was Tuna feeding?

My oppo fished the Lizard for a week last month, and said he saw Tuna chasing Mackerel then.
