    Well you did well to get out there today Speirsy. I looked at it and decided it would be uncomfortable to be out in my kayak. Apart from the chop I didnt fancy battling the wind, it seemed to be quite gusty.

      Youre not wrong very choppy but the drogue helped a lot once the tide turned it was wind against tide so rven though it was windy as hell the drift was between 0.4 and 0.9 but im not gonna lie it was uncomfortable but the amount of fish ia was gettung i just had to stay out great sport

        There's something addictive about that tug on the rod tip, just as you think it's time to quit and go home! Well done, it sounds like a great day's fishing.
