OK im off on my first holiday in three years, weve managed to wangle one of those sun holidays down near St Ives in Cornwall. Im going to sneak in some fishing kit and a rod but im not sure what sort of fishing is available was going to take my 3lb TC rod for a bit of flattie fishing or a spinning rod for some Mackrel, Bass if there are any. Anyone been fishing that far down and have any advice so I can plan what to take? any help would be appreciated. Very Happy

Thanks Adie very helpful. I did do a google search for the local area but it was just the usual blurb from the fishery owners which tends to be over inflated, however it does give me an idea of what to hide in the car so the missus dont see it lol.

Cornwall is always good for pollock and wrasse off the rocks. Look for somewhere with abit of depth, careful though, we don't want o be down a forum member! For Wrasse, get some limpets or welks at low tide. Fish a float or ledger a heavyish lead paternoster (use a couple of hooks, it;s the sea) fish baits nearish the bottom. If you get to a tackle shop rag or lugs are a killer!
For the pollock try sandeels or small lures. Also look out for mullet and bass, life can be too short though! Watch the spines on the blenny and gobies! Mackrel are hit and miss, if they're there you catch them if they're not you wont. The wrasse fishing is fun though as you don't need any special tackle and you can get you bait for free!
