Got a week in salcombe coming up soon and will hopefully be out hunting bass.

Is the estuary mouth area a bass nursery and no fishing allowed? came across an old post on here mentioning it.

anyone got any recommendations of goodshore diving bass spots? I’m guessing the little nooks and coves in the coastline (especially anything protected from the west) will be good?

Tried looking for accommodation in Devon at the weekend. Almost all have no availability this month (found 2 in Plymouth itself, we usually go out in the sticks) and most are booked for the rest of the year and well into next year. Barring further lockdowns, UK holiday accommodation could be in for a bumper couple of years.

Thanks Stuart! I will take look at that in the future. We've yet to explore around Plymouth properly - did visit the awesome aquarium though -and I recently discovered that an old climbing pal lives there now.

I hadn't thought of AirBandB (duh!), thanks for that. I hope you're not offended but we found another place in the sticks closer to where we have stayed in the past (South Hams though) and a bit nearer the coast than we usually manage. It was the only slot this month in the area we were most interested in.

All being well, we're going to Devon!

Kernow.
A quick boat dive yesterday produced a couple of nice fish.
Both taken about 10m down on the side of a reef wall.

Kernow.
He was a little fatty. Weighed in at 1.95kg.
Not massive, but I got a couple of decent fillets off it.

Where are you staying in Devon MrX? The viz is pretty good down here at the moment, 6-7m inshore away from the river mouths.

Sounds good :) but things may change before we get down there (I've PM'd you details using the Forum's conversation feature). We're staying closer to the east coast this time - there was not much choice but happy enough with location. We plan to visit the west side too, if the weather is calm, to spear, and if weather rough, to boogie board. We'll try to avoid crowds though.

I plan to pack books and walking boots too, in case it buckets down all week! It's only happened to us once in August thankfully.

Does anyone know venerable forum member @johndory Hunter ? Wondered if he still spears in this area. Looks like he dropped off the forum.
