Is this the year for a record breaking bass :- More here.
For nearly all serious sea anglers, the number one species to catch has to be the bass.
St Ives is a fantastic place to catch that unforgetable first bass. From May until October I fish with the rods using freelined live sandeel (just a small hook and the bait, no weight)and I haven't had a 'blank' trip for 2 years now! I taught my girlfriend how to 'bass' and she loves it, below is a picture of her with a fantastic 4 pounder caught from the 'Stones' near Godrevy Lighthouse.
