So. After 2 near blanks on my local hound mark, a trip over the water to the isle of sheppey was in order. Bartons Point for anyone wanting an easy to fish, scenic venue .
Which was annoying as the night i went, the fish made a b line from this beach to the one id left to find them !. Oh well haha.
We also thought we would make a mini camping trip of it with the kids, so loaded up the kayak , new teepee tent and the fishing gear into the car , the whole time with that nagging impeding feeling that a blank was coming .
The fishing on the first evening was awfully slow, not a single rattle during the flood, and the weed came in abundance on the ebb, so called that an early night .
Alot of fun was had with the kids really enjoying their first kayak expedition and they adored the tent which i knew they would
The next morning, was again, ridiculous heat , and ALOT of jetski and kayak action.
I somehow managed an individual smoothhound out in the heat of the day , which to be honest i thought by the way it was playing , was a baby stingray, just had a strange feeling bringing it in, that was a shame, but target species regardless !
So, all in all , a good tester trip to see if the boys liked the outdoors overnight.
Also it was lovely to just open the tent in the morning, prep a crab bait and cast out, i will definitely be back for another camping trip.
And this time, i wont drop the cups of tea ive just spent 45 mins sourcing from an open shop at 5 in the morning 😡
Hopefully the bext write up will involve more pictures of fish, but all we can do is hope .
Tight lines, Dominic and Kai
