It’s depressing.. the weather is going from bad to worse. The weather forecast just isn’t worth reading past the forthcoming 24 hours. This weekend was looking fishable, now it’s forecast a blowout. Fear not, early next week is looking good, well that was yesterday, today it’s all change.
The original plan was to fish the Manacles this weekend with a friend, though that’s now a write off so I’ll no doubt be driving back to Hampshire again this weekend. I really can’t put into words how terribly frustrating this whole experience is. I’m still hoping that the last week will allow a fishing window or two, day or night, I’m not at all fussy.
A couple of hours ago I wandered down to Poldhu Cover, then over to Mullion Harbour before stopping by Church Cove. I do enjoy watching a stormy sea which cheered me up in a bizarre sort of a way. The waves were between 6-8’, going over for a few hundred yards, a cauldron of boiling water as far as the eye could see.. sobering stuff. Certainly not something you’d want to find yourself paddling in !
Below is Mullion Harbour, the photo doesn’t do the swell justice. Though if you look to the other side of the wall you can make out the inner water level.
Lastly was Church Cove, the light was fading fast hence the poor photo quality.
I have strong doubts as to whether conditions will improve during the next week or so, but as ever I’m living in hope !
