In this week adventure we decided to venture out to sea . The sea temperature in Scotland vary slightly between 7 C in winter to a paltry 14 C in summer . January is still not the coldest month and the fish are still biting .

The weather in Scotland is certainly unpredictable and the forecast always unreliable but we certainly go . The wind today is strong , uneasy chop on the water but we have hopes . We paddle towards the wall in the distance , my cap flew of my head , I circle back and pick up the wet head gear , just .

We have no over options but to shelter behind the wall , drifting and paddling from time to time . Fishing in those condition is certainly not easy . I hook a fish , presumably a pollock and lost it straight away , and then got snapped by the sound of a wrasse .

Josh shouted fish on , his rod doing a 180 I paddle close in . We sounded like japanese testing a flimsy Lrf rod . That fish was netted in style .

I hooked a bigger fish after many cast , and lost it to the kelp . Still fishless but I eventually nailed a smaller one , not a keeper but still a fish .

We were all having a quiet day tucked behind the wall and eventually had to dash back to shore . The wind picked up gradually and  we had to make sure we stayed upright on our kayaks . I lost my cap once more to the wind and retrieved it . We all caught fish , got sea sprayed and truly enjoyed the firth of Clyde .
