Safe Marks for Young Kiddies - Cornwall

Post by Cougar »

Hi All,

Please could anyone recommend any marks on the North or South Coast (Cornwall), between St. Ives - St. Agnes (north) and Lizard - Mousehole (South), for day fishing (obviously tide times considered) this time of year.

I'm looking for any locations that would be young kiddies safe as my 2 lads (4 & 5) have expressed an interest.

I eagerly await a response.

Kind Regards, Cougar

B-)

Tend to agree that piers and some breakwaters would be a good idea.
Found this site some time ago:

May have something on it.

One place I visited but never fished was I think Trevone (N coast).
I remember it as if you park in the car park then walk down, south west, the coast path after 1/2 mile there is an large expanse of "flat" rock which at low tide is dry and at high tide is covered.

Recall there being a couple of seats along there. If you visit at low tide watch the kids as there is a large tide pool cut into the rock somewhere, best if they didn't fall in.

Would have to be fished at high tide, no water otherwise :-O , and calm (kids).
Rocks would I suspect chew up tackle and no idea what you may get.

Reason I recall it is because of the footpath, seats and the large expanse of rock, idea was sit down, throw out a float rig and see what bites, or use a spinning rod with lures.
