ZEN 2 @ Padstow – Plymouth – St Ives – Falmouth – Penzance
Today its hard for me to contain my excitement. I small sticker and a certificate arrived with the mornings post. This is something I have been working towards for 18 months. Its been really tough going at times and the expense involved has been staggering. Sometimes you go so far down the road you just have to keep going. You have invested so much that you can not turn back .
Well I’ve done it !! Zen2 is the first boat of its kind to achieve MCA CAT 4 Status. I have also spent a great deal of time and money upgrading my charter skippers ticket to take my Bass fishing clients to the places that fill me with awe . We have 200 miles or so of coastline in Cornwall . My previous operational area was tiny in comparison . MY OFFICE HAS JUST INCREASED IN SIZE BY 200 % I Can now take my punters to all those hard-core locations that I have been fishing alone or with my mates
2012 was a tough year for me Bass fishing in Cornwall. You name it we had it, screwed up water temperatures, Wind , rain, rain,rain. I remember sitting on my boat with clients in Falmouth Bay and the water was the colour of milky coffee. (We did actually catch a Bass that day .)I took a call from a mate of mine who had landed 30 Bass fishing the gin clear waters on the North coast. It was very depressing to say the least. Most charter boats are stuck to one Port ,so if the wind takes a turn for the worst they are stuck. Zen2 can now launch from multiple ports . I know plenty of places with good fishing where we can tuck in close to shore and stay safe. SE winds are a nightmare on the South coast and have become my worst enemy in Falmouth Bay, so now when it blows from the South East we will be launching at StIves or Padstow.
This is a massive step for me. So where do you want to go Bass fishing in Cornwall in 2013 ? We now have 200 Miles of coastline and endless possibilities !
