Who am I?

A few words about me:

I’m James Dixon. I love spending time at the coast and on the water and in particular, kayak fishing. I started kayak fishing in the North East in 2011 and am now well and truly hooked!

12lb Cod caught at Blyth

25lb Tope from the Mull

Large Bull Huss – Mull

Perfect conditions

Facts about me:

  • I am based in Whitley Bay
  • I kayak and fish throughout all seasons, mainly in the North East around Tynemouth, Whitley Bay, Blyth and Newbiggin.
  • I started out on a 9ft Malibu Mini-X – Stable but very slow!
  • I now paddle a Stealth Pro-fisha 475 and Ocean Kayak Scupper Pro and love both
  • My favourite fishing holiday destination is the west coast of Scotland
  • My favourite style of fishing is lure fishing with weedless soft plastics hunting powerful pollock. I cannot get enough of this!
  • I’m a passionate surfer
  • I also love to hit the waves with my SUP

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to kayak fish and he will paddle around in a yak pretending to fish all day.

  1. Really like your blog. Looking forward to more reports and maybe meeting you around the North East coastline. I’ve just started getting into kayak fishing.

  2. Nice blog, as I’m waiting for my profisha to arrive I’m spending time reading around you lucky ones who already get out to fish in theirs.
    Lovely area to fish the northeast, hoping to get up to that area this your and nick some of your fish.

    • You will love your profisha Ben. It is a great fishing platform. Fire away with any questions when you get yours if you want some information on how I rigged mine up. Cheers, James

  4. Hi James, I was wondering if you had any advice for somebody starting out Kayak fishing in our area, I’ve ordered my kayak and expecting it in a couple of weeks, ideally how much to spend on a dry suit and which boots/gloves/paddles etc???
    cheers Andy

    • Hi Andy,
      Thanks for the comment. I’ve been asked this a few times so decide to write up a post on it which can be found: here. Hope it helps and feel free to ask if you have any other questions.
