Kayak Fishing Spot Guide – Cambois

This is another fun spot for kayak fishing. There is a concrete ramp that provides easy access to the beach. There are some concrete blocks at the top to prevent boat launches but there is enough of a gap for a kayak. The launch from Cambois is simple at low and mid tide. You do need to be careful at high tide if there is even a slight swell on as the water comes right over the bottom of the concrete ramp and even a 1-2ft wave can cause problems on re-entry.

Once out at sea you have a lot of rough ground. The windmills are a good place to start. Here you have 30-40ft of water with sharp drop offs all around providing good ground for cod and Pollock. I’ve even caught a dogfish here which was a first for me in the North East. Mackerel are also commonly caught here in the summer. On an incoming tide I often head straight for the windmills and drift right down to Blyth pier. This covers a lot of rough ground and normally produces a good cod or two. Friends of mine have had cod over 10lb from this area and it is certainly worth a shot if you have your cod goggles on 
