Kayak Fishing in the United Kingdom

Where do you fish / launch? I launch all over the UK when I can, but mainly around the coast and freshwater lakes in my own county, as the fishing is pretty good around here.
What kind of fish do you catch or target? Fish vary greatly in this region. Mackeral, Pollack, Black Bream and occasional couches bream, thornback blonde smalleyed and spotted rays, smoothhounds tope, etc..
What kind of lures, jigs or live bait do you use? Fishing methods vary greatly in this region, but we use anything from feathers for mackeral, jellyworms (particularly Berkeley Powerbaits Jellyworms) for pollack, right through to fish and crab baits for bottom fishing. My particular favourite is targeting bass with the Rapala J13.
What kind of kayak do you have? My ride is a choice of either a Malibu X13 with X wing console, or my new love, the 2009 Tarpon 160, which I believe is possibly the best plastic sit-on-top kayak ever made.
