Thread: plenty of cod about

    plenty of cod about

    I was talking to mate the other day who was telling me that the fishing was very goot at the moment. I haven't botherd fishing for a long time because of the lack of fish so not wanting to waste my time off work and a great opportunity to get my son off his xbox I gathered some rods and reels sorted some bait and off we went. my lad landed his first flounder and a couple of whiting and I managed a couple of cod not massive but big enough for a feed . so it was fresh cod for dinner today FANTASTIC. talking to some lads on the beach they have been catching plenty of 3 to 4 lb cod for a coupke of weeks . is it the same anywhere else are the numbers better this year.

    Good to hear things are improving down on the beach / over the gunnels!, can't beat a bit of fresh cod/mackerel on the tongue.

    hi tony I haven't fished fanaticly for a number of years so I just went where I used to do well. you will do well at the mouth of the Conwy river if go to the left of the marina its not so brutal on the tackle and don't cast to far. anywhere in the menai straits will fish ok . if you get to Anglesey then you are spoilt for choice . speak to Malcolm at Anglesey bait centre if he doesent know where is fishing well then no one does . one thing you need to do well is peeler crab

    Chrisc I live Silverdale. At present no cod but never is but there is some serious fat flounder to have on low waters. A bit bag load in one hours fishing.had good mullet and few sea trout this year.
    Any one brave enough do do treading for flounders??

    One or two decent ones coming off the beach between sandgate and Dungeness, problem is trying to get through the doggies, there is a rake of them about as well

    using just whole squid for the cod, anything with a worm on is dogfish magnet at the moment down here

    just getting a decent frost here as well

    Best year here for around 12 years , up to a dozen fish per 4 hour trip and people using rod and line from day boats have had up to 60 fish in the local estuary mainly fish to 3lb but fun and tasty. Only downside is they are preoccupied on crab and the bloody doley's are doing the crab traps every tide and selling them on eBay etc for a quid each nearly !!
