Another weekend on the cod

Despite easterly winds this weekend the cod were still biting even if other fish were a little quiet. Plenty of dogfish of course to keep rod tips twitching, the winning formula seemed to be bigger baits with the 23.5lber falling to a 7 squid cocktail.

23.5lber for Dave
Charlie with a last minute 19lber
10lber for Paulo

First winter cod of the year!!

Winter codding is off to an impressive start!! With a break in the weather Skipper Sam took a few keen anglers out for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon with positive results. Among the masses of doggies angler Dave Lynes managed to pluck out a spotted ray, a bass and the first of the seasons winter cod weighing in at 24lb4oz. Setting the bar ncie and high for the rest of the season!

neap tides recently

Some nice photos from the last neap tide. The last offshore trip of the year had some awesome weather and plenty more congers for Stuart Cross and his lads, as ytou can see from the photo below you couldn't put a bait down without a conger gulping it down. Some nice bull huss off the banks aswell with Dave Clay pulling in a new club record for Salisbury SAC at 14.5lb
