Well the cod are starting to make a show locally, not in any real numbers and not in my yak!. I've taken to the water twice in the last week putting out some big squid baits in the hope of hooking into a decent cod, but alas nothing to report on that front.
It was another evening launch which saw me fishing til almost midnight. Plenty of action was provided by dogfish, pouting and whiting. The pouting were a good size though the whiting were few in number and small compared to what I'd caught the previous week, no keepers.
It was a deep water mark with the big springs producing a strong tidal flow. Heavy weights were needed to hold bottom which results in the smaller fish providing little sport.
The temperature is dropping now, time for an extra layer under the drysuit.
