Cod Fishing On The Whitby Charter Boat Sea Trek Now Known As Shy Torque

This short cod fishing video was shot in the Whitby Angling Festival onboard Stu Johnston’s Charter boat Sea Trek, a boat made famous when Noel Cook landed the British record cod from Whitby many years ago.

The boat has since changed hands and names and is owned by Whitby skipper Richard Ward and sails under the name of Shy Torque.

The video itself shows a group of Anglers targeting cod from the many wrecks and reefs on the inshore grounds at Whitby.

The quality of the catches shows just how good the cod fishing can be in this area of the north sea.
