    decided to try my luck yesterday, me and 2 mates went to marske beach at 10 am and fished in front of sewer pipe until 2pm .not a sniff , nowt ,not even a knock. decided to go to whitby west peir. Fished from 2.30pm until 8pm between us we caught 3 rocking, 1 whiting and 1 codling about one and a half pound, put it back cos it is an endangered species in this area. might have another try tomorrow. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    worst cod season ever rubbish. you just have to go find the fish, they are only on whitby west on a n /nw big sea otherwise its a waste of time. going to the wrong venue on the wrong conditions can soon put you off have a look at the marks page on here and get some pointers of when and where to fish and your catches will get a lot better

    Bit of a harsh answer but true non the less.It ain't the worst cod season ever,not by a long way but it has been tough and at times frustrating.But read the reports and you will see that there are still fish getting caught,just not where you are targetting.Need to travel a bit further afield and try a few new marks when conditions suit best if you want to start catching mate,and this applies to me also.Your not alone :no: :sad:

    It has been said loads of times , it started good but within 8 weeks it went belly up and generally has been like that for the last 12 weeks , unless people have been prepared to travel , We have just had some big tides and as a rule of thumb not set in concrete of course , lots of marks fish alot better on the EBB , I know marks that do fish on the flood, but the EBB is usually better , very often on
    slack tides its the other way round , Im sure that generally if you follow this your results will improve as long as you do all the other things that matter

    Sorry bud but i go along with Ben on this one, every time we had a stir up early season Sept/Oct/Nov there were good catches coming from various different venues, you only have to look at the difference between this years '50 codling challenge' and last years, a massive difference. Where it went pear shaped was when we were hit by the extreme temperatures and snow melt in late November and throughout December, the drop in temperature pushed the fish out into deeper water. Since the turn of the year we haven't had a decent NW sea ( 1 that lasts a few days) to bring the fish back in, problem is now we are getting to the very backend of the season.

    Hi Barry mac,
    The area you were fishing can produce on smaller tides.The two "holes" that you were fishing into emptied too fast .These depressions come & go (due to a shallow beach) you need to peruse the area after a storm etc at low water to see where the sand has moved.If you had a pair of waders/chesties you could have crossed the pools & fished from the sand bank,taking care not to be caught out ,as the tide will flood behind you.This happened to me once ,due to the all fatal last cast when you are among the fish.As i tried to cross back to the shore side,the flood of the tide was to strong to wade through,fortunately the sand bank ran down towards the "Horse Path" & after a worrying walk the flow eased off further down the beach & i could cross to safety.Part of the process of learning is being able to read the area you fish,when,what bait etc etc.Try just to the left of the slipway at high tide & you may have better luck.

    LAwseys is a very good angler and has been very consistent this year. The fishing was exceptional for the period upto Christmas. If you couldnt catch cod in the time period then its time to start thinking of lessons or another hobbie

    people are only trying to be helpfull to each other on here ive also been fishing for years but little tips always help. if you think you no all there is to no about cod fishing your wrong! and your catch rates will be a lot lower than someone who is willing to learn new ideas tricks etc

    Yes Lobbers needs a few tips, especially in how to put nappies on. When you see him next tell him to give me a ring as Ive heard nothing from him since their lass dropped.
