    well done again si,, the late shift was poor i ended up with six mops to 3lb, i lost a pig, which was the only good fish all night, it looked around 10lb ish, my snood went on the lift, i tried to lift it myself in my little moment of stupidity, i should have got "buff" (a lad from this site who was on there by then) to go down for it :hurt:, i was sick and was gonna do one when the snow came heavy for a time, right on the start of the ebb, so i thought i might aswell fish on as opposed to trying to get home, glad i did really as there was a little flurry of codling while it was snowing 3 size and two just under, wich added to my earlier three.

    43 down 7 to go :cheesy:

    Nipped out for a couple of hours this evening to try get the last fish I needed to get myself to 50. The first few casts were fruitless but then there was a little flurry with 3 fish coming out in about a 20 minute period. Two 5 pounders and a mop takes my total to 52. Heres a list of where the fish came from :

    1 (Robin hoods bay)
    2 (Saltwick)
    2 (Robin Hoods Bay)
    3 (Bempton)
    2 (Boggle Hole)
    6 (Saltwick)
    6 (Runswick)
    2 (Runswick)
    2 (Goldsborough)
    1 (Boulby)
    1 (Saltwick)
    1 (Hawsker)
    6 (West Pier)
    2 (Robin Hoods Bay)
    4 (Runswick)
    3 (Saltwick)
    3 (Hawsker)
    1 (Crete Block)
    1 (East Pier)
    3 (Kettleness)

    I did put a bit more time in on a couple of occasions and some were in the day matches that are up to 6 hours Harry, but my average sessions are around 3-4 hours. I pick the peak time for a mark and fish it through then go home. I just havent got the heart for mammoth sessions anymore but once over I would average about 10 hours. My fishing time got less and catch rate grew.

    Re: The 50 Codling Challenge ?? Catch 50 cod by New Year

    Not sure really baza. There was a fair few fish in the 3-6 pound bracket, nothing bigger I dont think which is sad really. I never weighed many of them and I also returned quite a few I didnt want.

    Looking at the different venues you fished Glenn I would safely say you know the big majority pretty well. The hours and hours you must have put in over the years eventually pays big dividends. Time spent fishing duff conditions/tides etc is time saved in the long run and the only true way of learning the marks and ultimately catching fish.

    Thats right Ray Ive fished each one of those marks a thousand times before and had many blanks on poor nights. This Is why I always say to people a blank is as good as catching and adds to your learning curve because it helps you learn the times you should give one mark a miss in favour of another. Admittedly its not all my own Knowledge and Ive pinched a bit along the way, but Ive learned a fair bit myself.

    I dont really fear disclosing marks becuase knowing them and catching fish from them are 2 different things, although there is the odd one I would never give out precisely as I know its the one place I can be on my own. One thing that stands out quite a bit for me is just how many times this year Ive been on my own at a mark or sharing it with maybe 1 or 2 others. Maybe the marks arent as over populated as people say they are ??
