Winter Cod Fishing At Cornelian Bay The Holderness beaches and the River Humber have fished well this year so my trips up on the rock have not been as often as other seasons but with a bit of sea and it being that time of year when the better fish start to show I decided I would have a mooch somewhere around Scarbro. Cornelian was the choice despite daylight colour looked good and there was a nice sea running. Got down onto the fronts for just after low, a lad was fishing the runner into Basin and he'd had a few fish to 4lb on ebb and first of flood so hopes were high. We only managed one chuck of the first spot and no bites before we got washed of....so a move was in order....round into basin. First chuck no bite. Second chuck with cart, squid and yellow tail, I got a few taps then the tip of the K2 lunged over...fish on. I had to scamper down to the lip of Basin and after a good scrap the swell nicely lifted the fish up for me...job done The new Fin Nor Lethal was a pleasure to use as well. 8) http://www.alanhawk.com/reviews/lth10.html We had a scamper about for the rest of the flood but to be honest as the biteless casts mounted my confidence ebbed.......I ve only fished Cornelian once or twice in daylight before and my hopes are never as high as night time. So at High water we scampered out and went for a brew before mark number two. Took the easy option of North Bay (Rawlins) looked nice and fished a few hours of the ebb....I managed just a mop, Martin got a nice fish looked about 6lb but came in like a lump of weed no scrap at all....proper larry lay on. Mart also had another couple of mops and that was it.....not a lot....but My fish went bang on 8lb on the scales when I got it home....best this season in a year of mops a welcome bonus fish. Back to the beaches next.
