    COD FISHING REPORT JUNE 2009

    Well just arrived home from another enjoyable weeks cod fishing on Scotlands rugged east coast with good pals Martin Jackson and Alan Jackson aka (Big Cliff) Must admit the weather was unusally kind to us and the fishing was pretty hot too.... :yes: :yes: :yes:

    Cant beat summer cod fishing beats getting blown off a rock on a cold January night, we returned the majority of our catch but unfortunately the odd one was deeply hooked so was taken home for tea.. :happy:

    Bait was mainly fresh crab for me but Mart and Alan also caught very well on a mixture of fresh and frozen crab, and cart baits and also Big Cliffs magic crystal Clams... :surprise: :surprise:

    A nice red cod from the kelp..

    [​IMG]

    There was also a good number of fresh run fish aswell.. :yes:

    [​IMG]

    Done a bit of light tackle float fishing and managed cod, coalfish, and pollack.

    Re: SUMMER COD ON THE ROCKS.... (Fishing Report)

    yhe old bones are about worn out harry ----- its a great area, from cliff tops to fishing slabs as big as transit vans , rocky beaches
    to areas where you catch the tide run where big casting can put you in pole position to marks that you only cast 5 yards yes thats 5
    its got the lot i love it i had my trusty 35lb mono no not my main line thats the rotton bottom the main line is 50lb i bet a few are wincing
    now , the fish certainley liked those clams it only goes to show you never know

    I love it when I here Garry's gone fishing as I know we are in for a bit of a treat when we get the report. You clearly all had a wonderful time and the pics illustrate the quality of the fishing up there. Once again, many thanks for telling us of your adventure and posting all those wonderful pictures, I know how time consuming it is uploading them all and posting them up. You guys must have been going up there every summer for a lot of years now ?? you clearly know the ground and have reaped the rewards. Full marks.

    Tell me, were Alan's jokes any better this year ??
