Just reading the thread about "Kelpies" and I have to ask... It's a dark winter night and the sea is dark, rough and "muddy". How do the incoming Cod find food? Do they hunt by scent? Touch? Sight? Sight - to me as a human, looks right off the radar - but I can't work without a torch. Maybe those big Cod eyes are better than I thought? Touch - OK but a bit hit and miss. Perhaps I (as a Cod) just work the features until something feels like food or bolts for cover. Scent - This would have to be my favourite. We know for definite that many freshwater fish will "home in" based on scent then use their other senses to pick out food. So what's the general feeling amongst you sea regulars? While I'm in the mood for questions - Going back a few weeks there was another thread about cascading bites - shoals moving down the coast. Is it possible to hold a shoal over a particular area? You can see where I'm going here. - groundbait (for want of a better expression). Do sea shoals respond to a baited area? I appreciate that it just isn't possible on a lot of marks but can it be done? Can a shoal of whatever be held up at a particular mark using lots of freebies?
