Headed for the cliffs at Sandsend tonight along with Mike, Dan, Damo, and Rich aka deadlyfish. We started in daylight and the billets were at us fast, then as dusk fell the real fish came out to play. I got a couple of cod on the last of the flood tide, both laid on, the first being a nice fish of around 3 pounds. It then went quiet so we made a bit of a move for the ebb tide. Dan was just commenting how you never see any good billets at Sandsend, then promptly caught one going close to 3lb. As the ebb got away I started to get a good few codlings, managing 6 in 6 casts at one point, with the biggest looking close to 5lb. The bites were almost constant for myself and Mike, but for some reason the other lads struggled a little. In the end, I had 11 codling, Mike had 5, rich had 1, Dan and Damo filled up with Billets. All the fish were happy to take large mackerel flappers fished at close range. Not a bad start to the new season and Im sure there will be more and bigger to come yet.
