    Had a long day yesterday a few hours on drive followed by LW down Holbeck. The drive wasn't very kind with only 3 mops, Holbeck was much kinder, managed 7 more including a few better fish in the 3.5-4lb range. Went for the Lobbers pick which was comical as I'd left my rod on the rest some 50yards up he scaur, a rogue wave came from nowhere just after I took the pic spreading the fish far and wide. Took me about 5 mins to get them together, better was still to happen as I fetched in the last cast to find another mop hanging on.

    50 up!

    Well I wasn't planning on fishing tonight. Having fished the last 3 in a row I was a bit fished out but only needing 1 to complete the challenge I just had to have a go with a nice dying long range swell.

    Got to the mark and within 15 minutes number 50 was on the deck. Only a mop but I was chuffed to bits. 4 more mops followed and I was thinking of heading home when bowesy and jape suggested a move. Ok then I'll have one chuck off there with you lads.

    I was beginning to think I'd never get a half decent fish this year when the rod slammed round and after a spirited fight my best of the season was landed. Weighed in at 6lb 2oz. Hopefully there's bigger to come

    Tonight's total: 6
    Tonight's biggest: 6lb 2oz

    Here is how October Finished.

    [​IMG]

    Quite simple. The challenge is to catch fifty cod from the shore between 1st October and the end of December. No size limits just remember to return all undersized fish. Report your catch here with as many pictures as possible. Please make life easy for me by stating at the start of your post How many fish you caught and if you have any big fish to register for heaviest of the month. Best of luck to you all.

    Nice one Matty! Been watching your progress with interest, well done.

    You're worried about not getting anything decent, Ive not had any over on this side yet, although the boat I sometimes crew on had a few 2 /3 lb'ers out of the Mersey last week so they might show from the shore soon.

    Cheers Ian
