    All depends what type of spring we get glen if its warm and sunny the bulk of fish move into deeper water but if its cold spring as you say it can go into late april or even into may i had my biggist cod down boulby in may 14lb plus many more that day and they were all fresh run fish only difference they were all on fresh crabs but as i say if its fine spring the winter fishing will go off and the sprat shoals start to turn up in late april .

    Ive just looked back in my "fishihing diary" and the last couple of yrs have been very good just out of casting range in good tide on land rock for jigging/shadding in april and may. Previous yrs however show v,poor fishing inside until the summer fish arrive propper in june.
    All this back up what Paul was saying it will depend on the conditions/water temp.
    Its been one hell of a mild winter this time so far.

    Interesting read this topic.

    What conditions do you guys look for when targeting cod in Spring?

    Deep water?
    Surf?
    Tidal Venues?
    Kelp?
    ....... etc

    Want to keep meself fishing right until August/Sept when hopefully a plentifully amount of Bass grace our shores!
    Cheers

    Every year is different this winter and well into the spring the cod fishing might fish well but if you take most spots which are fishing well now doing the same in may that probably wont happen but you change venues and bait going to be interesting though just how well it fishes places like robinhoods bay in some spots have allready gone off which scaures can do into febuary whitby scaure does exactly the same the fish tend to move more towards sand now or more into the deep water marks but as usuall with fishing there anit any rules.

    Had a Fantatsic bag out of Crete Block in Late April early may. Think it was about 18 codlings, all on Fresh Crab. It was a bank holiday Monday so could have been Easter or May day. Thats was season 97 / 98 when there was millions of mops about.

    Can't beat fresh crab on brigg/bempton/flamborough in late spring early summer as the crab start to peel, fishing in tide can be awesome. My favourer months are May/June/September/October

    Thats about right Quint. You should be able to catch a COD In Yorkshire, every month of the year. Baits and Marks will vary, amount of fish will vary, but it is always possible to find a cod somewhere.
