    Sandgate in Kent seems to be knocking out some huge cod for local anglers Dan and Dave at the moment.

    Just this week they have caught fish to just over 20 lb and then one just nudging 30lb, no trick baits required down there.... all caught on cuttle fish.

    Cheers Ken and a big thankyou to the lads for letting us have the pictures. Cuttlefish of all things, who would believe that. Really are cracking fish those, so a big well done to the lads in question.

    Cuttlefish of all things

    Well known prime cod bait , mainly down south, bristol channel areas,

    has anyone used it to effect up here?

    Excellent pics, well done to all concerned.

    Goes to show that some prime fish are on the way back,

    the new Norway?

    regarding hens teeth, Port is due to one, saltwick etc big fish venues are more than due one or two this year.

    enjoy them,

    I know this kayak rod and line fishing is very damaging to the fish stocks might have to sell up and buy a trawler :tease:

    Great catch well done

    My dad is from kent and fish down there as much as we can. Cuttle is one of the top baits besides lug from places like dungeness. Its one of the only things that is tough enough to get through the whiting!

    As you can see, the ink etc can be a good scent trail.

    Thats quite interesting, would like to fish cuttle side by side with say squid and see what the outcome is..

    These really are top drawer catches within the kayak angling world, nice of the lads to let me reproduce the photos.

    Great to see my pics on here, on the hooks I had two cuttle with the top one a whole squid elasticated to it and the bottom cuttle I'd shoved a few lug inside for good measure, happy days :embarrass:

    They are some awesome fish, absolutely huge.

    I used to use cuttlefish a lot but never had that good of a result on it, used it loads, shore fishing.
