    A winter cod fishing question for shore anglers. The Conditions Are :

    1. Its A Small (Neap) Flooding Tide.
    2. Your starting 2 hours after low tide and are to fish until 1 Hour after high tide.
    3. The Swell Direction Is South Easterly.
    4. The wind has died off.
    5. The Swell Is Massive. Huge Long Distance Swells. 10 to 15ft waves.

    What Mark / Marks Would you choose ??

    Great post topics, Glen.
    Makes one think and learn. Good for novice and intermediate alike.

    Some of the suggestions have made me rethink things, in a good way. For instance, I don't really fish north of Cloughton, but if I did I would have probably headed Runswick over Kettleness. Would never have considered Kettleness before this.

    Cloughton my first choice too.

    Scarborough Sea Life Centre?

    I always remember what you once told me Glenn.. "when its very rough, find shelter, when its calm, find the white water"

    So in those conditions the two places i would consider would be.. Runswick right - from claymoor beck to little run, and kettleness, main gulley or beach on flood

    That will allways serve you well that info Matty. Fishing into it when its massive is impossible. Ive done the whole Sandsend cliffs thing and apart from last 2 hours of ebb tide its a no go. Even Robin Hoods Bay can stop producing when its surging, except for the very bottom of the tide.
