    Hi all well as earlier mentioned I managed to get a very good fish the other night fishing north of Whitby,
    It was a mark I had never fished before and my friend Bri Harland knows the area like the back of his hand so with his help he explained to me the stretch we were fishin the entry/exit points of the gully ect ..... First chuck I recived a single massive "knock" then it ran me as I wound down to it lifted my rod it just stayed bent I knew it was a good fish Bri was straight to the waters edge and in all fairness it wasn't the hardest fight I had ever had but it was certainly difficult, when the big lass decided to shake her head I knew about it, she got stuck once and my heart was in my mouth luckily a swell come though and lifted her over the ledge......where Bri was waiting to scoop her up, and anyone who knows Bri knows he is a big kid his little celebration dance with a 20 pund fish was hilarious.
    A single 6/0 rig and bait was peeler, cart, worm
    When I gutted her she had3 edible crabs 4 inch across the back and a fish about a pound. image.jpeg image.png image.png image.jpeg image.jpeg

    A hell of a fish perry just goes to show you never know when it's your turn for the big one the area you were fishing certainly throws them big ones out to hit a cod on the 20 lb mark from the shore is a massive acheivment in itself and there is just a hand full of people who achieved this in these parts and you will be talking about it for a long time to come well done mate .

    I know I don't fish and probably never will fish the same areas as you perry. But seeing that fish has really made my mind up to fish 2 rods when I can. You just never know what swimming about. So my normal cod bait plus a rod out with live bait rig on. Nothing ventured nothing gained

    Ok si .... I've never known anyone fish two rods with better catches than someone with one on upgang .....its to quick of a tidal movement to bait up two rods/and fish it, I might be wrong like but I never seen any of the local lads who know how to fish the beach here use two rods, fish light quick and move from place to place
