    gleadall474 i want to live by the sea

    Well the night started at sandsend carpark i got there about 15:30 and started fishing about 16:00. The weed was bad from the start and just got worse to the point where when I did hook in to a fish I could not get it through the weed that had built up just below me. And As soon as the fish was in weed it was not coming out and I was dragged about 15ft along the carpark before the line give way and the fish and rig was gone.
    At that point it was time for a move. after talking to a couple of lads that were down there I decided to move down to whitby east pier. A place I'd never fished as I have always fished the west pier. When I got there about 18:00ish there was no one there but there looked to be a few on the west pier. It looked very fishy so set up and decided to go for a big squid and cart bait I was fishing for about an hour in which I had a few bites that I could not conect with then the line went slack and as quick as it went slack the rod slammed over. I Grabbed the rod and connected in to a fish that didn't feel that big but as I got the fish closer I started to feel this was a good one and even dared to believe I my have caught my first shore double. soon as it came to the surface and the light from my head torch hit it I knew it was my first double then I realised that it was not mine untill it was up that wall. There was no one with me so after a couple of attempts I got hold of the line. slowly bit by bit up she came the second the fish was up I started jumping around shouting yes yes yes! Once I calmed down I weighed the fish which came out at about 11lb.
    Once I got back home to Huddersfield I weighed it properly and confirmed I had cought my first double figure cod weighing 11lb 5oz
    Hope you all like my report and I bet it was busy on there last night.

    Thanks for reading

    I have got cuts all over my hands from the line cutting in to them. The worse bit was trying to get the rod down and getting hold of the line I think my heart stopped every time a wave hit the fish.

    Fantactic mate, made up for you. It was only last year that i had my first shore cod got three off the wesy one night. I hope to get a double at some point this season and like u i will be doin a jig... big well done again my friend and hope u get more. The best i had was 5 pound and am intresred to read about the bite u got.

    Mate - that is an awesome report.

    Actually it's a real inspiration for everyone like me who travels a long way for their sea fishing as it makes it even more of an achievement when you don't live on the coast.

    Make sure it gets entered into the biggest shore fish of the month competition sponsored by whitby angling supplies.

    We'll chuffed for you mate.

    I was fishing by the second wall in the middle of the pier. having not fished there before i was a bit in the dark as to where to try but in the dark i could see a strip of water that looked darker so i aimed for that hoping there was a hole or gully there i would say i was only casting about 60-70ft but in the dark it was hard to say. hope that helps

    Well done Dave I know that when you get a nice fish it makes the journey home a lot easier had a few doubles myself and being land locked does make it special. I am from Hudds as well yet to have a run out this season, your report has got the juices going.

    Am I the only one to think it a little poor form not to wear a tie with one's shirt whilst fishing?
    Standards are proper plummeting!

    Word of warning. Could have been worse, he could have spooled up with braid. If you do (spool up braid) then get some cheap gardening gloves from 'Wilko' and stash them in your bag. You really don't want to be hauling 11lb of Cod up a wall with braid and bare hands ::)

    Very nice fish BTW. Don't envy you handling it on your own though ;)

    (OT. So that's 3 of us from Hudds - few more and we can change the name of the site)
