    Managed to get to sea yesterday a very windy morning we dropped the ankhor till the wind eased which wasn't till lunchtime.

    The fishing on the Uptiding grounds is still throwing cod out on worm and squid but my intensions was hit a couple of wrecks as soon as the wind eased it got dinner then the wind started to drop up with the ankhor and full speed steaming out to sea first drop over the wreck 3 rods straight in on the shad the other lads were on bait and took nothing .

    Here is the lads who had shads on first drift over the wreck

    Full report later .

    The weather at the moment is a swine. Strong winds are keeping the charter fleet tied up, but on Monday there was a window in the weather of only really a few hours .

    I told the lads the score and they were right up for it, the team onboard have fishied with me for many years. Brian Cunningham and his mates.

    These lads just love fishing with shads, but i told them it would be around lunchtime before the conditions would ease and the wind drop off .

    We dropped the ankhor till around lunchtime then the wind did just as it said it would and eased away we had taken around 20-25 codling uptiding not bad for may and one or two around the 5lb mark but as isaid i promished the lads some shadding and that is just what they got.

    I had one wreck in mind which I know has been fishing well some of lads stayed on full squid and 3 of them rigged up on shad the water was little green which is not the best when the tide is running hard.

    The algie is around at the moment but it was starting to slow first go over the wreck the lads on the shads there rods went straight over cheers alound round the boat i knew we were in few hours good fishing next go over the wreck everybody on shad and next time round all the rods were over every body into fish the lads were loving it .

    At the end of the day the lads finished with around 70 - 80 codlings so not bad all very happy and a hell of a lot more to come if i had got a full day at it we could have had something a lot lot better but the lads were still well happy they know whats coming here at whitby the signs are all there its going to be a big summer here on the cod .

    The lads with just a few of there fish happy boys.


    Cheers paul
