    Reading Glenn's shore double post makes me green with envy, and I am feeling extremely left out - so here's a post for those that feel left out!

    I have been shore fishing for 47 years and never got close. OK most of my fishing has been on the shallow west coast beaches, but to date my best is a measly 4.5lb, and that was about 30 years ago. No brushes with monsters to report either.

    I can't seem to top 10lb even off the boats- had a few close and ling above that figure.
    Its a bit sobering when I've caught bigger trout and salmon than I have cod!
    Still- I am more than happy with a steady stream of 3-8lb fish.

    Best cod from the shore.....6lbs 4oz... I think thats why I don't do much shore fishing these days. I'm basically crap at it. Had more blanks than good sessions.
    I'll stick to boat fishing... :cry:

    Never caught one in 50 years fishing. The only one have seen in all that time is pictures online or in fishing magazines. Do they really exist? lol.

    As long as you go to the right places and do the right things its only ever a cast away , you arent doing anything different then bang its on , to a large extent
    you are in the lap of the gods , the first one I got was in cowbar gulley , I cast the reel blew up the bait dropped about 15 yards out , then bang a 14 lb took the
    bait , good luck ? destiny ?

    Im in this group too had a 10lb Pollock from the boat and several double ling from the boat but still my best cod from boat is 9lb 8oz and from the shore only half of that.

    lost a fish last year on the shore and I am positive it would of been a double from the size of its tail but it wasn't meant to be.

    I am going back to the same mark this winter to see if i can finally manage to land one.
