    Winter Cod Fishing At Kettleness.

    Last Friday after dropping the youngest off at school i decided i would take advantage of the free time as the sea was well away. I decided to head off to Kettleness where i was greeted by quite a big sea, which looked a little too heavy from the top of the cliffs.
    WP_20150904_003.jpg As i got to the bottom of the rope it didn't seem too bad, just some weed in the back which as it happens stayed there. WP_20150904_001.jpg I started fishing at 1015, with tide ebbing some 2 hours by now. 8 casts 8 fish 4 of which where returned as they where only lip hooked. as the tide ebbed back further the bites became less prolific. A couple of casts resulted in no return until about 2 hours before low water. 2 casts 2 more fish. A quick check of the watch it was 1320, time to head off back for the school run. All in all a result for a 3 hour session in daylight. Bait was fresh crab.

    10 codlings in 3 hours, 4 of which where returned. biggest was 5lb 9 oz.
    I returned on the Sunday and managed another 3 for 6lb odd to win the St Mary's match.
    I hope this will inspire you all to go out and catch a few.
    Thanks for reading cheers Col.

    The rope access is good at the moment, might need a little work on the footholds but otherwise okay, as usual just take your time on the decent.
    No problem Glenn, will post when time allows.

    Didn't need darkness Paul, if the conditions are right you can get plenty in the daylight as you know.
    Must arrange a day out with you as well, getting withdrawal symptoms.
    Cheers Col.
