    both caught on 3/0 pulley pennel rig, single yellowtail tipped with squid, fished at range

    still very patchy by all accounts Matty but another few weeks it should start fishing better :yes:

    usually 2nd week in jan it starts fishing more consistently, or at least it has the last 3 years or so and it seems to following the same pattern this year so far

    Is there a particular reason why the Cod move onto sand later in the season?

    Seem to remember the suggestion that, come the frosts, Crabs (and other rock dwelling life) move back into deep water and so sand life was what the Cod turn to. Made sense - other opinions welcome though.

    Lobbers phwwore i love gwen stefani me like

    70 fish so far,
    went on whitby west early evening, followed my mate on and was given the end spot, shammy , woody, jamsy, and his bud allready at it, fishing the soft, with odd whitey and coley, i slapped one out infront of them all and got a four pounder first cast, , but i did'nt like the look of it and tried further down the pier , my mate was'nt happy, getting soaked from the off, (it was horendous), so we decidided to bugger off to scabby, to try find some shelter, but no good :no:
    dont know how shammy and woody ended up, my guess is pants but i might be wrong.

    need a few bag up sesh's, aint gonna happen ,the fish have thinned right out. fished perfect conditions on salty pier last night and had whitings :death:

    Fished my club xmas match today. I opted for goldsborough. There was a lot of weed but I managed 2 for just over 7lb. Puts me on 43. Don't think I will get the opportunity to increase my tally before new year so it looks like I'll fall short again but its still my best attempt at the challenge yet

    had a long day to day but was nice to be out. I managed two mops in daylight but could only catch rockling after dark.

    On the plus side my dad managed a 15lber about an hour before low this evening. Thats his 2nd double since october and it was only last weekend I had my double! will post a pic later.

    Anyway, my 2 mops puts me on 35.

    Should have had at least the 7 fish I needed to get my 50 last night but for some reason I was losing fish and missing bites. Ended up with 2 for 8lb . 45 down, 5 to go.

    You have done well Matty well done. I set of to go to Runswick last night but would of only had an hour before low so turned round and came back home.

    3 for me last night, that's me done this year, 42. Should have had a much better bag as I experienced similar problems to Matty, I lost a fish on WW plus 3 others at runswick as well as missing several very good cod bites. Really enjoyed this season though, will go down as the best ever for quality for me plus I've learned several new marks.......

    yeah i'll have settle for 73(i was born 73), so not a bad number, i went on salty pier for the cloughton, it looked perfect for a fish or two, but just whitey and dabs, i should have been on cowbar jetty i think, mind you , i might get 27 codling on sunday in the ship :nerd:

    one thing i will say, i hope we keep getting seas, because the last few years have been tihs, after new year, and theres a tihs load of good fish about. if we keep a good run of seas there will be some big fish to be had from the shore in the next few month :yes:

    tight lines and all the best lads :yes:
