I keep swearing that I'll give up Cod fishing. Not because I'm bored but because I never catch the things. It's hard to keep it up when you are out and about at 3am and haven't had a touch. It's odd because a few years ago I set out to get a decent size Eel and that took a long time to happen. It wasn't disheartening though like my Cod fishing. There was always the planning, fishing nice places and the Carp, Tench and Bream that snaffled my bait instead of Eels. Eventually I hit the jackpot and got a dozen Eels one night from 21/2 to 5lb that made it all worthwhile. Couldn't stop catching them after that. Don't know what it is with the Cod. I think I'm fishing the right sort of places so I'm left with wrong conditions or crappy bait, probably both. Anyway I've got a couple of weeks in RHB coming up soon so I'll see if that changes anything. If it doesn't then there may well be some fishing gear floating down the coast. I'm pretty sure I'm that close to packing it in and getting back to Barbel and such.
