    The competition will run from the Sun 2nd nov- Sat 17 th nov inclusive 2013 .

    With a top prize of £1000 for the angler with the heaviest cod caught over the 2 weeks , this competition should once again be a major success.

    Three boats are in the competition : Sea Otter 2, Mistress, and Avante . All these boats have sponsored the event and deserve your support.

    Get booked on early lads and lasses as with only 3 boats entered places will go like hot cakes as this uptiding festival is set to be a cracker and don't worry like i did about buying a specialist uptiding rod and reel as you can get away with your normal boat gear as you only alter your rigs to a grip lead and long flowing trace so happy days :happy:

    Best of luck to all competitors

    It certainly was a belter last year some hellish fish caught over the week puts the wrecking job to shame a lot of days for cod fishing and you are only fishing a stone throw from the shore.

    Those monster baits perry can certainly do the damage lots of mops expected this winter so it should be all action.

    UPDATE here folks, we've been uptiding for half an hour tonight we got 5 codlings biggest just under 5lb, only 6 people fishing. plenty of bites too, it seems there are lots of mops this year with a few better fish thrown in, prospects are looking excellent for the festival.

    If you like catching cod from the shore then this sort of boat fishing is for you same tackle same rigs its just great fun catching fish so close to the shore in a boat and sometimes they can be big very big quite a few double figure cod last year in the competition plus a 20lb ling so this years competition looks like being a fish bananza with all the smaller cod about at the moment should be great sport .

    Bigtides can have the edge but not allways the biggist cod uptiding i have had on sea-otter 2 was 28lb and that was on only 4.9 tide different venues for different sized tides .

    Nearly put the ankhor down myself yesterday the lads even had the worm with them as i told them get some incase we ended up going uptiding ,
    But with it being flooding for the first ouple of hours and the tide would be easing i decide to try and go out on 8 mile to start not sure how it would fish after the big sea on friday if it had been to mucky for deeop water fishing we had the bait to drop back inshore but as allways you just never know and sure enough we had fish around the 20lb mark out there yesterday so we stuck it out on the 8 or 9 mile had a gut feeling rich it would fish all sighns now look good a big uptiding season so fingers crossed.

    Hi Craig, I would opt for a tide between 4.9 and 5.4 as gives us a few more options on the day, the bookings are starting to come in now so i would recommend booking early to get the better tides, speak to you soon mate

    Last years winning fish was caught on Nov 18th 2012. So if you can find the tide book for last year you will know what the best tide was.
