    Its very rare I fish with baits using artificials as my main attrack from about 30 odd years ago when muppets were all the rage and I've just sort of tried any amount of strange rubber things and bits of shiny plastic with hooks in to lure fishing from a boat with plugs and worms but if I had to pick one method for the whole year it would have to be shad fishing

    Shad fishing when they're having a go is just fantastic, no little taps and was that a bite, balanced tackle light rods that bend and give and smallish (6500) multipliers loaded with 20lb mono or 30lb braid and you know you've got every one one. Cod of 4/5lb on the right gear give a good account of themselves and certainly kill the old tale of cod not fighting

    I voted the other day but have just left a comment as below.

    I used alot of hokies last year fished with a jigger on the bottom I like my jigging in the summer but I also use Shads as well and have had good results. However last year the Hokies and Jiggers seamed to out fish the Shads as a mate of mine only fishes with Hokies and on one perticular day I changed to shads but he was getting more fish on Hokies having said that the fish I got on the Shads were of better sizes also it,s lighter work on the arms.
    I also enjoy Uptiding through the winter months although my boat is out of the water for the winter.
    I would say 2009 was a year to remember for me best year i,v had for a while now. Let hope this year is as good if not better.

    When i first start i like to use a jig, it is a killer method on wrecks, but after two to three hours i will go on the shads, it is a lot easier on the arms the older you get :wounded: :embarrass:

    Only been wreck fishing once so not got a favourite method but in years gone by my favourite method was chrome pirks and rippers.

    While only a newcomer to boat fishing, shad fishing has got me hooked. They really gave you an edge over the wrecks last week and some guys did really well with sidewinder sandeels for the pollock.

    It depends totally on where you are and conditions-
    In shore, shallow water slow drift and wanting only big fish -pirk only
    In shore, shallow water slow drift and wanting any size fish - pirk and hokies (smaller hokies if you want mac)
    If your deeper water and you want to avoid casting the pirk all the time -shad
    If you want ling bait every time (on its own or with hokies in dirty water)

    The most enjoyable fishing is when your catching fish

    Just my opinion -Regards John

    Thats good news, my son and i have our yearly week of boat fishing out of whitby commencing sunday week, and we have a good collection of sidewinder sandeels. Hopefully the Pollack will oblige (weather permitting?).
