All depends on what fish you are talking about: Great Whites have been observed and well documented hunting in the wild and could possibly shed some light on feeding patterns. I've seen underwater footage of Pouting and Conger within inches of each other and the Pouting did'nt blink an eyelid. I sup...

Clipped down rigs often unclip when laying the weight on the floor when off-the-ground-casting. The reason for this is slack in the line, so try and keep the line tight once the weight is on the ground, this is difficult when using a stiff rod as the slightest movement will jerk the weight.

Doronron - You're right the best place to fish is off the end over low water. Strong tides make it impossible to fish 2 1/2 hr before and after high water. What I normally do is fish the end then move down to the bottom once the tide starts screaming. Best bait for Codling is blow Lug and peeler cra...
Kept busy all night with Dogs, Whiting, Pouting and a small Huss about 4lb. Fish a cast apart from last two. Unfortunately another year passes by without a decent Codling. Tight-Lines for the New Year, hoping you have a good one.
Rabbi - No offence but your boat looks to posh to be a fishing boat. If I seen that on a trailer down Bolsach Fishdock i'd be looking around for David Hasselhoff or some Playboy type with a plastic banana. You could have left a few Macky scales on for show. lol
Crookie - There's been a few reports about Colwyn Bay on this site. Not a hard place to find, why don't you go and try it out for yourself, there are tackle shops in Colwyn Bay, they would know best about the catch reports. If you wan't Cod then don't bother fishing the Irish Sea they are more or le...
BLAH - Good question - I am not just saying it but Conoflex Nemesis Diablo Plus or something similar would probably do the trick. What seems to be the problem is having a rod that casts 8oz with good bite detection. These rods don't dance in the wind and will pull a 10lb fish clean out of the water....
I use a Conoflex Nemesis Plus and Daiwa Tournament and know for a fact that the cast goes flat when overhead thumping. This is simply because the rod has to be compressed. I used to cast further back in 1987 with a Mitchell 486 FS and Paul Kerry Beachcaster. Top of the range tournament casting rods ...
The rod has to be compressed. You will have to develop your casting in order to bend this rod to get the full potential. Practice makes perfect all the distance casters I know have spent many an hour practicing with plain leads. Tip - It's not as easy as it looks, technique is all to do with timing,...
