all species are possible but u got to get the wind direction tide movement size of tide bait and rigs perfect, if u fish there all the time take a book and mark the times of tides and wind direction, this is absolute crucial to catching winter cod, if u do this ur catch rate will soar, good luck ;)

very interesting indeed, so much information is being found by everyone,

what a great bunch of lads we have all trying to help each others understanding,

on a quick note cod can live in brackish water,

the spratts will probably be around for a few weeks yet,

but they will go and the cod will still be around,

hi seapanda,

cod and whiting see a shoal cof spratts open there huge mouths and fill up with them causing them to get full and sulk somewhere,

because the spratts are up in the water so are the fish meaning no fish near your baits,

my theory anyway

hi mate,

im not from your area but what i would say is contact a tackle shop local to you or localish and ask if they can provide fresh lug if you order in advance, if you use the same shop time after time they normally sort u out the bigger fresher worms to keep there "regulars regular" ;)

wasting your time scouring the groynes and shoreline,

they are few and far between but still available in the deeper water where boats tow a net for them,

man thats one long URL, well done on finding the match,

seems like they are commonly found dead on the shores of the east coast,

wonder why this is, if they dont like cold weather why dont they migrate?

looks like a black bream, although the mouth resembles more like a snapper or something,

where was it found?
