Post by dontcatchmuch »

For me, its the most edible fish, and the hardest to catch. its the only fish i would keep if i caught a nice size one. Fish butties. ;)

because cod fishing up our way (when you can get out) is great fun.
The howling winds blowing you of the mark, the freezing temperatures busting your nuts, the expectations of catching a lunker and the massive swells in an onshore blow and massive baits more suited to a dinner plate being flung out on a 7 oz gripper all add to the excitement of cod fishing even if you dont catch one.
But thats just me

perhaps taking some light gear and you may get a good fight from many fish. i think because we all fish for the mighty cod our gear dosnt give any othe speicies a chance.

I agree a good point Hatter.
It depends on where you are fishing as i use heavy stiff rods from the rocks but always lighter gear from the beaches even if it is for cod.
