Big baits

Post by wannacatch1 » Fri Dec 02, 2011 8:53 pm

When fishing in the winter I usally set 1 rod on a pulley pennel and 1 on a running ledger or a 2 hook flapper,not had much luck on the cod is it worth setting them both up with the pulley method?

The only time i would use big baits on both rods would be if there are plenty of cod around. As these times are rare i would just do what your doing. At least you can have some fun with whiting and pout whilst you wait. And wait. And wait. And wait.......You get the idea ;)

Eastney beach can produce codling from time to time. Normally i wouldnt believe it until my m8 had a 4lber ;). Gilkicker might be worth a try on smaller tides. If you can travel further then dungerness would be a good bet :).

Warning! If going to dungie then take plenty of rigs and weights. My m8 went there and lost 14 rigs but he had 6 cod up to 9lb ;)

Haslar is good for the usual suspects. Pout and whiting can be prolific there. Not so much for cod fishing. I would favour Gilkicker for cod ;)
