Of course Andy as Eccles has said that's complete baloney- You must surely be mistaken in using such baloney tactics that successfully landed you and your mate kev some decent codling at Orford ( photographs of which you posted) . Instead of using baloney techniques with big hooks and big baits what you really need is a size 16 hook with half a lugworm on it because the scent from that half a lug will attract all the fish in the sea including the biggies- cod, dab, bass, Gt white shark you name it you'll get it- you could easily winch a 15lb cod through the East Coast surf or up the pier using small Aberdeens without the hook bending straight and would probably catch far more than you have done already.ANDYT63 wrote:Personally I`m using 3/0`s and BIG baits at the mo in a vain attempt to fish through the whiting and pout. Not succeeding. Even dabs swallow a 3/0.
