Well done fish dude, I fished FerryBridge today for a few hours into the Ebb, No Codling around just pout after pout after pout after pout after pout after pout after pout - I think you know what I mean!!
What sort of distance were you casting?

Thanks, it kinda confirms what I have thought for a long time, I like many others have got into the habit of pendulum casting baits to the horizon - my own pb of 12lb was taken on a rod that i messed the cast up with that literally fell under my feet, I couldn't be bothered to reel it in again, re bait and cast so I left it there for 10 minutes and I put it down to a fluke!!
I know talking to some of the matchmen that they are starting to take distance out of their fishing and are bagging up close in i.e. less than 50yds.

afto agree with you boris i was luky enough to catch a 6.5lb cod at pagham earlyer this year and i was fishing whole squid about 25yds out for bass i only cast btween 20 and 40 yards now and seem to get moor bites . stew
