Cod are starting to show now in Dungeness. To be in with a chance of catching them you need to make sure that you fish when the conditions are right.
Best time to fish is after a South Westerly blow. Wait until we get a couple of strong SW winds then get down there when the wind starts veering North-West.

Baits: The Dungeness Black Lugworm are best!!! although early in the season whole squid works well.

Hi Callum,good luck on the Cod wont be the only one it gets rammed down there try this link for your bait & info. remember if the forecasts say 10-15 mile hr winds,when you get on the beach they'll be more like 25-30.

As Lee saids, it does get busy down there. As soon as there is a report of cod it attracts anglers like metal to magnet! I would never fish there at night during cod season as the difficult thing is the tide run at Dungeness. You need to cast up tide and it is difficult to do that when you have got anglers no more than 25ft either side of you.

I would say the most popular spot is the "Point". It is located and accessed via a barrier on the left about 500 yards past the lifeboat station. Park up opposite the barrier and walk to the beach.

The fresher the bait the better obviously and demand is strong during cod season. So order yours in advance if you can.
