hit the beach 13:30 ht 15:25took my boy for the first time. set up two rods 1 running lead, 1 two hook flapper 1 up 1 down, bait massive lug (thanks to mark 11 angling crayford)and some smelly squid refroze from my last trip. . first cast on flapper produced the smallest yting i have ever seen ( just two eyes and a bum) then my sons rod went crazy, he landed his first ever fish and a decent yting as well, both rods were bouncing all the way to ht, then it died, 1/2 hour after my sons rod gets a blinding slack liner he struck and says its stuck after i got it free (as i thought) the dam thing bent double, i give him back the rod, after a struggle with him trying to wind it in i could have slaped him, up to the beach comes a lovely codling of about 5 lb, ~X( the next two hours see nothing but yting, packed up at 19:30 with the sound of my son banging on about when we going again ,did take a photo but can hardly see it , i might take him again but tie him to his chair. enjoyed the session and a bit of time with my boy but i havent had a cod for nearly TWO YEARS .
