Tilbury Fort this morning

Post by Bonking »

had a go down tilbury fort this morning, high tide was at 2.30am, me and my mate started fishing at about midnight, i had 4 whiting (2 were decent sized) and a codling of about 2lb, my mate had a couple of whiting and lost a decent fish close in. we were having them on lug, squid and makerel cocktails...

the bloke fishing next to us had a few whiting, and at about 1hr before high tide he hooked into a nice codling which went 5lb, the cod coughed up a small whole pouting shortly after being landed, so they're out there and they're feeding! here's the pictures...
