Its not just about catching fish to eat !! I just love fishing for cod full stop ! always have always will. Sure its nice to have a bit of variety every now and then with the skate and doggies BUT YOU CANT BEAT COD !! besides what meaningful quality alternative do you have instead of cod in Durham ?? I think that you are very much in a minority in the N.E. Each to their own I supposewhy do people bang on about COD ???
why not just go fishing for fish
i really hate it when all you see is cod cod cod
there are much beter fish for eating than cod and much fighters for non eaters
leave the cod alone and go fishing for other species
