i know a few of you aint going to believe me but there has been 2 coddling caught off port talbot in the last 3 weeks. i saw the first one of 2 and half lb but a few local boys have been telling me of a 5lb'er caught last week. with the weather this summer being so pwp i think we might have a proper cold winter, and a nice run of cod on the s.wales coast.

the more miserable you feel the better it is when you catch a big one. i think it'll be a good winter this year, wont take much to beat last year.

as soon as i get bk from hols on the 9th i will be on them, the newport marks will fish well for codling september, night tides are the best.for everyone saying about cold winters the sea is at its warmest in the bristol channel end of october and october through to crimbo is the best time for cod

But... is there anywhere local to Swansea that would produce these bad boys? or is a big travel distance needed:cry: Realy want to catch one :shutup:

you might get one off mumbles pier or knab rock, but last year was rubbish. a few were being caught further east, past cardiff and right up the channel but it was a crap season everywhere.
