Having a mooch on youtube and clocked the above titled video. It's the first time I've watched it myself after having known of it's existence for years. I got to say what a cracking video it is. At least it's something to entertain you while these weather fronts keep rolling in.

I've never been one to be fanatical/overly keen about cod fishing, but after watching the above, it really did give me the urge to go codding at the Deeps. Just a shame fishing like that will only ever be a pipe dream. Just goes to show how dire the shore cod numbers from the Bristol Channel are today when compared to the late 90's. So, do you now have the urge to go codding? :D

Ahhhh I remember them well, Cod were plentiful and cheaper than Salmon to buy!!!!! Cod now have a hefty price on their heads which makes them even more vulnerable. John

I was a member of the cod squad when Kevin peter and Stan were catching on the deeps me and my mates were bagging up on Newton point some days we'd have 5 or 6 each with the odd double mixed in happy days. It wasn't uncommon to have 150-180 fish per winter used to have a fish freezer in the garage with 5 drawers rammed full of fillets.

Can't really believe how the fishing was back in the day to now. I know summer is just around the corner so we can start to catch some tidy fish but it would be great if we could have a decent bit of winter fishing. Just goes to show how much the cod stock is dissapering

greatly entertaining video, some cracking fish and a couple of familiar faces. Imagine making a video now, the cover would have Ed's dogfish on it!!
