Fished there on Friday, 12 casts, 8 cod landed, hung up with 3, and only one cast without a bite. Any combination of lug, mussel, crab, squid, and razor worked. Fish at 40 yards.

Excellent fishing - makes it all seem worthwhile when you get a day like that. Were the fish of good size? What were the conditions like?

Well done..........

Sorry lads, no pics, I only took my camera phone. All the fish were about 2-1/2lb, with 3lb the biggest. The sea was calm which I understand is the best time to fish this mark. The reason being is that you are fishing over a ledge, and when the sea gets up a bit, you just get washed under the ledge and can't get the gear back. Even when it was calm I had to fish with a rotten bottom and went through a fair amount of lead.
The following day a group of lads from an angling club near where I live ( Newcastle area ) had a comp at the same mark but there was a bit more movement in the sea, most of them just lost tackle, but one had 8 fish with the best about 8lb.
