Just back from a 20 lug trip.

It was a bit bumpy early on with the wind over the tide, but there were no white horses and it was refreshing to be out in a bit of weather!

Fishing 3 a hook hokai rig with a lug on each hook, drifting at 2mph I could not hold bottom with a 5oz lead in 35 feet so I doubled up the leads put fresh bait on and got mugged by this little chap on the way down



More fresh bait and a downtide lob put the leads hard on on the bottom for the first time and straight in.



A nice 4lb Cod!



Then I lost both leads and the bottom hook and on the next next drop caught this tiny codling.



And that was the bait finished all in one drift.

It doesn't get much better than this.

Thanks for securing the front of the boat Champ!

I have not checked the forum for a few days and when I saw your post this morning I went down before work.

The rope you put on was still there and I have now set a shackle in place of the clip that had failed.

Thanks again

Jock
