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.
