Very surprised that no Cod were caught, but you can only catch what is in front of you and reports of any cod caught at Chesil are few and far between, but then not everyone will report it if they do catch one

Probably accounts for why I'm not a match angler as I wouldn't get out of bed for 10 pout (y)
Me too mate, in fact don't bait fish anymore now anyway...
BUT the serious match anglers - always the same names in the frame - are bloody good and their fishing abilities are often well underestimated......they normally have several strategies to target various fish over different states of the tide, and will be fishing from just below the surface on occasions, targeting scad, macks and Gars, to hard on the bottom for the normal species. Baits, rigs and gear taken to the nth level too.....

Personally, don't like match fishing at all, but got to admire the guys that are successful at it, and we have a VERY good track record at World Level too.

My local Hero is Chris Clark - great bloke, as well as a fantastic Angler, and World Champion too IIRC....also got chosen to carry the Olympic torch a few years back now, through Lymington. I'm pretty sure his old username on here was 'Pout'....tells you something!

Probably agree with most of what you say, but I have my own boat and blanking on it is not something I very often have to worry about and I usually manage to catch some decent fish and it's certainly a different proposition than beach fishing where blanking is part of the sport and if I do go beach fishing it will be for Smoothhound, Plaice, Bass, Cod or even a decent sized Whiting, but I'm not in to tiddler bashing to earn a few quid.
