As gazmonster said good going for an hours fishing.
They have been around now since early August! very hit and miss though. there one tide gone another.
Trouble is now gunna have to get there 5hrs early to get a spot.:bangin:
Its gunna become a littter fest, and every codling from about 8 inches is gunna be classed as a keeper:whistling

Well done mate.

Nice to see the cod are around and in good numbers. :fish:
shame the asbo kids are too:boxing:

could always have a race with them though.....each chuck one in and see who's asbo gets to a certain point first, could attract big crowds and a good betting ring to provide bait money for the next trip!

no............just a thought lol

Excactly gunna be a freak show down there now!!
Best avoided unless you like everybody setting up 5ft next to you, unable to hold in the tide with their 4oz plain bombs, tangled lines, casting over the top of you and idiots trying to pendulumn cast and not using leaders! Bait wrappers everywhere! Oh yea all those nice cars for the local scum to break into. need i go on........................ It happens every year down hear its like chesil with the feather chuckers in the summer!

It's not all bad Karl, Let the crowds all get tangled I say. I'd just sit and watch'em, then go collect all their lost gear.
I wandered down portishead at low today armed with a bucket and some scissors, I ended up with 22 leads in 20 minutes.Some of the gear was questionable to say the least. But it all gets melted down to make shiny new namix :)
Peanut fair play to the guys catchin loads of codling, but the trick with the channel is to go where you think's right at the time, cos they'll be gone again the next tide. Upper channel in general is always a safer bet than mid or lower channel this time of year, but the fish can show anywhere. Personally I prefer the odds of my bait amongst 2 or 3 others maximum, as opposed to a place with 30 or 40 baits in the water. Layde bay was always the same in the 90's, one 10lb cod and next week 40 anglers all blanking, then when it's quiet another biggun comes out.
