Monday 13th on the Mersey

Postby Blue topaz » Tue Nov 14, 2017 12:27 pm

Chris and I cast off for a days fishing with the hope that the last spring tides had brought more cod into the river. After the winds on Sunday blowing off a lot of trips today was a different story with flat calm conditions in a 4mph wind which stayed pretty constant all day as did the cold temp.
Image

The start was quite slow but Chris was first into the fish
Image

the flow of fish wasn't red hot but a reasonable stream of whiting came aboard
Image

and some ice doubles

Image

Image

Then came the reward we were looking for, caught an hour into the flood with a lug sausage- Mr Cod just over 6lbs my own Pb

Image


As darkness fell and the low on the river started to really run we packed up retuning to the lock rafted up to Bad Boyz charter boat
Image

and one final hold before watching the youtube how to fillet a cod video !!
Image

A crackin day,thanks for your company Chris and for the supply of worm too.
P.s anybody with the Chinese hand warmers beware coz we nearly had a fire aboard as one decided to ignite into flame!!!

looking forwards to receiving it, even though I spend most of my days outdoors- cold fingers is an issue and can spoil it.

I bought mine direct from

Hopefully the ebay ones will be the same.I find I have to replace the catylyst burner once a year.
