Vale Park 13/12/11

Postby Big Kev » Wed Dec 14, 2011 1:33 pm

Met Jay at the shelter at 4pm and had to wait 15 mins before the tide ebbed enough for us to get out in waders.....first cast produced a good thump and slack line for Jay but sadly he did`nt connect.
I was in to the whiting from the off.....
Image
Second cast and Jay was in this time,landing a nice codling of 4-5-0
Image
Things looked good with the strong wind meaning our casts were landing near the Waterloo :lol: The whiting were hanging themselves on every chuck with most around the 12oz mark....
Image
After no more cod came in the "golden hour" we ploughed through the whiting in the hope that a ray might show towards low water. I did manage to snare a codling an hour before low...
Image
It was non stop action all night but it gets frustrating when your cod baits don`t stand a chance of reaching their target with the prolific whiting...still a good night out and nice to see Jay again...til the next time

Great session by the looks, nice one.
Make a difference - take home 1 piece of someone's angling litter next time you are out fishing.

That one decent fish makes it all worthwhile in my opinion. :clap:
Each time I've fished the mersey this winter, I've thought, I wish the whiting would leave my bait alone long enough for a cod to find it.
But you never know, those bites might be saving a blank session. I don't ever go fishing to catch whiting though, so I'd rather they left it alone. :doh:

I hate whiting as much as dogs....rather blank than catch them all night :think:

The only saving grace for whiting is if you can catch one over 16 ozs,as they are a very tasty fish to eat,especially if its pan-fried instead of fried. :lol: :lol: :lol:
