In search of Cod no 50 of the season.

Postby Big Hitter » Tue Feb 19, 2019 4:32 pm

Had a couple of hours spare so decided to try for my 50th Cod over 2lb this year.
Went to my favourite mark in the river and started fishing 2 hours after high.
Image
Bait for me was blacks, fresh Crab and a bit of squid
Image
Image
Wasn’t a lot of tide run so again I fished at distance.
Had five small fish between 8oz and 1lb.
Decided on one more cast before I called it a day.
Nod nod big slack line and a superb fight. This fella turned up, Image
A stunning fresh, chunky fish around 3 1/2lb and was my 50th Cod over 2lb this year so I was well happy.
Image
More than happy with the year I’ve had so far and feel as if I’ve done it right fishing big baits at distance on an ebbing tide.
I’ve actually found the bigger tides more productive.
Will be back out soon.

I use 2 5/0 Mantas on a pennel mate. 70lb Asso rig body and 30lb Amnesia Hooklength. I don’t use a pulley rig anymore just a straight clipped down rig and mainly 175g leads.

It is my friend. They are just Gemini bait clips but I use the bigger ones as I use big hooks and baits.

How does the multi set up compare with the fixed spool for distance?

For me personally I am probably casting multis further than I was fixed spools, but not by much. Only bonus with fixed spools is you can use lighter line but where I fish anything less than 14lb and your not getting much gear back now. I had a go of fixed spools for about a year and really enjoyed using them but I’ve always been a multiplier user. I encountered a few issues using fixed spools especially if I had a strong side wind. Because there is no resistance for the line coming off the spool I ended up with a huge bow in my line and found the weight of the line would hinder my distance by pulling the lead to the left or right depending on wind direction and add that to a big bait and a 175g-200g lead it wasn’t beneficial as I was loosing distance.

Well done that man. Quality bait and knowing how to use it wins the day. 48 more than I managed this season, but I will making sure I have a supply of peeler for next year.
