Jon then landed two codling in reasonably quick succession of around the 4lb mark
It was now so cold that little droplets of ice were forming on the lines and every time we reeled in we had little snowballs collected between finger and thumbs! Every time I reeled in and rebaited I spent the next five minutes with my hands around my knackers trying to regain the feeling in my fingertips (you all know that burning sensation as blood returns to your fingers).
Jon then had a classic bite (which he never saw as he was dicking around trying to repair a reel). The rod tip knocked and then started to head downwards and never came back up, even lifting the butt of the rod of the ground. This was the result at what I reckon was about 5lb
Jon had now beaten his PB three times on the night while I didn’t have another bite (he’s a spawny git).
Another picture (smug aint he) of Jon with the night’s catch.
Here’s the four fish of the night. Mine is the piddly one at the bottom (I’m not jealous).
A great night’s fishing in Baltic conditions.
