Chesil Cod fishing Season off to a Flying start – The plan was to fish sunrise to sunset over low , up to high and 1st of the ebb. Sea state was settled with a touch of colour , but clear blue skies to start with and a n/w wind. As the day went on the cloud cover built with odd showers with the wind turning westerly and strengthening.

I was going to fish one rod with a 3/0 pennel pulley , with fresh black lug, the other was going to be a simple 1/0 , 2 hook clipped down rig , with different baits – lug , squid and crab. 1st couple of hours were doggies , pout , poor cod and whiting. Then once the sun got higher, they went off the feed, thank god. Then about a hour before low had my 1st slack liner, to my suprise out popped a plump little cod :-* :-* :-* kieth who i went down with came over and did the weighing and photos for me.
