Firstly, please accept my apologies that the blog has not been updated for a while, normal service is now resumed and catch reports will return on a regular basis from now on! September and October produced some excellent fishing out on the wrecks for Cod and Conger with some good Bream caught too. September saw the peak of the Conger fishing with 15 fish over 40lbs and a monster of 90lb for Tony from the Humber Cruising Association Fishing Club. The Cod fishing was excellent on the right tides with the majority of fish falling to cuttle baits fished at anchor.
The Cod were a decent size too with the vast majority going to double figures and plenty of mid to upper double fish caught too. We had 2 at 19.5lb and things look good for the inshore winter season when these fish are full of roe and pack on the pounds! Here are a few pics, there are more on our Facebook Page if you want to have a look:
On another note, a few of you who have fished with me before have asked where Mick is. She stopped helping out on the boat at the end of July and we separated as a couple at the end of September. It was a pleasure to introduce Mick to the world of boating and fishing and I’m she’ll use the skills I taught her to good effect on her next project.
