Following on from my recent tutorial on Winter Cod Fishing – How to Catch Big Cod you will now have an understanding as to why winter can be such an exciting time with the chance of a big Cod very close to shore.
But, and it’s a BIG but, my regulars will know that the best Cod sessions EVER aboard Grey Viking II occurred in January and we were WRECK FISHING with lures! How can that be you may ask? Well, this quote from my last post gives the clue:
“They then move to feeding areas, which may be associated with herring abundance”
So there is your clue. I know when this can happen and whilst it’s a gamble there are potential big rewards to be had when Cod shoal up on certain wrecks to feed on herring prior to spawning.
If you’re not familiar with what happened on those trips this video sums it up nicely:
Alas last winter the weather was atrocious and denied us an opportunity to get out and try it again! This winter, during December and January, I’ve again selected the correct tides to have another go at a repeat performance.
Winter Wrecking Trips
On these dates we will go wrecking if the weather allows or revert to a ground trip for Cod if that’s the only fishable option on the day. The wrecks that might hold Cod are 30 miles or more from Brighton.
If you are booking the boat the cost will be £550, reduced to £450 if the weather dictates an inshore Cod trip.
For individuals, booking on a per person basis, there will be 8 spaces per trip at a cost of £70 each, reduced to £55 each if inshore is the only option on the day.
