estuary cod - the need for speed

UPTIDING IN MOST OF OUR estuaries during the winter can provide some brilliant cod sport. I have caught numerous cod from the Mersey, Bristol Channel and Thames Estuary over the but more recently have been focusing my efforts on the River Humber, because my mate Roger Cooling has his boat moored there. Lockdown kept us out of the marina and off the water for most of the year, but as soon as we were allowed out I really wanted to make the most of my precious day afloat. I knew there were loads of cod in the river because some of my shore angling mates had been catching plenty from both the Hull and Grimsby sides. There was only one thing for it – tie up a load of rigs and…

huss save the day

BULL HUSS ARE ONE OF several species increasing in both numbers and range of distribution, with their readiness to take a bait making this chunky fish a popular catch among boat anglers. I’ve certainly noticed they are more numerous in my local Bristol Channel and the average size has steadily increased too. Also known as the greater spotted dogfish, the bull huss (Scyliorhinus stellaris) is a species of catshark belonging to the family Scyliorhinidae. Small huss are often confused with lesser spotted dogfish, which they resemble in appearance, although huss can be distinguished due to their generally larger spots and nasal skin flaps that do not extend to the mouth. The British boat-caught record of 22lb 4oz was caught in 1986 in the Bristol Channel, off Minehead, Somerset, but the average…

the kit you need for... fishing piers

Manyshoreanglers prefer to fish piers and jetties for the simple reason they gain instant access to deeper water, meaning there is no real need to cast huge distances because many species can feed right under the rod tip. The walking will be easier too with no shingle or rocks to negotiate. If you have all of the right kit sorted, a successful session will be a doddle. Most anglers use their normal beach rods and reels for this style of fishing, ranging from continental models to powerful Zziplex rods, but there are other items you should consider. Remember, many of these structures have litter bins so there is no excuse to leave rubbish strewn over the area, which will annoy other users and, as a result, anglers can lose access to these…

join the low-profile revolution

PENN FATHOM AND SQUALL LOW PROFILE REELS RRP: £159.99 TO £269.99 A small but dedicated band of sea anglers have been using low-profile multiplier reels for more than two decades. Initially they fished lures off the shore, but then worked lures when afloat over reefs and wrecks and also when drift fishing for plaice and smaller species with braid lines. Much used elsewhere in the world, many of the major tackle manufacturers have identified a rapidly increasing market for a more modern approach to onshore and offshore angling. As a result, they have specifically designed low-profile reels that can cope with this heavy-duty workload, and among the models introduced for 2021 in the UK are the Penn Fathom and the Squall series. Being low-profile, these reels literally sit low on the rod producing far…
