We’d planned to go up to Rossall, Fleetwood last weekend but the wind direction and strength played havoc with our plans so I arranged to meet a few friends at the venue known as Hall Road which is basically the sea front at Crosby, Liverpool.
This venue can throw up some good fish but needs an onshore wind so with the wind blowing up to 20 miles per hour left to right (Southerly) our chances weren’t good but we managed to find a space and launched our lugworm baited rigs into the night. We soon found that the Cod were not in and all either myself or Wendy could manage were a few tiny Whiting of about 6″ long. We heard that a larger fish had been ‘lost’ while bringing it over the promenade railings but no-one we know saw it.
So not a very good start to the winters Cod fishing but we’re still waiting for a major drop in temperature. That should bring the Cod and the larger Whiting in. Good to be out though and like they say, “If you haven’t got a line in the water, you’ll never catch a fish”.
