Nobody said sea fishing was clean and tidy. In this video, Dave Barham proves that it isn't. However, all that 'mess' you see is 'scent'...which spells 'food' to cod!
As with a lot of the videos that the Boat Fishing Monthly crew produce, this is one that can be used when beach fishing, too.
Also, it's not a difficult bait to prepare; you just need a cuttlefish (well, half of one!), a couple of lugworm and some bait elastic.
Fished on a standard pennel rig, this is a bait that any self-respecting cod will find impossible to ignore. Give it a try some time....just remember to take a cloth to wipe your hands on!
