search for Cod....

Went out for a look for a few Cod tonight.. i had heard of a few good catches last week.
So i set up my shimmy boat rod with some black feathers and a 40z lead and off i went.
Problem straight away was i kept hitting macks on the drop...and after a while i decided the reef was full of em, so a change was made and off i went to a more remote spot.
Again more macks and a tiny pollack, and then a nice Pollack.
A full string of three macks wound the feather trace up in a ball, so i switched to a jig head and slug...but no takes on that...then i put on a joey type deep diving lure in the hope a Bass would be around...but another small pollack was the only take.
So... no Cod.
A really nice evening on the water though!!
