    Set off to dig some worms in the rain this morning, as I was driving to the coast it looked a lot brighter, even thought it may have stopped before I got there. I was wrong!! It just about chucked it down the entire time I dug.
    The strong southerly was holding an inch of water and there was hardly any cast showing, so had to dig a trench, it took me a couple of hours, but managed to get enough for what I needed.
    Had a look on a couple of southern beaches, but did not like the look of the swell, and the lads in the pictures were picking plenty of weed up, as you can see by the photos of Easington it was really starting to lift, with the wind due to get stronger, I knew I had to move further North, round the bend to get out of it .


    Got to chosen destination, perched myself on a nice ledge on the cliff, and lobed one out, that was tapping away before I even got the second rod set up, and pesky whiting was still about even with the swell on.
    Just reeling a whiting on one rod, and noticed a good pull, then my braid drifting off into the wind, quickly put my rod down and grabbed my other, reeled like mad finally got caught up to this fella, a cod of about 3 1/2lb.

    Had a few more taps and a few more whiting, over top of tide then just as it was getting dark, my mate had just rung to see how I was getting on when I noticed a good rattle and my braid was slacking up again, put phone down wound like mad resulted in my second cod of the day another one just slightly bigger than the first. give a real good fight with all the swell,

    Only had another cast or two after this, tide was starting to drop, and could not be bothered to go down onto the beach, don't think I would have been able to cope with all the waves as the sea was getting shallow it had really picked up.
    Caught on worm and squid, pulley pennels

    Nice pair of cod hopey. Was braver then me. I was all geared up to go myself today but decided against it in the rain.
    So try tomorrow, just hope it's fishable with this strong wind again.

    Well deserved fish there hopey. Good read & pictures too. I have been surprised at how these whiting are staying around in a swell. I don't miss that walk out onto the mud at spurn. Much easier up my way.

    Well done hopey you fared better than I did last night mate, 2 hours at the point over low then blasted over to dimmo under the turbines for another 4 hours over high , I just couldn't get through the whiting And that's after a day on the tools then an hours digging on spurn :( Sometimes I wish I was addicted to something less invasive on life like crack or smack instead of fishing :D. Cheers Chris
