COD & POLLOCK ON THE DRIFT:
FISHING FOR COD WITH TWIN TAILS, SHADS, FAT TAIL WORMS: Use a seaboom tube type or strong wire type, attach your trace approx 1 – 1.5m so quite short and add your weight, use a cannon ball weight for drifting. Cod feed on the bottom so you need to stay in touch with them, drop your rig down and once you feel the bottom, reef or wreck then start a slow windup to about 10 turns and then drop down again. If you feel a take DON’T STOP, DON’T STRIKE, DON’T PUMP THE ROD let the fish take the lure and it will hook itself.
FISHING FOR POLLOCK WITH JELLY WORMS, EELS, SLIMLINE SHADS: use same technique as previous only increase your trace length, speak to your skipper he will advise you for the location and the numbers on the boat. Come up more turns up to 50 on your reel and note when you get a take how many turns, vary the speed of winding.
The key is: DON’T STOP, DON’T STRIKE, DON’T PUMP THE ROD We know it works as it’s what we do !!
