I enjoyed uptiding once I got used to casting on a boat full of blokes and all the associated risks. I watched a video on the TV of a guy who really promotes uptide fishing off the Essex coast and when I saw it in action I had to have a go and this is the result a 23lb cod.
Taken on a lug and squid cocktail using a fine wire hook pennel rig and light braid line. Seeing that rod tip action when the breakaway bite comes is frst class and as the fish virtually hook them selves, playing them on light tackle and rig is really good sport. The big hair brings back memories too !
