Be quiet, that’s my fav Shimano hoodie. All the way from JonD land. 

That explains a lot. Did the great msn himself autograph it?

Now that is a very decent fish, a proper fish  ................ our Cod grounds only produce codling to about 2 - 4lb, to get bigger fish it has to be off the wrecks.

There are about 70 wrecks on my plotter within easy steaming distance and only ONE of them produces cod with any consistency .................

However, many of the others will produce 10 -15lb Pollock without too much effort ..............

We have also found one wreck that consistently produced coalfish in the summer, so it is going to get a winter visit .................

Genuine question - are coalfish any good to eat? Guessing they're like pollack?

Yes, but a bit firmer and stronger tasting than pollock ................ again, like pollock, foodwise  it is the poor mans cod ............ (Colin)

I am not keen on Ling, but I am a fussy fish eater ................
