Hi guys,

I was speaking to a Norwegian friend about the lures he uses for catching cod back home. Here are a few of his suggestions.

The top ones look very much like the Ron Thompson Nordic Herrings. Anyone tried these and had any luck with them?

Do you think that it's worth a try down at Dungeness with the lures this winter?

My mate uses 28g-40g, but would it be worth going heavier to get some distance?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

All the best,
Tony.

Has to be worth a try, once the bait guys start to report Cod in numbers (not quite there yet), bet a SP bounced round in the current would be worth a try too.

You'd just have to find somewhere where the fish run close enough to shore. Maybe piers or breakwaters would be worth a shot (the thought's crossed my mind with a couple of local spots offerring potential ), with a drop net at hand should you get lucky. I don't know about open beaches....the thought of pendulum casting an SP with a heavy head and heavy enough rod to get it out 100 yards plus surely defeats the object. I don't know how you'd stand controlling the lure at such range.

Hello mate.
Wouldn't advise it at dungie mate, you'll lose gear quicker than you can tie it on. Also the conditions that bring the fish in are really not suited to lures, cloudy water, weed and big swells.
If i was going to try it it would have to be night, calm and up towards the boils where the tide isn't so ridiculous.
Would think maybe somewhere like samphire hoe would be worth a go, very rough ground but i know the boats round there have good success in the winter bottom bouncing whole squid on the drift very close in.
You never know.
Cheers

Thanks for the replies guys. I'll try to get down to Samphire Hoe when I get some time. By the way, what/where are the boils?

All the best,

Tony.

Hello mate.
The boils are the warm water outlets behind the power station.
If you did head up to dungie you would want to head up towards them as the tide is not as fierce and the water not as deep or snaggy as the point.
If you went up there on a night when it was calm and clear you never know you may well have a suprise! if you do get one please let me know! Will be the end of my beachcasting days!
Thinking about it samphire hoe may not be the best place its a fair drop to the water, would make working lures hard..
Hmm, if i hear of anything i'll let you know.
Cheers!
