Yes i can understand it's slipping/swimming away fast with these weather conditions.
We don't have Cod and Polack close to the shore in the Netherlands.
Only 40 miles out so with kayak very difficult.
I target on fresh water species during the winterseason. If the water is not alll frozen into ice! ;(
haha freezing over here now minus 8 degrees.
No signs of global warming last 2 winters.
