My first Cod ever:
On 5th November 2011, I was fortunate enough to boat a Cod of 18lb 2oz whilst aboard Paul Smith's charter boat Rapid Fisher. It was caught just off the Needles, Isle of Wight. I was using an 80lb flowing Pennel trace baited with two Ammo Dirty Squid (from Euro Angling). My Rod was a 30lb Penn Commander Surecatch and reel was a WSB DB30 multiplier. It was the only Cod caught on the day.
