    Fylde Coast Update 15/2/02Well it has been a long time coming but, there are some fish about. The past three weeks as we all know have probably the worst that any of us can remember. Relentless wind and rain which has all but put paid to the cod fishing, a shame too as it had been excellent up until this appalling run of weather.
    However, the good news there have been fish caught. Top fish over the past week has been a 8lb 4oz Cod caught by Tim Taylor fishing the pumping station at Rossall. Reports also of good numbers of smaller codling from around the same area. Fleetwood is giving fair numbers of fish with Dronsfield Rd., ChatsworthAve and Cadet Base all giving whiting, codling, occasional flounder, and a stray bass to 3lb. More bass are possible with the heavy weather pushing them through a little earlier than is usual.
    Cleveleys and behind Rossall School offers small codling to 2lb along with whiting, and flatfish.
    North Wall and Gynn wall have given moderate returns with codling to 2lb 8oz, whiting, flounder and dab.
    Expect the coming weekend to give some decent returns as the heavy weather subsides, the sea will still be very coloured but will be flatter and fishable. This should enable anglers to have some good sessions over the weekend. There is still a chance of a big cod, as there are still reports of the stry lunker being reported.
    Top bait will be worm but shellfish will also come into its own at this time. There are literally thousands of shellfish littering the beach after these heavy storms so there is consequently a larder of food there for the fish and the angler, bear this in mind when you go fishing.
    The outlook is good, after the previous three weeks it could not be worse really could it?
    Enjoy the fishing you have all waited long enough for it.

    On the boats, Recent heavy weather has prevented boats getting out. however excellent catches over the past few days and continues to be expected when fishable.

    Codling catches have improved along with whiting,dab and flounder Flooding tide giving best results with things slack over high water.

    JOHN TRY THE BACK OF THE POWER STATION NEXT TIME,go in between the two out flows and cast half and next to the rocks long the outflow its self.
    use lug worm- or lug and crab cocktail, go to morecambe anglers center on thornton rd for your worm, you might get a surprise this time of year i did several times.
