Cod fishing Monkstown advice

Postby lucaslt » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:11 pm

Hi everyone, I got a couple of weeks left staying in Carrigaline and I’m still trying to get some cods of The Wall. For now I only fished the wooden pier in front of the pub by night (every moment of the tide). I only got 2 small codlings (20-30cm) and a few small withings. I’m using fresh peelers and frozen razor fish on a pulley rig with a 3/0 Pennell hook and a 200g heavy grip lead. Even with this lead the rig is carried away when the tide is coming in or out. So here are my question : Does people getting cod of the wall this month ? Am I doing right with my baits and rig ? Should I try the grassy path mark or the mark near the tunnel by daylight for better results ?
