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 ?

Hi all you lads that fish Monkstown I am planning a trip down to it during 2018 but can not decide which tides are best for the cod fishing.I am thinking that low neap tides are best like the ones from the 8th to the 14th of January and similar tides during the year would be the best tides to have any chance of getting at least some cod.So any of you regular Monkstown cod fishermen could you please try to fish these dates and let me know if my theory on the slack tides is right . A PM or open post will let me know
when I will venture down to fish for cod in Monkstown love you all and a very Codperous new year

Back in the time when cod were caught in Monkstown I would wait till the October weekend before having a cast.
Do a search under " South coast cod" there is plenty of reading there.
A bit scattered with links to other posts but enough reading to keep you going until
