It is not easy to arrange a trip with 23 fishermen on a short notice

But many showed interest at last moment and I had to send 7 fishermen to the second boat.

 

Thought it was a little rough, we enjoyed fine fishing with great guys. We had plenty of food and drinks to share.

when everyone wanted to do it again after fishing, you know how good it was. :)

 

When we arrived there, drift was too fast though we picked away cod. I had a few cod on the first drift using 10 oz JIGNPOP Flat Hammered Diamond jig,

When they anchored, bait fishermen caught many tuna while cod didn't respond to jigs.

 

Later on we drifted and bait fishermen and jig fishermen continued to catch cod.

The last spot was the best.  it was like one cast one cod. The sizes on the last spot was impressive. I got 30 lb cod on 8' Black Hole Challenger Bank M/JM PE2 reel combo using 8 oz JIGNPOP Flat Hammered Diamond jig. 

 

I experimented Bill Hurely's 7 1/2" sand eel soft bait on the last trip and I was quiet surprised at the effectiveness of the teaser.

So I decided to test it again on this trip. I had about 20 cod on jigs and 5 - 6 cod on bait. Among 20 cod on jigs, only three cod hit jigs and all others took the sand eel teaser. 

 

Here are pictures of the trip.
