What you can expect to catch each month
The Cod are still on the ground. At the start of the month fishing at anchor, the best bait is Cuttlefish, Black Lug or Squid. The middle of the month, they are starting to go on to deep water wrecks on the drift with pirks.
The Pollock are now running on the mid channel wrecks. The fish are full of roe now, so they have plenty of weight to them. The best way to catch these fish is on red gills and Jelly worms with a long flowing trace on the drift.
Mid channel wrecks have good Cod on them now. Some great lunkers and full of roe, fishing on pirks on the drift. Still big Pollock around as well. you will find March is a very windy month and will struggle to get out much, however, if you do, it will be worth it.
April is a similar month to March, Pollock and Cod are running together now. Still on the deep water wrecks. First few Congers are just starting to show on certain wrecks and plenty of Mackerel now showing for bait.
