Q: I have read that when fishing for cod in coloured water, it is best to use large worm baits in order to ensure a strong scent trail. Just how large should these baits be?

DL says: When using either lug or rag for cod, i like to use a bait about the length of my hand, from the wrist to the finger tips. a bait this size will be large enough to attract fish in coloured water, and small enough for codling to take, as well as very big fish.
