    Had local builders K and D onboard yesterday and with a very small tide perfect combination for big ling to stick there noses out and sure enough that is exactly what happened first time boat fishing John Wood got belter of a ling my eletric scales got damaged the other day so it couldnt be weighed exact and my spring balance only go to 16lb and it bottomed out instantly with the weight of the fish it looked around the 18-20lb a bonny fish john was over the moon .

    John with his whopper a big smile he took the sweep another one of the lads lost one as big couldnt do nothing with it and it just slipped the hook.


    The lads back in the harbour with a few of there fish they had stacks of ling and some cod as well.

    Well done on your P.B. ling John,now you'll have to book again to try and catch its mam or dad :happy:
    You certainly have a knack of locating them 20lb+ ling at the moment Paul...now for a 20lb cod eh?

    Biggest i've seen was with Paul on Sea Otter in 2004 or 2005, when in the Autumn festival John Roberts from merseyside (a mate of Paul Pantalerisco) caught a 36 lb one on a purple Hok-kai at around the same distance!.
    Big baits for big fish got thrown over the side on this occasion!. Recall holding the back half of it on board when Killa filleted it for John, and he said its stomach was empty. Maybe it had been on a diet!

    On my first ever boat trip, I had a 25 lb ling on just white feathers. The skipper at the time actually said it was amazing how many big ling fall to just plain feathers. I think the boat was Saxon lady about 15 years ago. It's funny how things change so much.
