    Well glen after a few beers in my local the ship ( sorry my pub) just nicely chilling out well after my couple of hours fishing today i had to just sit and chill out got my best fish for well over 10years , i decided after yesterday i fanced a couple of hours this afternoon the wind had dropped the sea was just starting to drop it looked blob on for a fish allmost anywhere so i went where i thought i might have clicked a lunker yesterday the west peir i have had over the years some unbelievable bags of fish off that peir but only in the right conditions today it looked cracking a lovelly big lazy roll so i popped down for a couple of hours there was a few mops comeing in here and there but i put a big bait out purposely to fish for a better fish and sure enough i was lucky and hooked into what i thought was a decent codling 8 or 9 lb it wasnt till i got it near the peir i realized it was much better fish then it surfaced and i knew it was well into double figures looking at the fish i knew it couldnt be lifted so thought about the best options to get this ashore i allways ues a 50-60lb leader and hook trace for lifting but anything over 10lb is dodgy so the fun began i was fishing of the end of the west peir there was another 2 guys on the peir one was fishing next to me and another near the corner i told the guy who was fishing next to me this fish had to be beached other wize i would of had no chance with it so as i thought the harbour looked the best choice try and get the fish all the way to the bandstand there is some steps there which would be an ideal landing place it looked one hell of a task but after half of hour of guiding the fish past all sorts of obstructions we finally managed to get the fish to steps next to the bandstand but in the final momments of landing the fish the fish became tangled on the handrails ajacent to the steps but the lord must have been looking down on us and i got it free a fine fish of 16lb nice to see i think there is more of those fellows to come this winter we had loads of cod 13--15lb in the boat this backend so there might be an odd fish nearing the 20lb mark keep believeing boys.
