    Chris Brigham's recollection of a momentous day, I remember back in 1975 when I was 10 and me dad were fishing marine drive near caffee..me dad was using a,modern arms castaway rod with an abu 7000. after a few casts me dads rod started to pull over and started sliding down the top rail towards the sea,after about a 15 min struggle there lay a cod of 22 and a half pound on marine drive with about 150 holiday makers stood round us,she had just spawned, otherwise she could have pipped the 30lb plus mark,couldn't even eat it..Shame they had to put up the sea defences.

    Yes Paul had more than his fair share!
    I had one just over 14lb from Whitby East pier extension boxing day 1974 on a big ball of mussel
    Also one of 10lb 8oz from Runswick Beach on lugworm one December about 1971
    Ian Russell had a big one about 16lb I think from West Pier in the mid 70s that I witnessed. It was low tide so he went down for it.
    I had a huge fish on my line on Whitby East pier extension in Dec 1971. It snapped off half way up and was found dead washed up on the scaur next day - officially weighed at Whitby Angling Suppliers at over 17lb with my hook in it's mouth ! I guess that doesn't count though.....
    All were pleasure fishing.

    Hi Bernie, Thanks for your input, a good read also with the neccessary information, unfortunately the 17Iber does not count, but a great story nevertheless about the one that got away or not in this case. Will update the league later tonight.

    Mike , did you get the 16lb 13oz Mick Chadwick had in the 2008 Whitby Open from bottom of Lady Green, there was a great photo of that fish on the site somewhere.(just found it). I d just left the spot he caught that from...when I walked back he laughed and said he couldn't believe I d moved at the time I did...damn it ! Was a wonderful sight seeing him haul that leviathan from his fish bag lovely marked fresh fish.

    Hi, just out of curiosity and interest, I've started to record high teens & twenties catches of cod, as can be seen above the're plenty of omissions, hopefully members will be able to help compile the records. The results will be free to share with other sites. It would be great if you had photo's and info such as venue and bait used.
