    Steve-well done on the fish mate. That is a once in a lifetime achievement. There is no way i would have returned it. It would have been filleted and fed the family.

    Have just registered so's I can put my two penn'orth in.

    On the subject of bass, according to the World Sea Fishing website 'Very large adult fish are true cannibals and occasionally contain small school bass, also whiting, eels, pipefish etc.'

    As I understand it, this can be the case with many predatory fish i.e. pike.

    So by my reckoning you've done a favour to the smaller bass. You should be wholeheartedly commended, not slated.

    Tight Lines.

    Got to also remember that that bass has probably spawned thousands of other bass already in its lifetime.
    So which is best to kill? a 19lber or a 5lber.....??? the 19lber if you ask me.

    I wonder how many "RECORD" bass have been caught in trawling nets,i dont suppose them lads release them,i would sooner a lad out fishjng for pleasure and love of the sport catch such a specimen,than it ending up being auctioned on the dock sides in a ice box bound for some poxy plush hotel (probably down south) for mega bucks,well done mate wish it had been on the end of my rod! Isn't this the kind of catch we all dream about if not why bother? :confused:

    The bass is on show at the Natural History Museum in London. When I was last in the Smoke I decided to go and see it. I couldn't find where it was on display so asked one of the guides where the record bass was kept. I was told to try the Science museum. Turns out she thought I wanted to see a bus :no:. "The bass ain't no bus, although it's probably as big as one", I chortled.

    One that size yes. Although obviously its not as impressive as the 2 leviathans of the deep you pulled out at Barrow.

    It is still free entry, but I must point out that I didn't get to see it as nobody knew where it was on display - mabe they've taken it off display because apparently fish doesn't last too long even if it has been stuffed. Heat and lights dry it out
