What a fish - hopefully i'll catch one quarter that size next week up at the Mull.
I'll get a real buzz when I catch a 1-2lbs bass, god knows that I would be like catching one like that....!!
looked at this post many times now.but still a jaw dropper looking at the pics.
doubtful, but still possible a bass that size could be caught from our coast.dare say baits the way to go.but imagine the srcap on a 9ft lure rod!! here's hoping lads!
You might find this of interest, caught just the other week down at Dungie - 19lb Bass
That was caught in the morning, a 23lb Cod was taken on the night tide!
yep the king of all fish just got bigger .thats a wonderful specimen . No doubt about it being at least 30 years old . Got' hooked on bass 'back in the 80s ,dr mike ladle (pr offesor of marine biology )did tests on a gill cover of a 7and a half pounder,and found the fish to be around 9 years old ,mint book well worth getting off ebay
god that was a intresting read :embarrass:
so how old was my 13lb-1oz fish, by his reconing :happy:
I don,t know Harry, but if it,s based on weight it must be nice when you can have a crap and lose a few years :laugh:
if i caught somthing like that it would certainly be a keeper
well done and enjoy but dont go overboard on the salt and vinegar
the bass i had after sending scales to a few ppl came back with to dates. first was 38 years and second around 30 to 35 years with the weight at just under 20lb
HA HA Just looked in mike ladle's book,7and a half pound gill cover, sixteen year old bass :embarrass:
I Have personally seen a number of Very large Bass in the sea off the coast of Portugal. Though Bass of this size are generally nomadic.
I think there are other fish out there to beat this record. As for ( would I kill a fish of this size) Absolutely! Lads and lasses of Whitby, and the UK for that matter!
If you caught a UK Record COD say of about 70lb. Would you put this fish back?????? I very much doubt it. :
