    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!

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

    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. :eek: Would you put this fish back?????? I very much doubt it. ::)
