    I had already thought of that when I saw this - 4 of us are off to Cornwall this weekend to try for a shark. Ken, Lozz, Richi and myself.

    A trip from Whitby would be ideal....hint.

    I am also interested in hearing about th emissed halibut......follow to the surface?/ Or shook the hook out?

    The missed halibut was nothing to do with us :no:

    I gather it was another charter boat out the same day as us (Monday 20th July) and they got a big halibut to the top but couldn't get the gaff in to it to bring it aboard. After a number of failed attempts to gaff, the fish broke free apparently. That's as much as I know.

    John Wilcox who was crewing on Monday with me told me about a 10lb halibut he caught a few days earlier. He was fishing a shad and had wound it half way up to the surface when he had a savage 'take' followed by quite a tussle. This turned out to be a halibut foul hooked in the tail!! I would never have imagined foul hooking anything on a shad - a pirk yes, but a single hooked shad - That's some luck!

    there seems to be a very interesting story unfolding halibut wise..looks like only a matter of time before a 'biggie' is successfully boated!

    Here are some vids of the trip.

    This was the first hook up of the day - typical porgy fight; lose some line, win some back again.

    Whitby Shark 1

    This was the second of the day and taken over from "Mystic Girl" John after we had a double take. You can see the American Snap float which snaps shut when the line tightens, then slides along the line, floating on the surface. Unfortunately it got taffled up, so John Wilcox unclipped it for me. The shark took it's first dive when it neared the boat.

    Whitby Shark 2 - 20th July 2009

    More of the same shark - had to take my fleece off as I was getting hot!!

    Whitby Shark 2(a)

    Finally, skipper Rich with the 'pup'. Is it still on Rupe??? Doh!

    It was suppose to be a secret Simon, just in case something went disastrously wrong and one of us lost a limb or something, if one sinks it teeth into the Dorado I will have a tantrum :cheesy:

    Fantastic videos Rupert, all of your posts have really spurred us on. Talk to you in morning....
