    You need a small ladder of about 8ft or so to get from the wall down onto the rock armour below steveevo.

    It was a pegged match and I was drawn next to Ray, we both agreed to help each other if we got a decent fish - well after 10 minutes I could see Ray strike into fish and started pumping, he shouted over and I ran and started to fly down the acropods as fast as I could, I got in line with Rays line so hopefully the fish would come to where I was standing, about 30 yards out the fish went to ground but Ray manged to get it moving again, there was a slight swell lifting at the base so it's very difficult, I could see the line now coming very near but the fish had not surfaced, it was still down deep, at the base the fish moved to the right so I had to scurry over, I got hold of the leader and started to pull, I felt a fair weight and it kicking, I was expecting an 8lber or something but when I saw it I said "f@@k me it's massive!", and I really didn't want to be responsable for this beast!, it was damn hard to steer in to where I wanted it and of course it didn't want to play ball, at one time the line went slack and I shouted "It's off!" but luckily it wasn't, I was just about to do a Micheal Phelps when good old Pete Dunn appeared and managed to cuff it at the first attempt - absolutley ace, a prime pig that weighed just over 19lb, I'm sure photos to follow, Ray also had 3 smaller mops to weigh in a total of 28lb, needless to say he cleaned up - well done Ramrod

    Iain,s pretty much summed up what happened, just pleased he and Pete were there to assist me as it wasn't too well hooked. I only decided to go when I saw Iains post earlier and saw what was on telly :ugly: Got a couple of pics on my phone just after it was caught and will download them later. Cheers Ray.

    Well done Ray....... Me and my lad smelt the scent of a few big fish and had a chuck last night only to be rewarded with copious amounts of rockling.

    You can say that again Phil. Iain was guiding it in and Pete ran down at the speed of light and gilled it in a flash, no messing!
