    Hi Chris, this link should be useful in answering your question for you. There's lots of info there. Things may have changed a bit since it was first posted but most of it should be current.

    One, that is a hell of a boat cod. Jeepers.

    Two, a 23lb'er from shore ain't too shabby either.

    But, three, and more impressive - that coal fish! That must have been a fight and a half.
    Didn't realise it was Smokey who had caught it. Mega-respect there.
    Think I would have kept it frozen. In a display case. Paying customers, at a £ a time. He could have retired!

    '90s seemed a good decade. Had seen that picture and thought it was 60's or 70's.

    According to the WEATHER MEN we are due an heatwave to co inside with the festival. 8) 8) 8) 8) What's the chances of that..? Hopefully if they are right then we shouldn't get any days cancelled.But the question is the big one WHICH SPIECES DO YOU ALL THINK WILL WIN IT... And to make it more interesting which boat d ya think will get the winner..... Happy forecasting.
