    The Tunny club was opposite the Newcastle packet. Lorenzo Said that the majority of fish they caught should not have been registered as an angling catch "Due to unsporting methods employed". Typical Scarborough I must add :wink:.

    Hi Rupert,

    There is interesting mention of the north sea porbeagle population, which, would you believe it, are described as a pest fish.

    Didn't one of the Tuna Records not stand because they included the weight of the rope, on which it was hung as they weighed it?

    Loved the climmer footage. I never realised that any existed, only old photo's. How things have changed since then. He would recieve death threats and have petrol poured through his letterbox (if he had one) for squaring two birds up like that nowadays.

    have the herring shoals recovered enough to attract the monsters back i wonder?
    would take a brave man and a bloody fast boat to find out i guess! would'nt it be awesome to see such fish caught off our glorious coast once more.
