I recently heard news on the grapevine of a rather large bass being landed down in the channel islands. In search of the news I contacted Mick Ward of Mr Fish Jersey.
In double quick time an email came back with information of the catch, which was indeed a new Jersey boat fishing Bass record. The fish, which weighed a massive16lb 1oz 8dr,Â apparently fell to a live sandeel fished on a boom. The lucky captor was local boat angler Lee Alan who said he instantly knew he had hooked a big one, and described the ensuing fight as something very special.
