Whitby Halibut Record Smashed

Fishing from Paul Eddon’s boat Trot On, Peter Stricksen hooked and landed a specimen Halibut of 56lb 12 oz. The fish beats the previous port record of 50lb. Dated June 7th 2011

Whitby regular Peter said “the fish took a squid bait dragged along the bottem. At first I thought I had caught the bottem but soon I realised I had hooked something big as it started stripping line from my reel.”

Trot on Skipper Paul Eddon initially thought they had hooked into a seal, but as the fish broke surface after a 25 minute scrap it was clear this was a very special fish indeed.
