Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

SI­MON House re­alised a life­long dream to catch a shark when he boated this mon­ster blue.

The Dorset an­gler hooked the es­ti­mated 121lb 8oz spec­i­men aboard Nigel Hodge’s Wave Chief­tain out of Fal­mouth, Corn­wall

Fish­ing with shark ex­pert David Turner and four friends, Si­mon tempted the gi­ant preda­tor on a whit­ing hook­bait fished flap­per-style around 130ft deep. The fish was mea­sured and then re­leased.
