GEORDIE CATCHES 64LB COD
A North East angler caught a 64lb cod during a boat fishing session in northern Norway.
Using a Sidewinder lure, Tony Evans, of North Shields, bagged the big fish during a trip with a group of angling friends to Sandland Brygge.
The trip also produced other notable fish for the group, who are regular visitors to Norway. Steven Speirs, of East Howden, caught a 37lb cod (a personal best), 10lb wolf fish and 21lb coalfish.
John Reynolds, of Battle Hill, used a shad to catch a 34lb cod, while Brian Mead, from London, bagged a personal best cod of 28lb, and Darren Stevens caught a 35-pounder.
