HUSS ON THE LIST

Sea Angler (UK) - - YOUR FISH­ING -

Kyle Sib­bald is tick­ing off species from his wish list. Hav­ing this year caught a 29lb 9oz tope and a 11lb 2oz smooth­hound, he fished at Work­ing­ton pier in Cum­bria and added his first bull huss from the shore.

It fell to two sides of mack­erel on an up-and-over rig with size 3/0 Mus­tad Up­tide Vik­ing hooks. The chunky fish was not weighed, but Kyle reck­ons it was at least 10lb.

“I’m get­ting the tar­gets rat­tled off this year. Roll on the win­ter runs to Ar­broath, Mon­trose and the North East to get a dou­ble-fig­ure cod,” said the an­gler from Work­ing­ton.

Shortly after­wards he joined his pal Mark Scott (right) for a trip to a rock mark in south-west Scot­land where they caught six huss, in­clud­ing three dou­bles for Mark, and four rays.
