OUT OF THE BLUE: fin-tastic 70lb catch for lo­cal cou­ple

The Oban Times - - News -

AN ARD­CHAT­TAN fa­ther and daugh­ter had a jaw- drop­ping mo­ment on a re­cent fish­ing trip, but thank­fully they didn’t drop ‘Jaws’, af­ter catch­ing the blue shark.

Iona Camp­bell and dad Ron­nie, who runs the fish­ing char­ter busi­ness, Fish N Trips in Bon­awe, net­ted the blue shark dur­ing a trip with a fam­ily friend, 40 miles from the coast of Pem­broke in Wales last month.

Iona, who works as an oph­thalmic dis­penser in Oban, said: ‘This was my sec­ond time shark fish­ing and it was just as amaz­ing as the first. I love the mo­ment you can see the light re­flect­ing off their stom­achs as they come to the sur­face. They are beau­ti­ful crea­tures and it was lovely see­ing them.

We caught around 20 sharks in to­tal, with the one in the pic­ture the big­gest, which was about 70lbs.’

The sharks caught on the trip by Ron­nie and Iona were all re­leased af­ter­wards.
