Bri­tish record wrasse

Anglers Mail - - Anglers - To Bruce, the worst sea­son he could re­mem­ber.

Over the page from Bruce, there was a bumper catch of im­pres­sive-look­ing sea fish, in­clud­ing a dou­ble-fig­ure bass caught by Pe­ter Baw­den, from Plym­stock. The prize cap­ture must surely have been the bal­lan wrasse tempted by beam­ing David Gabem, as it weighed 7 lb 13 lb oz 4 dr – a new Bri­tish record. The Bris­tol man caught it on a live sandeel, at Start Bay, in Devon.

Colour­ful catches

Two stun­ning fish graced page 2 this week, in colour, too! First up was a huge roach of 3 lb 2 oz, caught by Dorset car­pen­ter Paul Sloane, fish­ing an undis­closed stretch of the Dorset Stour. Lin­klegered sweet­corn on a size 12 hook to 3 lb line did the trick, earn­ing Paul the cov­eted Swan 3000 Weekly Win­ner award, along with a cheque for £40.
