Hi Whisper

Caught mine from a light spinning reel, with a lure bought from the local fishing shop and some good advice from a friend. I thought I'd caught a whale so I will be buying a bigger rod and reel. It tasted lovely.

Chers

Never underestimate the power of a SIB.

Having said that - I've had some interesting moments this summer landing mackerel with flailing hooks in the boat. I realise with a sib the odd puncture is inevitable if fishing but I'm trying to keep the 'how to patch a pvc tube' search delayed as long as poss.

Cheers

Yes Willk

Thanks for those words of wisdom. I have a very large plastic bucket for that purpose but it's still heart stopping stuff trying to get the blighters in and dispose of them as huimanely as poss.

Cheers

I carry a wee priest for the job - a bit of lead sheeting wrapped around a wooden handle - WHACK!

Well I tried to weigh him but the scales wouldn't go up that far!

Anybody in the "know" got any idea what he ways approx. I put him on a dinner dish to give you an idea of size. I do like sushi but not like that!

Yes, I think you're spot on -20 ounces looks about right.
