Fully Agree with you mate, best way to fish!!!!!
the picture with me in the water and the lighthouse in the background is taken at the Eddystone Lighthouse 11 miles off Plymouth. Amazing place but scary as hell with the tide . The pollack weighed just over 9lb I found him cruising the kelp in 16meters of water
The conger eel was shared amongst 10 of us, Weighed 22 lb and is the only one I've ever had, I much prefer to just watch them now
the last picture is of a 5lb pollack I had at the beginning of last season IMHO they are fantastic eating
