Fishing from RIBs
I fish regularly from my RIB and have, indeed, caught conger, ling and shark ( tope ) amongst other species. So as to obviate the need to board larger and potentially dangerous species, I have made a heavy duty disgorger out of some broom handle and part of an old pram. I find that I can now unhook such fish from the side single handedly.
Out of interest I have set up a system for longlining from my rib. It is hard work though.
Should Geo. wish details on the disgorger, then PM me.
