Family outing results in a huge tub gurnard

posted in: Sea Angling, Sidebar | 0

Toby Basset and his family enjoyed a trip out of Ilfracombe on their family boat Lucy Ann. Pippa Bassett caught a stunning tub gurnard of 6lb a fish that is 2lb above the Angling Trust’s specimen rating for North Devon. Whilst only fishing occasionally Pippa undoubtedly has the angling equivalent of green fingers as on her last trip out last summer she boated a 51lb tope. The family also caught good numbers of mackerel, pollock to 6lb and several scad.
