Big Bass on a Lure

posted in: Sea Angling, Sidebar | 0

Combe Martin SAC member Dan Spearman landed this fine lure caught bass weighing 11lb to set a new personal best. The lure was a Savage Gear 3-D Mullet. The fish was returned carefully to water. Dan also lost another large fish during the session.

From today  (July 1st) anglers are allowed to retain one bass per day for the table. I would suggest that all bass over 8lb are returned alive with bass between 3lb and 6lb making the best fish for the table. Many anglers will I am sure continue to practice catch and release for much of their fishing.
