Hi Beefcake,

My fish of a lifetime is a 100lb+ Conger caught out of Mudeford in August last year. The fish was over 8ft long and the weight was estimated by the skipper before it was returned. I used a Daiwa TDXB 2050 rod coupled with a Shimano TLD 20 reel with 50lb Whiplash. The bait was a Mackerel flapper.

I have some pictures and if someone will explain how to exhibit them on the Forum I will do so after Christmas. My computer skills are much to be desired as are my fishing skills some of the time.

Any advice on how to put pictures on the Forum would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanking you in anticipation

Drew

My biggest fish to date, was also my first conger, 32lb and boy did she put up a fight, almost an hour from strike to shore!

For bait I used fresh whiting, so fresh it was off one hook onto the other.

It was at the bottom of Jennycliff, Plymouth in the middle of the night in between eating the fresh bait cooked on an open fire.

After hooking her, I then had to somehow get her lifted 20feet ish from the water to the cliffedge.

Those were the days, shortly after that however, I became disabled and after a break of almost 12 years I'm back at the game only this time in Scotland.

tight lines etc etc

17lb conger from Aberthaw.

Luckily there were 3 anglers nearby who helped my get it up onto the ledges after a good 20 minute fight. It took the 4 of us another 20 minutes to get the damn thing weighed and back in the water !!!!!!

It was hissing and biting everything :D

Had it on half a peeler crab, single 2/0 hook and 15lb amnesia hooklengths........"I should be so lucky, lucky lucky lucky" :D
