Me and Doggiemagnet decided on a session down Hwtchins today (try and take the pain of breaking my whisker 2 weeks ago)..Got to Hwtchins and it was way too rough,"oh well" the pier it is then......Gets to the pier and its the usual doggy bashing going on.....Anyway we sets up and Doggiemagnet gets a smalleyed of about 2 lb (piccie below) first cast,good start...Needless to say the doggies weren,t far behind.......After catching a few doggies I cast one in close with a half mackerel in close for a conger.....A few taps later and a little slack liner I strike and connect with a lunker.I,m thinking conger as it refuses to come in and starts to peel off my line and going hell for leather amongst the rocks...After what seems an age my arms are aching and it finally surfaces ITS A HUGE BASS HOW THE HELL DO I GET THIS IN?:g: When i started fishing 2 guys had a drop net each and they had gone and no one had a gaff .......Anyway I pulls it round to the steps and its only 6 feet way hooked in the bottom lip.:idea: So i shouts to Doggymagnet to get the butt section off my other rod, a nice big hook and some shockleader....After tying the hook to my rod butt with shock theres 4 of us looking at this bass praying...I hook it in the mouth but it pulls out:unsure: I,m thinking i cant lift it on the leader so tries again and up he comes:victory: It drops the scales round to 11lb 13oz my best fish ever....What a days fishing and thank god the rain held off.......Thanks to DOGGIEMAGNET and two other guys for your help...........................Thanks for all the messages lads as you all have said i dont think i,ll ever beat that and it goes some way to make up for the snapped whisker.......And yes i did take it home (who wouldn,t)and a few of my nieghbours are well chuffed...Might be in the Echo next week and i,ll be putting it in the sea angler.........Definately tking a gaff next time....
