Hi Guys,

It was such a lovely evening I went to the Pebble Beach, Barry, for a couple of casts before the sun went down. 2nd cast produced this beauty! :clap2: I didn`t know who was pulling the hardest it or me. I didn`t know if it was going to pull me in, or if I was going to pull it out! Well I won in the end but it took me about 50 yards down the beach from where I hooked it! We weighed the Conger and the scales quickly went to 30lb which was their limit. So really not sure the weight although assume it must be low 30`s.

Caught at distance on Sandeel (from that guy I met in Aberkenfig! :)) 2/0 Kamasan, 50lb Okama hooklength, 60lb Shock, 30lb Braid.
Fish returned fit and healthy!

Tight lines,
Rich

Top man. Would be good to see it in The Sea Angler.:clap3: :clap3: :clap3:

I remember gaffing one like that from the same venue in an Echo Seamaster/Conger championship for an angler next to me. (about 15 years ago)I said he had won the comp easily,but he said he was pleasure fishing and not in the comp!!:unsure: :uhuh: I think the first prize was £1000 even back then!:doh:
