Amongst all the rants about owing a few quid on the mortgage, today I actually recieved a letter I liked. It was from Dr Ken Collins, who is the administrator of the UK shark tagging progamme. A female Tope I caught in May 2003 East of the Nab tower was re-caught 2nd May this year, west of La Rochelle in the Bay of Biscay. I would imagine it was rushing to get laid back in the solent somewhere. I dont have the details of how it was caught again, and I will find the details of what it weighed when I caught it later, but it was 20kg at re-capture. Fingers crossed it was a sports fisherman and it was released again, as I would love to see her in a couple of years. It proves a coulple of points. 1, Catch and release works 2, a wild fish can retain its liberty for four years despite the gauntlet of nets and anglers. Made my day anyhow..... If it carries on like its going, the big bucket of live prawns I just picked up off the reef are gonna get me a monster later on!
