By me reckoning that's a touch over 2lb, bloody nice fish that! Well done!

Looks like there's a few coming out up and down the coast this summer. If the weather stays as it is today there might be a few more showing too.

Nice one, good size at 43 as mentioned must be on the 2lb mark.
Favorite fish for me the Sole, had plenty this year in the 1lb 1.5lb range, but most have moved off the venues around the Thames now.
When do they start showing in your area, and do you find they like the farmed rag better than lug as they do in the Thames.

they started showing late may early june round here...and earlier in season they were taking lug and rag cocktails, 2 weeks ago they prefered lug and this last week or so they have been coming on rag and leaving the lug alone!!!
