Hi,
Has anyone heard of or caught a stingray out of Penarth? im asking because i think we hooked one yesterday! it was charcoal to black coloured on top and white underneath, it must of been 35lb plus. unfortunately it snapped off at the side of the boat before we could land it.
regards Mark

used to catch them often this time of the year, they must come inshore to lay their purses, had a couple of 50lbs off aberthaw, also caught one near castle rock of the knap, some silly buggers still mutilate them:uhuh:

Two stingers that I've seen were both caught at Porthkerry at high water in July 1976,on 2 consecutive days,neither caught by me unfortunately.My mate's one weighed 21lb on crab and the one caught the next day weighed 30lb caught on squid by a cockney from Butlins.

Seen one of 46lb caught from Sully Bay on the boat. ONLY time I have heard a guy beg for the fish to be landed as he was so knackered.


LUCKY Bugger caught a Bass of 10lb + a couple of casts later.
