Top chef Michael Roux Jr lands 131lb blue shark

World famous chef Michel Roux Jr proved that he’s also an accomplished angler when he caught his biggest ever shark - this impressive 131lb ‘blue’.

Michel, who judges the hit BBC two series Masterchef  ‘The Professionals’, was part of a group of UK anglers that shared the capture of 23 blue shark while aboard Nick O’Sullivans Celtic Wildcat, out of Milford Haven, Wales.

He boated the two biggest predators, with a 125lb specimen accompanying his new personal best, which was caught using a whole mackerel.

“Michel is a really great angler as he grew up going fishing with his father and he was a real pleasure to share such a fantastic day’s fishing with him and the rest of the guys,” trip organiser Mark Ward told Angling Times.
