Bristol Channel cod boated at 31lb 5oz

This huge 31lb 5oz cod was caught by Hayden Scamp from a popular North Somerset sea fishing mark.

The Gloucestershire-based rod was enjoying a trip aboard Shaun Anning’s charter boat, ‘Seafire’ when the specimen took his frozen black lug and squid bait from a spot near Watchet in the Bristol Channel. The fish followed a number of big cod captures recorded on Seafire this winter including a 22lb 8oz specimen landed by Chippenham rod Lewis Webster recently.
