Big ray boosts Cornish best

A personal best thornback ray of 12lb 12oz was the highlight of a late evening session for Somerset angler Glen Cornish.

The Taunton angler caught the fish from a Minhead beach using a pulley rig armed with 7/0 hooks and baited with whole unwashed squid and half the side of a bluey.

“It’s fish like this that make it all worthwhile,” said Glen, who returned the fish unharmed.
