Cod to over 20lb taken from inshore marks

You don't need to motor miles offshore to distant wrecks to catch big cod, as Sholto Heaton proved when he tempted this sensational 21lb specimen from a small broken wreck lying in Falmouth Bay off the Cornish coast.

Sholto worked an artificial lure close to the wreckage to get the all-important bite while fishing with his friend Dave Taylor aboard his mate's private boat.

The pals toom plenty of other fish during their action-packed session, including more cod, along with numbers of pollack and ling.
