Mega ling catch taken off North East mark

An arm aching tussle during an outing on the Stingray charter boat ended with Graham Napier landing a stunning 29lb 12oz ling.

The North East ace decided to enjoy a trip on the vessel with skipper Richard Roll at a popular hotspot on the River Tyne and managed to latch into the beast after it fell for a worm hookbait.

Another 23 specimens to 11lb 8oz were also landed by the duo during the outing, with several codling also making a welcome appearance.
