A bass best at Watchet

Mark Hugh enjoyed one of his best ever sea fishing sessions when he landed this huge 12lb 2oz bass from a popular south-west mark.

The Taunton-based angler was fishing 20 metres off the harbour wall at Watchet in Somerset around three hours before high tide using half a fillet of mackerel when he struck into the fish, which is believed to be the biggest of the species caught from the area this year.
