Angler fish on final day

Fred MacDonald polished off a fantastic three month fishing break in Cornwall by landing this strange looking angler fish on his final day at sea.

The Bradford rod originally planned to catch a shark, bass and conger while aboard Andy Howell’s 16ft ‘Obsession’ out of Falmouth and although he managed to land all three, including a 75lb blue shark, the keen angler then went on a mini species hunt over the remaining weeks of his stay, catching a further 28 species, along with this 36lb 1oz angler.

Skipper Andy Howell said: “the fishing has been excellent this year with so many exotic species around.”
