Mighty 91lb cod is the biggest of the season

The biggest cod of the season has been landed in the form of this record shaking 91lb specimen.

The monster fish was caught by Danish angler Tommy Neumann from the Norwegian resort of Soroya and follows the recent capture of numerous 70lb-plus fish from the region, including an 83lber boated by European angler Peter Fors, reported in the Angling Times just two weeks ago. Tommy tempted the giant skrei version of the species using a homemade jig lure while fishing with Danish squad, Team Hvidovre but despite being the fish of a lifetime, it is still some way short of the World record cod of 104lb, banked by German angler Michael Eisele, also off Soroya last year.
