Warrior 3 catches big Conger inshore -
Barker from Essex booked a ground fishing
trip and was fishing aboard Newhavens
Ocean Warrior 3 when he caught this Conger
of 66lb. He was fishing on an inshore mark
when he was lucky to get it up as he was
using 30lb line with a 15lb trace line and
a size 2.0 hook, while using a little bit
of squid bait!! It must have took at least
15 minutes to get the Conger up after a
real battle and taking a lot of line in
the shallow water and he was using such
light tackle. We weighed the Conger and
took a photo and returned it to sea alive.
I think it was a great achievement to get
this eel up on such light gear.
Matthews still holds the Newhaven port
record, which was caught on Ocean Warrior
2, back in August 2003. It weighed 103lb.
It was weighed at sea and returned back to
are a couple of good sized Cod and there
are also lots of Whiting around, they seem
to have got much bigger this week and have
them to over 2lb, which are a nice eating
We are still waiting for it to get colder
to hopefully see the bigger Cod showing
once the temperature drops.
