Bumper bass reeled in by angler from Burnham-On-Sea jetty

Bass caught on Burnham jetty

This bumper-sized bass was caught by an angler on Burnham-On-Sea's jetty on Wednesday evening (July 2nd).

Michelle Mewdell reeled in the 6lb 8oz catch on the falling tide using a rod and line from the middle of the jetty.

The fish is among the biggest bass caught from the beach this season - and Michelle, who is from Bristol, told "It's a personal best for me, so I'm really chuffed. It was quite a job to reel it in and several local fishermen were watching on quite enviously!"
