22lb 10oz cod reeled in by fisherman in sea off Burnham
A massive 22lb 10oz cod has been landed in the sea off Burnham-On-Sea
by a local fisherman.
Steven George from Bridgwater, reeled in the monster catch while
on his boat Heron almost three miles from Burnham during December.
Boat Owners Sea Angling Association member said: "He
put up quite a fight and it took 15 minutes to get the fish on
to the boat. I used half a squid as bait to catch him."
It's one of several large cod to be caught in the waters around
Burnham in recent months, as first reported
here by Burnham-On-Sea.com.
