Bumper 27lb cod reeled in by Burnham-On-Sea fisherman

One of the heaviest cod to be caught in the Burnham-On-Sea area for almost ten years was reeled in by this fisherman on Sunday (January 29th).

Local boat angler Terry Garrett landed the bumper 27lb 2oz specimen after launching from Burnham beach in almost perfect conditions.

The fish was caught in the Bristol Channel using a cocktail of whole squid and mackerel.

Terry told "We have been having a better than average winter so far with the fishing, but to catch a specimen of this standard is a fish of a lifetime."
