Honiton Sea Angling Club member Chris Grady landed a prize catch during a recent fishing trip off Beer, writes Mike Spiller.
He was aboard Cyril Newton's boat Blue Lady, out of Beer and, during the trip he landed a superb gurnard that was scaled at 7lb 6oz before it was photographed and returned to the sea.
It's unusual to see a tub gurnard of this size, but what is does suggest is that the work done to make the Lyme Bay Reserve a special protection area really is paying dividends!
