Birthday boy strikes it big!

As September's glorious autumn weather drew to a close, Steve and Mel decided to return to their favourite place on the south coast for a day in Lyme Regis inspired byTrip Advisor.

It was Steve's birthday and his wife Mel decided they would celebrate by spending the day in Lyme Regis doing the number one activities listed on Trip Advisor while not spending too much money. That meant lunch at The Whole Hog in Broad Street, a Lyme Regis mackerel fishing trip from the harbour with Harry May Boat Trips and a game of Crazy Golf in the gardens. A Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trip is on her bucket list but that's saved for next year.

Birthday boy strikes it bigFor Mel, this also meant crossing something else off her list. This was because she had always wanted to go mackerel fishing from Lyme Regis harbour but had never quite got round to it.

Five minutes before the end of the trip Steve suddenly yelled out that he had something big on the end of his mackerel line and hey presto this beautiful 51½ pound bass was landed with much fuss and panic.

Later Steve phoned to say his birthday supper was the best meal he'd had in all his 25 years of marriage!
