Ten pound monster bass landed by nine year old Anthony

Nine year old Anthony Vallis was on his first ever boat trip when he landed this wonderful bass weighing in at just over ten pounds. The lad was on holiday from Coventry with his parents when his dad Steve saw an advertisement for a three hour deep sea fishing trip out from Lyme Regis on Harry May's boat Marie F.

Anthony's sea bassAnthony admits that he gets most of his thrills from his XBox or from YouTube, but when he hooked this beast, it took him over ten minutes of very careful winding to get the fish to the surface. Said a delighted Anthony, "That was the hardest work I've done for a long time!"

Because of a nationwide ban on landing bass at the moment, the fish was carefully unhooked and returned to the deep. "I'm very happy that we put it back. It was truly beautiful", said Anthony.

If you would like to come out on a Harry May Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trip or a one hour Lyme Regis mackerel fishing trip from Lyme Regis harbour just phone Harry on 07974 753287.
