Whitby man lands potential record biggest fish on Skye An angler from Whitby has landed what could be the largest fish caught yet off Britain's shores while he was fishing on the Isle of Skye.
Dan Bennett, who was on a trip with Whitby Bass Club, took an hour to land the common skate in Kilmalaug Bay.
The fish was 88.25in (224.15cm) long and 66.75in (169.54cm) wide, with an estimated weight of 208lb (94kg).
Because it was not weighed at the scene it is likely to be listed as an unofficial British record.
The fish was returned to sea alive.
The weight of the skate was calculated from its dimensions by the Shark Trust.
Previously, the largest fish caught from British shores was a 159lb (72kg) skate reeled in on the Isle of Lewis in 1994.
In a statement on the Whitby Sea Anglers website, the bass club said Mr Bennett and his fellow members were local celebrities on Skye.
However, Mr Bennett said his girlfriend, Philippa, was less impressed.
He said: "My partner is not really that interested, but she's proud of me nonetheless.
"I think people outside the angling world find it harder to see how much of a feat this is."
29th July 2014  Today I am not sure if I will be adding 4 Fisheries to the South Yorkshire Fisheries list due to important machine maintenance that I have to do first. I did manage to add 4 yesterday. If all goes according to plan I will try to research in a hour or two, but cannot guarantee having any listed this evening. For anyone interested in making Boilies, there are a couple of New Videos about making them. Also for anyone who has not been on this website for a while, the Bill Dance videos were also fixed.

I have checked the Email, and will do another check later on the Email.






28th July 2014  Today I will be adding 4 Fisheries to the South Yorkshire Fisheries list. I am currently doing machine maintenance on 2 of my other machines, while the second one is still out of action for a few hours. It will be many days before that is sorted out fully. I am hoping it will be able to do many tasks with a small drive to run windows, so that the other drives are accesable. I should have the Fisheries listed around midnight UK time.

I have checked the Email, and will do another check later on the Email.












The Online Shop now has approx' 2000 page views per day, so that is looking good. I will find some more stuff to put in the Online Store soon, but really it would be better if you guys let me know what sort of things you are after. At present it has a approx':815 items for sale. It has been repaired by me, and security upgraded.


1st August 2012: I have checked the sites analytics, and can no longer give you statistics on visitors. Because Google made their software worse.
158 Countries have visited this website, from now it will be compiled using Flagcounter at the bottom of the page.


Have you got any pictures to do with fishing, you would like to upload to the site? They do not have to be right up to date, as long as you know what date roughly you caught them, then that will be ok. Norfolk Fishing Network not only supports Norfolk, but any other place in the World also now. If you don't see your County or Country in the picture Archive, send me a picture with the details of the fishery where you caught your fish, and if caught outside the UK, your Country, County/Province/area; with details of the fish, weight, type? If possible what bait and setup you used. In return I will make a section for your Country, right down to your town/city.
