    Good Cod !



    A British angler has hooked a world record 66lb cod in Norway big enough for 150 chip shop portions - and donated the catch to locals.

    He said it felt like he had hooked a London bus after he cast off from the shore in Bodo, Norway, and the huge fish took his herring bait.

    The 32-year-old spent 30 minutes struggling to reel in his catch which at one point swam off with 600ft of his fishing line.

    The catch weighed 66lb 8oz - 22lb heavier than the existing record for a shore-caught cod which had stood for nearly 50 years. The record fish, that was 4ft 9ins long and had a girth of nearly 3ft, is big enough to make about 150 chip shop portions.

    But the trip might end up leaving the father-of-two out of pocket as he promised to buy his wife a new Mini car (from 14700) if he caught a big fish.

    Hopefully the good lady will just be pleased that the trip was sucessful, that her husband had a good time with his mates and that having to make grand gesture promises in order to be let off the domestic leash for a week could be seen as domestic abuse if the boot were on the other foot.

    Oh for the freedom to just go for it and do it eh?

    Dont worry about me. Worry about why you're worried about me.

    Or begins a new romance.

    Further fishy forays of the topic (its been a really shitty wet and cold day off) have revealed that fish may be the latest P.U.A 'new thing'.

    http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/...ghts-on-tinder

    A new study finds that landing a fish might also help you land a date—or, at least, that fish aren’t a total turn off. Fishbrain, an angling info and social-media app, studied photos uploaded to the social-media dating app Tinder by Florida men, ages 18 to 35, and determined that 22 percent appeared alongside a fish in their profile picture. Fishbrain then took their research a step further and surveyed more than 1,000 sorority coeds about whether a fish in a Tinder profile picture makes a man seem more attractive.

    Well, unfortunately for anglers, 54 percent of the sorority sisters indicated that they prefer men without a fish in hand. That means, however, that roughly 460 of the women—still a substantial number, especially if you haven't had a date in a while—did indeed find men with fish more attractive than those without.

    And here’s the full breakdown of the “hottest catch" preferences:


    Great Northern Tilefish: 21%
    Sailfish: 18%
    African Pompano: 16%
    Red Grouper: 12%
    King Mackerel: 9%
    Amber Jack: 8%
    American Red Snapper: 8%
    Hog Fish: 5%
    Barracuda: 3%
    Juvenile Common Carp: <1%

    No Cod!



    And there's alsways one. Gotta be a bit different.

    Oh, oh and a girl...who has to out man the men in what she thinks is manly.


    from MattM37 wrote (a commenter on fieldandstream.com)

    It's all biology. The fish is food; the female is attracted to the male who provides it. Same reason that taking a girl out to dinner is the standard date. And in closing, I'm pleased to report that I have no idea what swipe rights are.
    Nice one Matt, I agree. I dont know what swiperites are either and it may a primitive appeal to biology but I wouldn't bet upon it as a lure for the modern madamoiselle. I think they maybe using the wrong bait.

    Ok, is he a bit too happy to have this fish or what is that just forward of the front anal fin?

    Well, all I can say is, the girlies can play at that game, too ...

    Maybe not at that level, though ...
