In September 2014, whilst fishing an evening session at Ilfracombe Pier in North Devon, Mark Frith of Lakebed Leads caught a 43lb conger eel, setting a new Bristol Channel shore caught record! Mark caught this record breaking conger eel on a mackerel bait. A few days earlier Mark had lost a very big fish and had returned in search of the culprit. This amazing catch has now been shared and featured online in several places and in many angling publications, see some of the links below. Thank you very much to everyone who shared the story and featured it, with a special thanks to Rich, Ben and Wayne.
