  • 700lb in a six hour match

    Has anyone seen the back of AT this week with the I'm going for the world record - 700lb in six hours .... I don't think this is a particularly good advert for angling do you guys?

    Its no different to any match,each anglers objective is to catch as big a wieght as possible in a given period of time,cant see what diffence there is between finishing with 70 or700lb.
    Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

        Its like anywhere though, right person on the right peg and all that business, if you can catch 700lb in 6 hours then good on you. However to catch this amount of fish the lake is presumably stuffed with fish, fish welfare issues perhaps in question? Mawgan Porth in cornwall is like this although the fish are only small, even numpties like me can go down there and catch 200 fish in a 5 hour match without ever seeing the venue before!

            So whats your point!!!

            I can go to a local Canal and catch 200 small roach on a whip fast to hand to win a match how is it any different!!!

            Before you name and shame Venues, i fish Mawgan Porth a bit as i live around 1hour from the venue.
            FISH WELFARE is the owners MAIN priority, followed close by the angler having a good day out.
            The owner provides nets and enforces MANY rules so that her stock does not get damaged in any way shape or form & testament to this is the quality/condition of the fish down there.

            As to your comments about it being stuffed with fish, i would agree that it has a good head of fish in it, but Massive weights down there only happen when a poor match attendance is recorded..... and only then with the right angler is sat on the right peg and the conditions are right will a big weight happen!!!!
            People arrive at the venue (normally holiday anglers) in the height of the season when it fishing at its best and think it fishes the same day in day out down there, simply not true..... i have even blanked!!!!!

            Normal 25 - 30 peg matches down there are won with around the ton mark, is that any different to most venues????

            As of comments raised above about 700lb weights, if fish welfare is compromised then i agree it should not be allowed to heppen!!!

                    In my opinion catching 700lb of fish in 6 hours isn't fishing it hauling theres no art to it find a puddle full of fish and haul thats it

                      Bet he is goin to do it with a new secret flavour/bait ,that is goin into the shop's or summut.will it make a difference in the catch?not if it's carp soup.

                          Just an opinion, but I also agree with Flinty & yingtong.
                          If you catch a 700lb sea fish well done but 700lb of coarse fish in six hours..... why Personally I think I'd be bored after the first hour or so.
                          Although with regard to fish welfare surely that's more to do with how many fish are squeezed in to the average keepnet rather than how many you've caught, as there are plenty of people (not necessarily match anglers) who might only catch one lump all day but drag it through the water on heavy tackle like they want to get it water skiing.

                            wow this guy must be great , i wish i could tie some kind of artificial bait quite close to a great big hook place it in the water let a carp catch it then pull it back as quick as you can , he must be so close to an england call up, but then again proberbly no differance to places like cob house catcing lots of smaller carp at close range at least it boosts the ego of the anglers in question if nothing else

                              I have fished at Rockells a few times over the last 10 years, and it is a bit easy to say the least. Read my blog on Rockells here - http://www.talkangling.co.uk/upload/..._22_07_08.html
                              I reckon anyone could catch over 100lb there without much effort to be honest.
                              But all I say is whats the difference between using a whip and catching a roach a chuck than a shoal of carp??
