Angler Eats Huge Sea Bass Record Breaker

November 7, 2011 by staff 

Angler Eats Huge Sea Bass Record Breaker, GUTTED angler Kurt Price caught and then ate a huge fish – only to later realise it was a record-breaker.
Kurt, 25, was delighted with the monster sea bass he reeled in while fishing from the shore but never thought it was big enough to be a record.

It was only after he had filleted, cooked and ate it that he researched the record books and realised his catch would have been the biggest of its kind.

The current record for a shore-caught sea bass is 19lb 11oz. Kurt and many fishing experts who have seen the photo of it reckon his one was easily bigger than 20lb.

But he can never be credited with the title because he failed to weigh the fish at the time – and he has since eaten the evidence.

Kurt and friend Kevin Lowcher had been on a weekend fishing trip to Tenby, south west Wales, when he hooked the monster catch.

The pair took it back to the caravan where they were staying and cooked two chunky fillets in thyme, coriander and lemon before eating them with new potatoes and vegetables.
