How to catch smoothhound - part 2


Keith Gillett aka Ptolemy Flounder, an education consultant aged 56 from Orpington in Kent, returned to sea fishing last year after a 30 year break. Determined to get up to speed quickly, he is a regular client of Brighton fishing guide fishyrob. With the hound action hotting up on the West sussex beaches, Keith was keen to experience something that just wasn't part of the fishing calendar all those years ago.The session saw a three fish catch, with Keith also bitten off by a powerful fish after a 60 yard run. The common smooth-hound beats Keith's previous biggest fish comfortably, a 10lb cod from Deal pier in 1970. All the action, including the bite off, was captured on this video.
