Bet you need a beer or three after that effort.


See you in a couple of weeks.



Yes I did Frank :)  That big fish weighed 182 lbs.-13 stone in old money.  Over the years a lot of skate have been weighed and measured so there is a large weigh/size database.  All of this information has been put into a conversion chart for anglers to use without having to stress/hurt the fish by weighing them.

All anglers have to do is record the lenght and breadth of their fish and look up its weight on the conversion chart.  Here is the current record fish.
