Saltwater catches and tackle updates

208lb Shore Caught Common Skate

A Whitby Angling Supplies staff member recently caught a fantastic 208lb female skate whilst fishing from the shore on the Isle of Skye.

The skate took over and hour to land and it was caught on a Penn Affinity 16ft Beachcaster, Shimano Ultegra 14000XSC and 66lb Power Pro, the trace was Sakuma wire 50lb and hook a Sakuma 545 7/0 with half a fillet of fresh mackerel as bait.
