Sea Angling in Orkney 1968 final part 3

by David Proudfoot

The halibut weighed 58.5 lbs, not 62 lbs as in Julian Strange’s script. And the bait was a whole squid, not a cuttlefish! My halibut was the second heaviest landed in British waters at the time – the record was another Orkney fish of 70 lbs from Rackwick Bay, Hoy in 1967, captured byJack Scott of Stromness, the same day as I took a new Scottish Record ling of 33 lbs.
