Seal fights anglers for fish

Dartmouth-based fishing charter firm, Outlaw got more than it bargained for last weekend when it took some regulars on a trip on the Mid-Channel Wrecks in search of winter pollock.

Tim Smith from Dawlish hooked a fish but had to fight off a seal for his prize. The boat's owner describes what happened.

Tim had just retrieved the fish to mid-water when suddenly his rod dipped viciously right over the rail, he now appeared to have a real battle on his hands, slowly he gained on the fish until his pollock broke the surface some distance from the boat.

It was clear he had caught a pollock, but trailing right behind his catch was a beady pair of eyes and whiskers – a seal had decided to attack his fish on the way up and hung on to it right on to the bitter end.

Thankfully, only the fish was hooked and as he reeled in his pollock towards Outlaw, the seal stubbornly let go and disappeared back to the deep.

The same thing happened to two more anglers - and so, when the seal surfaced again, the skipper handed him a pollock, which he took and disappeared for the rest of the day, leaving the fishermen to fish in peace.

Plymouth Argyle will be looking for their third successive victory tomorrow.

The Pilgrims are at home to Cambridge United.

Argyle have moved back into the League two Play off positions but their manager John Sheridan says it's far too early to start talking about promotion.

I just concentrate on trying to do well be successful here. I want to win every game, that's the way I am.

Hopefully we can carry on winning because if we win games we'll be where we want to be at the end of the season so whether you think I'm dour or not I won't get carried away whether we win or lose. I try and stay positive and believe in what I'm doing.
