Using multiple hook rigs can pose the odd problem. Popular and highly effective our two hook muppet rig for Holyhead deep snared it’s biggest catch yesterday, skipper Gethyn.
With a 27lb tope on one hook, the tope was lifted into the boat, the tope naturally thrashed about, a little peeved at its circumstances. The flaying hook embedding itself into his wrist.
No real drama, the hook was cut away and pushed through. Job done. The tope, a first for its capture, also released after a quick photograph.
