13th July I had the day off so I dusted down the kayak for the first time this year and had a mooch about portland harbour - nothing doing, so in the evening i went to stone pier with the float rod for mackies or Gar - nothing there either

I had a small spinning rod for a bit of fun close in - target was wrasse or pout to save the blank -  what I pulled in was a total shock - felt like  dead weight - I assumed spider crab...... 

it was an in size lobster, caught on a manky mackerel strip on a ledgered size 6 hook........ 10 yards out from the pier over clean ground.......

Did he make a one way trip to a warm bath?

don't know what came over me but it went back - it was such an unexpected catch I didn't think it would do it justice to kill it!
