    ... Sure enough as I got it near the surface it was a small shark! I was a little concerned about bringing it into the boat as it clearly was not happy. But Johnny deftly removed it from the line while it was still outside the boat, phew! The next strike was Jaynes and she reeled it in with a little help as it seemed quite a weight. Sure enough it was a large Halibut, around 16lbs. A good size! By now the sea was quite rough and none of us was feeling too great, so we moved closer ...

Dylan, Mum and I had massive waffles with whipped cream and strawberries, Kitty had a bagel with Nutella ...
