Hull has a rich fishing heritage and was once one of the largest fishing ports in the country.
From whaling in the 1700s to the discovery of the silver pits in the mid-1800s, fishing was a huge part of Hull life, particularly in Hessle Road, right through until the late 1970s into the early 1980s.
Among all the millions of fish caught there was always a few monsters and bizarre creatures which would be landed.
Hull also has a healthy population of anglers, whether they are casting for miles off the East Yorkshire beaches or seeking out large carp and pike in the freshwater lakes and waterways.
