Bristol male lands beast 96lb halibut in Norway

A Bristol angler has held a hulk halibut weighing 96lb 8oz (44kg) while on holiday in Norway.

Steve Ace, from Bristol, landed a 4ft (1.2m) far-reaching fish on a 10 day fishing outing nearby Saltstraumen Brygge.

Mr Ace pronounced he has “caught utterly a few large fish in a past” though when a “monster halibut” took a line it was “like unresolved on to a Transit van”.

His hulk locate is around 85lbs heavier than a normal halibut though still next a record that is about 413lbs (187kg).
