19/03/12 A shift into very deep water behind Rathlin island produced this stunning large female skate estimated at 222lbs for Andrew Logan from the Carrick Fergus specimen hunters club.  This particular fish took off so fast that we had to throw off the anchor and go chasing her and within a little over 1 hour she was onboard.   The big fish took a whole dogfish for bait and was returned after a quick snap.
