Friday morning arrived Pete & the other lads picked me up & off we went to Aberdeen to get the ferry to Shetland Very Happy  we arrived had a quick beer in the quarter deck pub for which the penalty was having the van driven on for us as you aren't allowed to drive on if you've had alcohol.Got our stuff we needed down to the cabins & off to the bar for a few beers beer  then restaurant for something to eat pig  more beers beer  to follow that then off below for some sleep Sleep  myself & bob were up at 5am sat watching the news & waiting for the restaurant to start serving breakfast which was great all you can eat  pig  as usual.Arrived in lerwick & away we went again after a quick call at ocean tackle store on the drive to the toft ulsta ferry only a short journey this time off & away again to culivoe to dump our clothes in the digs & then down to the harbour & onto the boat with skipper Kenny everyone excited at the prospect of catching something huge boy was it rough Rolling Eyes  I am never sea sick but it got me after a while I had to stop fishing & retire to the cabin I felt that bad pale  fell asleep & woke up feeling great again.By this time though the lads were hauling the fish out of the hold to be gutted so I didn't get chance to fish anymore Rolling Eyes we arrived back in culivoe boxed the fish lifted them off into big insulated stillages & covered them with ice then off to get changed ready for the pub beer which is a ten mile drive away Rolling Eyes we left there at 2.45am & it hadn't come dark at all.Sunday saw us on the boat for 9.30 & it was rougher than Saturday by far :help: but off we went anyway the fish were hard to find & when they did show on the finder they just wouldn't feed No  it was way too rough to get on the grounds we wanted so we had to seek sheltered spots to fish we all had cod but nothing huge & loads of small coalies so one good day one bad the biggest fish coalie or cod was 25lb really enjoyable weekend though & thanks to pete for organising & getting us there & back safely

Blimey a hard one to answer I have a 110 Litre cool box with wheels on luckily & two could just lift it into the van & it was just below half full after I had skinned the fillets at home four drawers were full to the brim with cod most fillets were two & a half to three pound.What you do is gut on the way in box & ice it fillet too if you want to save having to do it all the next day then the morning you're setting off back get a bed of ice in your cool box fillets on top then more ice & you're ready for off I have one of these things http://www.seabreeze-industries.com.au/products/Waeco-86-LITRE-Ice-Box-WCI85W-Wheels-MultiTool-631.htm http://oberon-shetland.sites3.bonlineapp.com/

Thanks for that that is some quantity of fish keep you going for a bit. Just looking at our kitchen waste bit that is 45lt so your box is over twice that size no wonder it took two to lift it. 
Thanks again for the info.cheers

Sorry if I upset people but picture no,10 and 12 of the deck covered in dead fish is a sad sight Shocked   I do understand that in some places the water pressure kills the fish bringing them up and casualties can't be helped but pictures like that do our hobby no good ,

You're not wrong about them being brought up from too deep to go back they were & where we fished shallow we did put them back we had more than enough but think on those fish are caught by a boat full of people not just one.If its going to upset folk I wont put the the pictures of the number of fish on next time I go sorry to anyone its upset

A problem with fishing in such deep water 230 plus (I think feet) is that fish embolise on the way up and most are unable to be returned. some fish can be "deflated" with a hypodermic needle in to the swim bladder, but not always easy in those conditions.
These Boys have gone to a great deal of trouble and expense to get there, the fish have been kept in good condition to feed the fishers families over a long period.
The distance, weather conditions and sheer hard work to make a catch like this means the resource has been barely touched compared to a commercial trawler on the same grounds. Per pound these fish have "earned" far more than a commercially caught cod.
Personally I love deep water fishing, and only once have I helped in a catch of (Groper) such as this, and as long as the fish are respected and not wasted, leave memories of a great days fishing.
