Whitbourne cod fisher hoping for another big one after monster catch on last trip

Hilda Whalen says she finally feels good enough to get back on the water after a battle with cancer and hopes she can replicate her last catch. Whalen caught a 30-kilogram, (66lb.) six-foot cod in Trinity Bay during her last fishing trip in 2018. “At the time I didn’t think it was a big thing. A friend of mine was holding up a cod fish, and I just whacked off the picture to him saying ‘Try to hold this one up with one hand!” “Someone else said, ‘did you ever think of throwing it back?’ … I said no. What Newfie would throw that back in the water after the cod moratorium?” >click to read< 17:45
