many thanks for the information, having now briefly researched the red bandfish, we should have weighed it in to claim boat record!!???? Any how it was returned to the depths safely & hopefully found its burrow home again.

Very common in Weymouth. Rarer round here but make good bass /cod bait. They live in the sand stickin their head out looking for food. Catch em with small feathers tipped with ragworm v close to bottom.
