Record Catches at St Abbs

This post will be updated as I find news of other record catches.


For a few years in the 1880s William Wilson of 3 Upper Row held the (local) record for the largest catch of fish in any one boat, 126 crans, caught off the Farne Islands and landed in Eyemouth. His record was beaten in 1887. 

May 1940

A lobster caught at St Abbs by Mr P Cormack, of the motor boat Beaver, weighing 9½ lbs, was bought by Mr Affleck, fish merchant of Burnmouth.
