Turkey of the Month went to Scott Westbury again. Young Christopher yet again tells us the story of how his father attempted to kill an eel in the boat.First ignoring his rod that had something on. Then trying to stab the eel, then attempting to cut the eel's head off with a blunt knife, all to retrieve the hook.Whilst the poor eel is curling itself into a knot. Scott it is far easier to just cut the line and put on a new hook.Also who felt a bit seasick.
