A mulleting trip on the River Taw threw up something extra special for Andrew Luxton after a specimen 8lb 1 ounce bass grabbed his bait.With six-pound line and light mullet gear, the scrap would have tested many adults, but the 11-year-old angler kept his cool and played the fish unaided until it was time for dad Stephen to step in with the net.The bass took bottom fished ragworm at a spot well upriver past the town centre.Not to be out done, dad also caught a fine specimen thin-lipped mullet of 4lb 3oz to make a good family double!
