BCFSA 2 man team boat competition 22/05/2016
Two teams represented WSMSAA in the first leg of three in the BCFSA 2 man boat competition at Minehead. Eight teams fished from two boats Osprey & Teddie Boy skippered by Steve & Mike Webber. John May also fished as an individual although the day didn’t go very well for him as he found he had left his sandwiches at home. Hunger turned John into a grumpy old git!
The teams from Weston were as follows:- WSMSAA (A) Steve Lodge & Mike Tanner, WSMSAA (B) Terry Giles & Rick Crosby.
Team A results:- Steve won on Teddie Boy and Mike came second aboard Osprey.
Team B results:- Terry was third on Teddie Boy and Rick was forth on Osprey.
After the first leg WSMSAA (A) are leading with Combe Martin in second place. WSMSAA (B) are third equal in the league.
Of the 16 different species caught there were some really nice sized bull huss in double figures, good sized smoothounds a blonde ray of about 13lb but the best fish a conger of 39lb 7oz fell to Pete Austin from Blackdown A.
