Boat League 08/10/2016

This years penultimate boat league match took place in Minehead on a glorious October day. As is typical of the fishing at this time of year October can be a difficult month for fishing as the summer fish are beginning to disappear and the winter fish are just starting to show.

Between us we managed nine different species with the best fish being several bull huss in the 8-10lb range. The very best fish fell to the rod of Mike Strange, a fine small eyed ray of 13lb.

The results were tallied up at the end of the day and Rick Crosby just managed to beat John Thompson into second place by a few points even after John demanded a recount. Steve Lodge took third place.

The final league match is on Sunday November 6th and as the results are so close this year there is still everything to play for as the league can be won by any of four anglers.
