Boat League 18/06/2016
The boat reports over the last few weeks were saying that the smoothounds were being caught in abundance in Minehead with one report of Mike Webber and his crew boating over 70, plus other fish between 5 anglers. This was not the case when 9 club members fished the June league match.
The fishing proved to be hard going all day, not only for us, but also the other boats sailing from Minehead that day.
We did however manage to boat 11 different species but not in the quantities you would expect to catch in June. The best specimen a smoothound of 13lb 8oz fell to Rick Crosby. Although there were several double figure smoothounds, bull huss, and rays caught.
Rick Crosby was the run away winner catching nine different species. Terry Giles came second and Steve Tanner third.
Next boat league match July 24th.
