Boat League 24/07/2016

It’s amazing how variable the fishing can be for us boat anglers. On a day when you would expect to catch plenty of fish it was not to be, and in the first 4 hours only 11 fish were caught .We were beginning to think that the highlight of the day was going to be the hearty breakfast we had earlier! The second half of the day proved to be a lot better once we had moved to area’s near Lynton and Lynmouth and the Valley of the Rocks and fish started to come in abundance.

14 different species were boated altogether, which made it a very interesting day as 6 of us were in close contention for winning the competition. The best specimen for the day was a bass of 6lb 13oz falling to the rod of Steve Lodge.

Steve Lodge narrowly won with John Thompson and Mike Tanner following closely behind picking up the minor positions.

Next one August 6th sailing at 10.30.
