Retired League 9/12/2016
The last retired league match of 2016 took place on Clevedon pier on a lovely calm warm day. Although the fishing was hard going with fish being difficult to find, a few nice whiting were caught the best of these falling to the rod of Mike Fryer a fish of 34cm weighing 13oz. Small whiting and small codling made up most of the catches but Mike Dunn managed to take a conger of 91cm on his last cast.
Mike Fryer seemed to have the right bait and method as he led throughout the competition with 3 good whiting plus a couple of smaller fish giving him a total of 106cm. Unfortunately for Mike, another Mike, Mike Dunn pipped him at the post with his conger plus 2 small codling for 120cm. John Beer took third place with 2 whiting and a codling for 46cm.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank John May for organising and running the retired league and I know he will be looking forward to seeing you all again in 2017.
