Weekend League 19/11/2016
Berrow beach was the venue for the final weekend league match for 2016.
The weather forcast was terrible with reports of Storm Angus heading our way and expected that very evening. Although this match was fished in torrential rain at least the wind held off until just after we all left the beach.
There was mixed results for those fishing with numerous bait robbing pin whiting being caught, plus 2 small codling, and 2 thornback rays.
John Lintern cemented his lead in the weekend league with yet another win with 59 points. Mike Tanner came second with 57 points.
- John Lintern, 4 (1 point Whiting) 1 (5 point Whiting) 1 (50 point Thornback)
- Mike Tanner, 7 (1 point Whiting) 1 (50 point Thornback) If only one of the whiting was a 5 pointer!
The flatfish pool was not won in this match and had rolled over from the previous match. As this was the last match of the year it was decided that it would be paid out on the longest round fish. John and Mike shared this as both rays measured 81cm, whats the chance of that happening!
Thanks to John for running the weekend league and to all who have supported it during the year. Hopefully we will see you all again next year. We have seen a significant increase in numbers attending this year and we hope this will continue in 2017.
First weekend league match for 2017:- Saturday March 4th, Lower Light, fishing 19.00-23.00.
