Magazine Lane 5th May.
A testing night at Magazine Lane, the first venue of the 2017 Junior Summer League for the Club's juniors. A strong easterly wind made the going tough but the fish were obliging and the juniors were soon catching. Within half an hour all the anglers had fish recorded on their match cards.
Pout and whiting were the most common species on the night, with Riley Price showing the way with double and treble shots from the off. Flora Munden was the first to add a different species, with a good dogfish of 53cm, weighing in at 1lb 4oz. Leo Chamberlain added a smoothhound of 40cm to the species tally shortly afterwards to break the constant cycle of pout and whiting.
The three solo anglers, Riley Price, Bradley Mapstone and Owen Strange were enjoying great sport by the midway point in the match, Riley was leading the way but Bradley and Owen were hot on his heels and swopped second and third positions between themselves with each fish landed.
Amongst the assisted anglers everything was fairly even but a great late run of fish including a dogfish of 55cm and an eel of 49cm pushed Robert Savin ahead of the pack leaving his brother Ollie and Leo Chamberlain to battle over second spot. Flora Munden's early run of fish had slowed up allowing her brother Max to creep ahead with a steady run of good sized pout late in the match.
All in all a great first match and really looking forward to seeing you all at Steamer Point on 9th June.
