Win-Sum League Competition17th April.

On Wednesday 17th April the club held its 2nd Win-Sum League competitiom held on Avon Beach and 15 club members took part. The weather was again perfect with a slight easterly wind, but sadly the fishing was slow, and what fish were caught consisted of whiting, conger eel, pouting, bass and rockling.
The best flat fish pool was not won so this is a double rollover on the next competition. The best round fish pool was won with a conger eel of 63cm caught by Chris Ellis. Only edible fish are retained. All other fish are gently measured and returned to the sea straight away.

1st Luke Woodford 182cm, 2nd Malcolm Stote 81cm, 3rd Ben Daniel 70cm, 4th Mark Duncan 64cm, 5th Glyn Savin 28cm, 6th Paul Watson 24cm,

Fishing this year proved much more difficult than in previous years. 27 anglers took part in the league competitions fishing in 3 zones on each competition. At the halfway point there was a constant battle for top spot between 7 anglers.
