Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th January 2012

Heron fished all day on Saturday skippered by Steve George with Chris Evans on board. Staying around Lilstock they took 13 codling to 7 1/2lbs with lots of thornies,
Doggies and strap congers providing plenty of sport.

Sunday saw more club boats out with Makita, Slipper 1 and Natalie Jane fishing
a short session over high tide and Vicoue coming out later and doing a long one down to low water and up.

Dicky and Fred Saxby on Natalie Jane had cod early on with Fred christening his birthday present, a new rod, with a 3-4lb codling, a happy birthday to him!
Fishing around Hinkley they had a few more codling to around 6lb, a few rays and whiting.

Slipper 1 with Craig Willis and me, also fishing Hinkley, started slowly but soon picked up half a dozen rays to 13lb, a conger estimated 12-15lb and a couple of whiting. We had 4 codling towards the end of the day biggest 3-4lb.

Star of the day though was Terry Garrett on Makita with John Chinn,
Terry had a cracking cod which was weighed on shore at 27lb 2oz !!
John did well to with a cod of 7lbs which snaffled one of his whiting!
They had plenty of rays and eels which made for a busy day in the North Channel.

Vicoue had a good day too fishing near Hinkley, with Pete Nicholson and Mark Bowden catching 18 cod up to 6lb and 8 thornback rays.

Pictures to follow (hopefully!)
