Newsletter October and November 2015

 Fishing has certainly improved recently with the arrival of the cod with congers, thornbacks and dogs making up the bulk of catches, though as I write this, no boats have launched from Burnham for a fortnight due to excessive wind!



There are still a few bass around though numbers are dwindling but there is always a chance of a decent one while cod fishing.




12096596_532860016888711_140306714677689373_nCod started to show in the last week of September with father and son, John and Martin Quinn having a great days fishing landing a number of cod including 3 doubles to 14lb 2oz, the biggest falling to John.




12115946_1627449797514374_1228286977087903063_nAs we moved into October the cod were still showing well with Martin Quinn again amongst them with another double. Nigel Devey and Andy Georgiou also found a few cod with Andy landing a cracker at 15lb 2oz.



Fish of the Month for September was won by John Quinn with a cod of 14lb 2oz.


12088431_10208114493127001_6699289194268011626_nWe held 2 competitions in October both hampered slightly by wind.

The first one on 11th was won by James Devey with a cod of 4lb 2oz. There were a number of thornies, conger, dogs and whiting caught but none brought to the scales.

The second comp was the Tony Holly trophy fished as a best specimen on the 18th  and had a better forecast with 10 members and 5 guests taking part.

DSCN2757Winner with a fine huss of 10lb 4oz was Anthony Georgiou, second with a doggie of 2lb 8oz was Martin Quinn and third with another dog of 2lb 4oz was Andy Georgiou.

The cod pool was won by Anthony Georgiou with a cod of 5lb 14oz.


Fish of the month for October was Andy Georgiou with a cod of 15lb 2oz.


Four club boats were out on the 1st of November and steamed down to Watchet in the fog. Plenty of fish and a number of cod, the biggest 8lb 4oz again to Andy Georgiou and another nice one of 7lb to Fred Saxby.



No competitions yet in November but we do have one scheduled in for the 22nd with our AGM 3 days before.

If the wind is kind over the next month then fishing should be very good indeed with plenty of rays,  congers, dogs, whiting and hopefully a few more cod.
