13432255_1693100320940430_4819761957723609058_nA  few breaks in the weather have allowed some boats to get out and the fishing has been very busy.

Mainly thornbacks, dogs and conger but the odd bass and the first of the smoothounds have put in a welcome appearance.



Hound numbers should increase and with a bit of luck they will hang around the bay into August.

Thornback numbers are very impressive with 30 fish between 2 anglers a realistic target.



On Friday 22nd of April we held our presentation evening at Burnham motor boat and sailing club followed by a good indian takeaway and a couple of beers. With the weather so poor last year a few competitions didn’t get fished the winners are listed below.

The final trophy is the “Boob of the Year” which was won by Martin Quinn. After catching a nice double figure cod Martin was so excited that in his haste to bait up and get back out there when he cast he forgot to hold onto his new rod and reel and threw it overboard!!

On the 19th June we fished our Thornback trophy with 12 anglers on 5 boats catching in excess of 100 rays. Unfortunately none were over the 10 lb minimum size so first place went to Andy Georgiou with a hound of 11lb 4oz, 2nd was John Quinn with a hound of 10lb 1oz and he also took 3rd with a doggie of 2lb 3oz. All hounds were measured and released.
