March’s News Letter 2017

By Richard Saxby



The last month has been a repeat of the previous one, even more NW winds keeping boats on their drives.

Not a single boat has made it out from Burnham and I have had to resort to piking to get my fishing fix.

I did manage a wrecking trip on Wild Frontier from Weymouth along with my brother and father.

Fishing wasn’t easy but we found enough pollack in the end up to 14lbs.


There have been reports of increasing numbers of codling from the beaches and from boats from other ports when they can get out so the prospects for the next month look promising.

Fish of the month sponsored by Thyers Tackle of Highbridge for February went unclaimed as nothing was weighed in for the first time in a couple of years.

April is a busy month with two competitions, the Vicoue Trophy on the 9th and the Ray Farthing trophy on the 23rd.

There is no club meeting in April but we do have our presentation evening on Friday 21st  at Burnham Motor Boat and Sailing Club on the sea front followed by a curry.
