Fish of the month for February 2018 sponsored by Thyers Fishing Tackle of Highbridge, in conjunction with BBOSAA members.




Unusually we have a tie for FOM this month with 2 thornback rays of 10lb 11oz, caught by James Devey & Richard Saxby.

Sadly I don’t have a picture of James’s fish so we’ll have to make do with A picture of Dicky’s!

Well done lads, good fishing.

February’s News Letter 2018

By Richard Saxby


Another challenging month weather wise with very little activity from Burnham.

I have waited until the last minute to do this report as we had a competition on the 18th Feb and this
was the only time anyone made it afloat.

5 boats with 14 anglers contested the Fred Peters Trophy in what was a very tough match.

Only 4 anglers brought anything back to the scales with a number not even having a bite.

There was a tie for first place with James Devey and myself with thornies of 10lb 11oz and 69%.

Nigel Devey took third with another thornie of 10lb 6oz and 67%.

Pools was won with a codling of 5lb 2oz and 28% for Martin Quinn.

The next month should hopefully see the first of the bass back in the bay, which although they have to be returned it’s always nice to see one pop out of the murky water.

Codling should still be around and hopefully we will get a good spring run.
Fish of the month for January sponsored by Thyers Tackle of Highbridge was won by Nigel
Devey with a cod of 12lb 3oz and 68%.

The next club competition is the Wilf Dunstone Trophy on the 18th March.

Our next club meeting is on Thursday 15th
March at Burnham Motor Boat and Sailing Club on the sea front, pop along if you are interested in joining a friendly club.
