Been a while since we reported what with the summer competition being on and also me taking a well earned break to Cornwall with my partner.
The fishing has been so up and down this year it really is crazy! A few days at sea with some fairly good catches followed by some poor weather days and some poor catches. All in all, the same as ever then I guess!!
The summer competition went well for the Shy-Torque anglers with a good number of daily prize winners across the 3 week event. Brian Robinson fished with us and held the top place for nearly a fortnight with a lovely ling of 15lb 4oz. It was finally beaten by 2 heavier fish at the end. His fish did however win him an equal 3rd place prize of £375.00 so a very well done to him for that. A big congratulations to my mate Paul on Trot On for getting the winning fish again this year!
There have been a good number of species caught this last couple of weeks. The one that is missing for us this year sadly is the porbeagle. We have had them on on 4 occasions but each fish has slipped us!! Luck on the day I guess.
Some lovely additions to the Shy-Torque picture gallery here on CBUK so have a browse.
The September competition is approaching fast now with just over 2 weeks to go. We still have some room left so if you fancy a bash please give me a call on any of the contact numbers or drop me a mail.
The picture inset is my nephew Ben and some of his mates who fished with us today. They had a great days fishing gathering some 70 fish or so white fish with an additional 150 mackerel!! Best fish fell to Ben on the last drop. A lovely cod of 12lbs taken on a strip of fresh mackerel. Ben is 2nd from the right next to my son Adam.
Cheers and tight lines to one and all.
