HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL! A cracking way to round of the year yesterday with decent weather out in the channel for a go at the Pollack and they certainly obliged, plenty of low doubles with the best 2 fish going 16lb 12 oz for Les Renders and 13lb 8oz for Paul Thompson, Les also had the most with a cracking tally of 14 Pollack throughout the day. ...

The last day of the annual conger comp on the 30th was a little disappointing numbers wise, we pushed further off than the previous 2 days with better weather looking for bigger eels, the first wreck produced 27 eels up to 40lb which was the best of the day for Richard Howells, in about 2 hours fishing and we saw a much better average size than the previous 2 days with al fish between 20 and 40lb. At slack tide I decided to move to another larger wreck still in search of the bigger eels, anchoring proved difficult to start with with wind over tide but at the second attempt we were in position, it seemed to take an age to get going when the tide picked up and we ended up fishing a bit tight to the large wreck and struggling to pull the eels out, 5 more came to the boat up to 37lb plus 2 foul hooked eels which didn’t go on the tally, Richard Howells also had the most Eels on the day with 11. as the tide slackened I expected the fishing to improve but instead we were attacked by a hungry pack of Spurdogs. So overall Mike Spillers 58lb fish from day 1 is the winning eel, well done to Mike. ... See MoreSee Less

A great little event you have there Lewis, well done. Using those Hook Ups of Darren's certainly done the buisness on the first day anyway. A great comp and well run once again. Glad to be crowned champ.

Love the pictures,they really tell a story.
