BANK ROD AV: 6.33 fish per angler

Sport: With a 180 degree switch in wind direction and much cooler temperatures i thought today was going to be a tough on but apparently the fish had other ideas on the bank Peter Atkinson had 5 fish in a short half day session, the main of his fish falling to a Dawsons olive fished on an intermediate line. Peter found most of his fish between Two Trees and the Quarry. Also on the bank Colin riley had 4 fish on a cats whisker. The biggest fish of the day also can from the bank. It fell to young angler Ben Godlonton who fished a damsel lure around the jetty to tempt his 5lb beauty.
From the boats Derek Moore and Mark Tyndall had 16 fish to the boat mainly to Marks Ozzy pattern another good catch was lee Cartmail who finished with 10 fish mainly from pulling lures. Top rod was Jonathan Turner who finished with a very creditable 14 fish, John fished a mixture of blobs and boobies on an intermediate line and found a lot of his fish off Hartleys and in Hollins Bay. With the predicted rise in temperatures and settled weather and wind this week its going to make next Sundays England qualifier a very interesting match. See you out there Pete
