January 2019 – Specimen Claims

Hi there!

            A great month with some brilliant specimens being recorded.

I shall be putting forward at the next delegates meeting a rise in one specimen size. It will not affect any fish that have already been recorded and it will only affect the boat section. Our specimen size for the boat caught Blue Shark stands at 62lbs. As all Sharks are now to be returned and our policy is to do just this. This fish is now eligible for the season’s awards. During the period when boat anglers target this fish, it would have an unfair advantage over other boat caught species. I will put forward a specimen weight of 90lb (40.860 kg).

Obviously I will keep you informed.

Will update you in a month.

Keith Reed. Fish Recorder.

And the Season award front runners so far…..

Well done chaps, cracking fish!
