Still the Rays are coming in. Remember that there is an increase in the specimen sizes of three of these species starting next year (our year starts on the 1st of December), there is also a decrease in the Spotted Ray size.
Have a quick look at the National Claims, congratulations must go to Chris Buxton of Seaswest SAC for his shore caught Tope, this has been put forward for a new British Record.
Can I also say a big thank you, and a warm welcome to our new Fish Of The Month Sponsors, Veals Mail Order.
The next lot of notes that I will be issuing will be at the AGM where all the winners of our trophies will be available. Will be in touch with you all then.
Keith Reed, Fish Recorder.
Congratulations to Jamie Sargeant from Channel Anglers SAC. Jamie had no less than 9 Specimen claims this month, including 2 Gold Specimens! the best of which was a 17lb7oz Blonde Ray from Barry in South Wales. Well done Jamie, a worth winner of the VMO Sponsored Fish Of The Month.
