February 2018 – Specimen Claims

Hi there!
The Fish Of The Month competition has now ended after 27 years. It was introduced in 1991, and is now superseded by the Seasons award. Four seasons, four fish per year from each section, boat and shore. The boat section to include the conservation entries. The winners will be awarded an embroidered badge depicting their achievement and also an acknowledgment from the sponsors. I feel sure that all participants will welcome this, and the winners will be proud to show off their badge on their T shirt, anorak or sweater.
In closing, I would like to thank the past sponsors of the Fish Of The Month, Silstar, DAM, Shimano, Cox and Rawle, Just Tackle and Collins.
Will update you all in a month,
Keith Reed – Fish Recorder.
Two new BCFSA records this month, from the shore, Simon Whitcombe of Clevedon Pier SAC with a 3lb3oz Haddock. From the boat, James Thomas of Bristol Channel Charter Boats with a huge 24lb4oz Blonde Ray. Well done chaps!
This months VMO Fish Of The Month winner is Paul Lorrimore of Bristol Channel Charter Boats with a fine 6lb Haddock from a boat out of Minehead. Well Done Paul!
