After a flat calm Saturday the forecast for the last competition was not good, but fishable. That proved to be the case, a northwest force 4+ plagued us all day.
With 4 teams really close together on the table, a good result could win it, and a bad one lose it!
The draw took place at 10:30am and the boats were away by 11.
It was a slow wet trip, into the wind down to Porlock bay. There the sea was a bit better, but fishing was difficult all day with a yawing boat.
Nevertheless it was not long before fish were coming in!
Bonus fish for the day were Smoothound, 3 were taken on Osprey by Dave, John and Craig. 7 were taken on Teddie Boy by Mark, Nathan and Rick, with double shots by Steve and Pete.
Heaviest fish on Osprey was a 25lb Conger by Nigel Lloyd, and on Teddie Boy it was a 19lb8oz Conger for Damian.
Most species on Osprey was a tie between Craig Willis and Terry Giles with 7. On Teddie Boy Steve Lodge managed a credible 9. Osprey finished with 11 species, Teddie Boy 14.
Highest individual points on Teddie Boy was Steve Lodge with 730, and on Osprey it was a tie between John May and Craig Willis with 502 points.
Top teams on the day were WSM A with 16 points, WSM B with 13 points, and Charter Boat A with 10 points.
That concludes this years Charter Boat Contest, and here are the results:
Well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to Weston B for winning the 2 Man Team competition with 37 points, the Individuals title goes to Steve Lodge with 1680 points, first class angling!
