BCFSA Interclub Charter Boat Contest 2018 – October Match & Final Results

October Match
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.

BCFSA Boat Pairs Competition – Round 2

Sunday 3rd June, the second round of the BCFSA Boat Pairs Competition.
It was a sunny day and flat calm, a beautiful day for a boat competition! Following a bacon roll and coffee we left the harbour at around 11:30am.
Osprey steamed down the coast to Hurlestone Point for a few drifts with the feathers to see what was about…. the lucky few caught Pollack and small Wrasse, the unlucky few spent the drifts tackling back up after losing rigs to the tackle hungry rocks below!
