Seven juniors fished the second leg of CBVSACs Junior summer league earlier today.
Welcome to new members Hannah Elmer and Hannah Davies who along with the 5 regulars endured wet conditions at Benarth.
Fishing was frantic from the off, with Eels, some fine specimen Flounders and a couple of small Codling being measured and weighed before being released, all falling to the crab provided free of charge from Joe in Jokers tackle, Colwyn Bay. Ta Joe!
Terry was kept so busy on the measure and scales that he didn’t even have time to set a rod up for himself! I was again bunking off due to work commitments so thanks Dad!
Still buzzing from his appearance on the young rods page of this months Sea Angler, Tom Jones took the honours today with a bag of 5 Flounders and 2 Eels for a total length of 240cms.
Stephen Higginson was just behind him with a Flounder, 4 Eels and a Codling for 221cms,
and on her debut, Hannah Elmer took third spot with 6 Flounders and an Eel for 190cms.
Dan Peters had 3 Flounders for 147cms,
closely followed by big brother Jack who had 3 Flounders and a Codling for 141cms.
Tom Davies had a Flounder and an Eel for 68cms and his little sister Hannah didn’t manage to catch but still enjoyed her first trip out.
All of the kids received some bits and bobs from Jokers as well as the usual cash prizes for the top 3.
4 Flounders over specimen weight were caught, with the best of 2-0-4 falling to Jack Peters.
His brother Dan had 2 at 1-12-12 and 1-10-8,
and Tom Jones had one of 1-10-12.
The next junior match is at Rhyl ( Splash Point ) on 17/7/11 fishing from 18-30 until 21-30.
