Only 2 juniors fished the third leg of the Summer league at Splash Point last Saturday.
Conditions looked great for Bass, and with some Lug and Rag off Joker as well as plenty of lug available to dig fresh on a decent tide, i was confident we would see one.
We fished an hour down and 2 hours up, but fish were hard to come by.
Mehmet managed a Bass on the ebb next to Tom and more rods were coming down to fish the flood when Tom had a good bite.
He reeled in and i was a little surprised to see a half decent eel come through the surf rather than a schoolie. Never mind, Eels are longer
It was measured at 60cms and weighed at just under 1lb before being released.
Spurred on by this, both juniors continued to fish hard as the sun set.
Unfortunately, no more fish were landed and so Tom took the honours, 15 points and £10 top prize, as well as a goody bag from Jokers for top spot.
Stephen got £5 and a goodie bag from Jokers for his second place but only 5 points as he failed to catch.
The next junior match is at the Foryd on Sunday 4/9/11 fishing 14-00 until 17-00.
Plenty of other rods out but i didnt see anything else caught!
