Only 2 juniors braved the biting Easterly breeze to fish the first leg of the Junior Winter league, at Conwy Morfa. With temperatures forecast to fall to minus 6 tonight, it was cold enough, but the wind chill must have taken another 5 degrees off.

Tom and Elliot were joined by Dave Elmer, who was after his specimen Rockling, and Terry put a rod out as well, so the question was “Were there any fish playing?”

It was all quiet, until 18-20, when Elliot had a knock that he missed. Dave had a small Rockling, and Elliot managed to find a Flounder on his next cast, which measured 19cms.

Tom had retired to the car between casts, due to the falling temperature, but the sight of a couple of fish spurred him on, and upon reeling in, he found a Flounder of 24cms had taken a fancy to his crab bait.

Next cast, with 3 crab halves as bait, then back to the car for 15 minutes. He saw Dave with another Rockling, and Terry came up to tell us Toms rod was nodding. We rushed down to the waters edge and Tom reeled in a double header, of a 19cm Flounder, and a 17cm slug.

Dave was lured home, by beer, and Elliot and Terry both missed good bites, then Elliot was unlucky to lose a Flounder at the waters edge.

The end of match couldnt come too soon, and at 8pm, the scores were 60cm to Tom, earning him the £10 first prize. Elliot got the remaining prize of £5, with his 19cms.

Next stop Maccy Ds with the prize money.

Oh yeah! Terry blanked, AGAIN!!!

Happy Days.

Cracking report there Kev, and all credit to Tom and Elliot for fishing in freezing conditions like this and catching fish as well, that's more than what can be said for them old codgers blanking at Penmaenmawr last week, it's about time they hung up their rod's, especially Gwynie the pig lol!

Fair doos, it was bitter.

Tom was made up with his tenner, and beating everyone else.

I had more sense than to get my rod out, although i was thinking of trying for slugs with 6/0s on wire, just to prove it can be done. Maybe leave it until a warmer night.
