Three juniors braved the strong winds, to fish the third leg of the junior summer league at Flint on 22/06/08.

We fished half way along the stretch, where the water is within a short lob three hours before high, which is when we started. The bank behind us sheltered us well from the wind, which was a bonus.

Elliot started well, he was fishing with a broken thumb and had three fish measured before anyone else had a bite!

His first fish was this Flounder of 19cms.

Next, he had a cracking knock, which i thought was a schoolie, however, he reeled in this specimen Eel to prove me wrong.

It weighed 01-05-04.

He had another smaller Eel before Tom opened his account with this one of 50 cms. ( We round the length down to the nearest 10 cms to keep make measuring them easier)

Things were still quiet for Stephen, although his step dad was catching a few next to him.

As we got closer to high water, the size of the Eels decreased, but the Elliot and Tom kept getting bites.

Tom also had a bit of bad luck, when a small Eel dropped off as he lifted it out of the water, i hope this isnt vital at the end of the league.

At the end of the match, Elliot was the winner with 4 Eels and a Flounder for 209cms. Tom was second with 3 Eels for 110cms and Stephen took third prize, but unfortunately failed to catch!

The current league placings are;
1. Tom, 44 points, 312cms
2. Elliot, 43 points, 282cms
3.Stephen, 18points, 30cms
4.Evan, 10points, 0cms

We took this photo as we left, i doubt there will be any of the grass left if we want to fish this venue in the future, so thinking caps on for an alternative!

Great report Kev!
Reports are a bit few and far between at the moment.... hopefully we can get a few more members posting!

Well done lads, rather you than me on the eel's

Its a good job the wall at the back looks solid! otherwise we would be fishing by the high street in a couple of years! I will have to look if i've got any pictures of the same stretch from a couple of years ago?
