A disappointing turnout of 21 club members fished the first leg of our summer league in the Conwy estuary earlier today.

The match was fished 3 down and 1 up, so the majority of people headed for the lagoon to target the Flounders. However those of us who have previously fished there with the juniors headed to Benarth, in the hope the Eels had arrived there.

We set up and cast inbetween the moored boats and Toms rod was registering a good bite within the first quarter of an hour. He unfortunately missed this bite, along with another which was just as good on his second cast.

The action hotted up. I had a nibble which turned out to be my biggest ever Flounder at 1-11-8lbs and over the clubs specimen weight so i was well happy cheers cheers cheers

Tom managed a slightly smaller one soon after.

Terry meanwhile, was struggling and had managed an undersized Flounder for his efforts, while Chris and Stephen who were fishing next to us had a fish each. They continued to get smaller ones including this one for Stephen

Terry got an in sized one in the end but as the tide dropped the Flounders went off the feed and as hoped the Eels arrived.

We all bagged up with the snotties, including a few double headers between us.

I ticked another target off my species hunt Very Happy

Eventually, it was time to pack up and head back for the weigh in.

A bag of 4 Flounders, including a fine fish over 2lb took top spot for Mitch.
Chris Jackson, who fished with us was second with 5 Flounders and 7 Eels, with me in third with a Flounder and 6 Eels.
Terry was fourth with 2 Flounder and 3 Eels, and Tom showed its not just the juniors he can beat, by finishing fifth overall, and top junior on the day with a Flounder and 3 Eels. cheers

With 2 junior matches scheduled at Benarth in the next few months, i cant wait to get back and get into those snotties again. Laughing

Happy Days!!!
