MATCH 9 - TAN – LAN
Sat. October 10th
18 members and 2 guests fished this low water match, with perfect doggie conditions ,expectations were pretty high.We were fishing our dogfish rule, which means keeping your best 2 fish to weigh in, and releasing the rest to count as one kilo each, it turned out to be a good idea because the fish count from the 19 who weighed in was 246 dogs, 74 whiting and a pout !
