Boatyard 17 !!!!

January 30th 2022

Seven hardy souls tried again today, all pegged in the gate basin. A decision was made to fish a 3hr match instead of the usual 5 on a lovely morning to sit out.

No bites were registered again though we’ll try again next week.

With six matches left of this winter, I thought it might be interesting to look at the winning weights so far. It’s not been a classic season by any means, though there’s a marked drop off in catches around Christmas and New Year. The only thing that I can think changed was the cold high pressure moving in that’s been here for weeks now, the predators and boat movements have been there all winter, but who knows, we can only hope for better!
