2 fish Total Weight 93.11lbs, Average Weight 46.55lbs

A tough final week of the season with some changeable weather to be expected at this time of the year. Simon broke his PB twice and Peter caught our 55th x 50+lb fish of the season. The fish get to have a well earned rest until the middle of March 2018. Here’s hoping for a couple of nice cold spells over the Winter and a good start to the 2018 season.

2017 has been a fabulous catching year with numbers and weights well up on previous years.

Next Catch Reports will be towards the end of March 2018!
