What a great day! And wow those kids rods and reels can handle some weight! Massive thanks to Lyme bay charters for putting us all on the fish again 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
Brilliant day today on our first ever “silly rod comp” rules were simple, heaviest fish wins. Darren from the Tackle box provided 21 Pink Jarvis Walker 6ft cheap kids pier rods with 6lb line on the tiny fixed spool reels. We set out on Pegasus and Alice Rose to fish reef marks to the west of Lyme Regis for Bream, Rays, Conger, Huss and anything else that made an appearance. After an hour or so Darren brought in a Conger of 9lb and we all thought this would be the fish to beat, minutes after Brian Moss boated a Conger weighing in at 14lb, these rods are tougher than we first thought! As the day went on lots of Bream were landed reports from Alice Rose were plenty of strap eels and small Huss but nothing big enough to challenge Darren or Brian’s Eels. Lots of Bream and other smaller fish were caught and then it was apparent that John Hansford had hooked into something substantial (for these rods anyway) after a lengthy battle taking him around the boat we managed to land a 17lb Conger. Soon after Josh Chestney announced he was in, and we could all see it was another decent fish which again took him from one side of the boat to the other, eventually we brought aboard another Conger this one weighing 19lb, another hour or 2 passed, John and Josh both had Undulate Rays up to 10lband lots more Bream and Mackerel were caught, then Josh was in again, after a brilliant fight lasting at least 20 minutes and 2 big dives from the surface back to the bottom I slipped the net under another Conger this one weighing between 22 and 24lb! As the tide eased the fishing slowed and no more big fish were caught but a steady stream of Bream kept everyone entertained for the last hour or so. All bigger fish were returned safely after a quick weigh and photo, only a few Bream and Mackerel were kept for the table. The final results were as follows; Most Species- John Hansford - 9 3rd place Brian Moss - 14lb Conger 2nd Place John Hansford - 17lb Conger 1 st Place Josh Chestney - 22lb Conger Well done all!
