It was a glorious afternoon as we made our way out on the bank....

I thought we`d get a few more rods out for a local match,but the league leaders were present so it would still be a good match.
Given the number of dogs in the river,i set my sights on them and rays early on,with squid,bluey and sandeel combos....
Image
Image
Action was very quiet early on and Godders and his mate,who fished 60yds to my right had found a snag,so moved over to the left next to Tony and Dave,which turned out to be a wise move as Graham found a few elusive dabs late on to grab 3rd place.
After an hour i snared a 30cm whiting and soon followed it with the only dog of the night,which was strange given the superb conditions....sadly i struggled to find anything other than crabs for the rest of the match,which was a similar story for Richie who was fishing on my left. Next up was Adam who managed to find a few fish,mainly on his fresh crab,with the legs working well for the dabs....it was tough cheddar for Adam as he had to leave with 15 mins to go as his missus had called to say she`d broken down,and as he only missed out on the win by 1cm,you have to feel for him.
Tony was finding the going tough to find in size fish,but Dave fished on his left and had another consistent display,and managed to find the target species,albeit a baby with a 28cm wingspan.but it was enough to help him to the win...Gazz fished the far right and did`nt follow in Grahams footsteps...we did`nt see him again all night :doh:
The fishing was pretty poor,but it`s always good to be on the beach with the lads and the competition makes for some good banter and keeps the interest up. With the final match at Cymyran Bay in 2 weeks,it`s a 3 way shoot out between myself,Godders and Tony...should be another good day out

Good report Kev, sorry I disappeared, I was en route to another venue (Cymyran) chasing the Small eyed variety, I couldnt let anyone know as my fone was dying and I had forgotten my charger. Alas no Rays showed up for me there either however the highlight of my efforts were 2 dogfish :evil: Iam looking forward to the next match there as I have a massive score to settle with that venue, no Small eyed Rays for me on 3 seperate visits, could it be 4th time lucky?

This was a new venue for me and like everyone else found it hard going especially with the crabs. Kept alternating between scratching rigs and larger baits finally getting my smallest ever ray on a 2/0 3 hook flapper baited with half a sandeel. How frustrating is it when you keep getting fish at just under the 25cm limit! A nice warm evening with good company. A shame the bigger fish failed to show but good to try a new venue and always something to learn watching other people fishing.

According to my calcs, with the two dropped matches, I need to finish three places above Kev to guarantee top spot, and if I finish two places clear it goes down to lengths, ooo errr! I'm not throwing the towel in just yet but with the consistency that Kev's shown throughout the comp I may have to rely on him forgetting his rod at home :lol:

7 out of the 9 matches count towards your overall score....with Pwllheli being cancelled you only drop the points from 1 more match,and with us both scoring 1 point at Pensarn,that leaves me just that single point ahead,so you only have to finish one place above me to take the trophy,as you have a better length,ooh err,so like Sat night can you stop crying it in :lol: :lol:

I hadn't reckoned on the cancelled match counting at all. You can still forget your rod in a couple of weeks time if you like Kev :lol:
