Myself, A Barmby and M Smith decided to fish the Eastenders open today. It was a heaviest fish match with an optional sweep for heaviest bag. The boundries were between the Tyne and the Wear so we decided on fishing around the Souter point area. It was Andy,s first visit to that area and only me and Mark,s second. After a slow start we all ended up doing pretty good. I had second heaviest fish, 5.5lb cod (Ã‚Â£140)Andy had 3rd,4lb cod (Ã‚Â£80) Mark 4th 3.5lb cod (Ã‚Â£30) Andy also had heaviest bag, 4 cod 10lb (Ã‚Â£60) so a good day was had by all! A 9lb cod won. Andy reeled a fish in with one of his own hooks already in it,s mouth, then I reeled one in with one of his hooks in it,s mouth also ;D even though he was fishing the opposite side of the scar to me! We think it must have picked up his hook after he,d snapped it off. I lost a fish at least as big as the one I got the following cast pulling it through the weed and had a couple of good bites that were hitting hard then dropping loads of slack. Mark fished the other end to us and managed to get the only fish from that area.
