    My hat off to Messrs Wilcox and Ward - roughly equal to last summer's winning fish overall?

    Me and my pal have a total of five days booked next week with Dolly and Miss Bess, and I think a 'shit or bust' change in tactics may now be in order - I'm gonna buy three cases of herring, which I'll fish on a flowing trace over all five days and see if I can catch misen a big 'barn door' (aka halibut)...

    May be an idea for some of you paying customers to direct your skippers in search of halibut or other species. Gonna take something special now.

    Hats off to you M8! The very best of luck with your speciman hunting tactics . Please let us know how you get on. It takes some mindset to get the codgogs off. Im sure there are bigger fish down there but few fish with strong enough gear and the right tactics.

    Oh dear, my dream of winning the festival is disappearing again lol. Seriously, congrats to John and Richie for getting a superb start and making the festival even more competitive now.

    stickman There's a difference between fishing and catching!

    Bah humbug! I go away for the weekend and come back to find my dreams of getting a winning fish (a week on Tuesday) pretty well shattered :cry:
    It's going to take an awfully big fish and some clever work from skipper and angler to beat that - what a great start and well done to John and Richard. Hats off to both of you :cool:

    Dream on eh!

    could this now mean that people will not be bothered to pay the entrance fee. Was reading about the fee the other day if i was on a boat with say 9 others and they did not want to fish the comp due to the 26lber what would it cost me to enter.

    That's interesting view, maybe some people would be put off from this. But the majority of us I guess would carry on regardless.
