    Fished harrington open heaviest fish match tonight 4-8pm 3hrs down 1 up in about as near perfect conditions for cod fishing in cumbria as you are ever likely to get.
    Hopes werent too high as it hasnt been a vintage year for the cod over here but this match covered some of the best ground in west cumbria.
    it didnt fish too bad with a fair scattering of cod right through the venue but no big bags would have been out as in better years.
    winning the match was tam borland from scotland with a 8lb 9oz cod the best fish out in this match for many a year.£500.he also had another over 6lb.
    second ged stevens from barrow 7lb 6oz a good fish that would win every other year.£300.
    third mike cooke from harrington club 5lb 4oz.£200.the harrington club also fished it as a club match and he won their snowball comp for another £500,nice nights work :yes:
    i was fifth for a 4lb 10 oz cod its always been my aim to win this match but the way its going ill be a pensioner by then.
    it was nice to see a few cod though and its give the local scene a lift as its been poor.

    Great Maxie, Well done them are nice fish indeed and i have seen that match won with a cod less than 4lb 10oz in the past.. I would of had a look over last night but its the Whitby Open today and an early start for me,.. I do like fishing the Harrington and Lowca area it reminds me of our home grounds, with big boulders, scars and kelp showing on the better tides...
