Smoothhound Challenge day two

After a slow start the hounds turned up today with us managing to boat 35.

A good few doubles, with in form Mark Dolben taking the largest once again at 16lb.

Smoothhound Challenge day one

46 smoothhounds landed on the first day sail of our Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge. Plenty of hounds around the 8lb mark and a few into double figures. Mark Dolben taking the lead with 15lb 4oz. Fingers crossed the remainder of the week  It was harder work in the evening with only 7 hounds landed but double the amount dropped.  Strong north winds not helping our cause. Handful of doubles landed 11 to 12lb  More photos in the 2018 Challenge Gallery
