Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge – day two


Me and my big mouth in closing after day one looking forward to better weather for day two in our competition . 17-20mph north winds not the best, but workable with a decreasing forecast. The morning we were greeted with 22-30mph. After poking our nose around the breakwater, we came back in!

Tea, coffee, chit chat and putting the world to rights, been a fun morning 😁

With easing winds after lunch we headed back out and set the crabs to do their thing.18hounds caught our total, all of them bar a couple between 6 an 8lb, real small sharks compared to our regular stamp.

Manchester based Peter the winner with a credible 9lb 13oz amongst his catches.

As always big thanks to our sponsors at Pure Fishing UK Ltd for the fantastic PENN Squadron II Touch Tip rod and PENN Battle II 5000 FS prize.
