Great start to our Smoothhound Challenge week today. Sponsored by PENN Fishing and in its 10th year, the aim each day is to catch the heaviest hound to win a new rod and reel combo.
The weather settled from the storms of last week but I must admit an anxious feeling as to how the hound fishing would be. They’ve been a little elusive the last couple weeks, so I feared a slow day.
Thankfully they received my email, just under 40 hounds landed today. The majority far too small by our own standards at between 5 – 8lb with a number of double figures. Including Mark with a 14, Mickey with a 16, but the winner Jeff with a brilliant 17lb 9oz smoothie.
