Right folks this is not a full account of this last weekends Manx Boat Fishing's 2 day species hunt, but just the results of how it all panned out on the 2nd day.
It has to be said though that this year was a very tight affair and no matter where you finished it was a very hard fought competition.
I will be doing a full report when i get all the photos from you all and have put all the facts of what went on together, in the meantime here are the full results;
Results of the ELAS BUSINESS SUPPORT 2 Day species hunt are:
1st WICKED HEN 23 SPECIES
( HAVING THE HEAVIEST POOL FISH)
2ND TRAMPIE 23 SPECIES
3RD KINGFISHER II 22 SPECIES
( HAVING THE HEAVIER POOL FISH)
4TH MERIT I 22 SPECIES
5TH KIRSTY III 21 SPECIES
(HAVING THE HEAVIER POOL FISH)
6TH SHEROLYN III 21 SPECIES
7TH STRIKER 20 SPECIES
8TH BONES II 18 SPECIES
In total there was a total of 24 different species caught during the 2 days.
there were 2 pool fish for the competition which were Ling and Haddock, no boat managed to catch a legal size haddock so it rested on who had the heaviest ling as stated above to separate the positions.
Pool fish winning positions are as follows :
1st KIRSTY III LING OF 10.5LB
2ND WICKED HEN LING OF 6.6LB
3RD KINGFISHER II LING OF 5.7LB
