land haul of cod during Burnham-On-Sea competition
haul of cod was reeled in during Burnham's first sea fishing competition
of the year on Sunday (January 2nd).
flotilla of more than 15 boats headed out into the Bristol Channel
for the day-long contest, which was organised by Burnham Boat
Owners Sea Angling Association.
members were rewarded with a haul of over 20 cod, although most
were of a small weight.
competition was jointly won by Craig Dumbleton and Mark Bowden,
who both caught cod weighing 3lb 9oz. Second was John Batt, third
was Jeff Clarke and fourth was Aarron Devey.
Competition Organiser Craig Willis told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It
was good to see a large amount of cod being caught, even if the
sizes and weights were poor. It's good to see the fish returning."
