Calm conditions ideal for sea fishing competition in Burnham-On-Sea

A flotilla of boats took part in a fishing competition in the waters off Burnham-On-Sea at the weekend.

Ten boats from Burnham Boat Owners Sea Angling Association took part in Sunday's Tony Holly Trophy comprising of 17 members, a junior and six guests.

"This was the best turnout for a competition for some time and the weather was calm with boats fishing between Brean and Blue Anchor and most places in between," said the group's Pete Nicholson.

Species caught included thornbacks, conger, whiting, a bull huss and a codling. First was Mike Sheppard with a Bull Huss weighing 9lb 4oz, second was Nigel Devey with a 2lb 7oz specimum, third was Martin Quinn with a 2lb 3oz catch and the pool for best cod was won by James Devey.
