Best of luck Kevin

I've been shying away from fish kill competitions for a while now, (in fact i've been absent from all competitions for a while to be honest) so will probably leave it until it's a wee bit less crowded.

That's fair enough Allan,its all a bit of fun and for guys who have never fished a compy from the boat before.Fun is the name of the game.Fish were on the top last night which was good to see all we need now is better weather and we are off.

It did cross my mind to make it all catch and release,but 2 fish to weigh in isn't all that bad and 1lb for each fish returned.
