Iris boat competition results

For the second boat competition in a row, the Herons' were forced to fish uncomfortable conditions as the westerly winds prevailed in the Iris boat competition on Sunday 25th June. 
Nine anglers headed out and to say the day was slow would be an understatement. In fact, just 3 managed to find sizeable fish in the end. 
I. Morris nabbed a small hound for 3rd spot whilst cousin B. Morris found two of a better stamp for second spot, the largest of these going 7lbs 7oz. It was Ian's dad M. Morris who came up trumps in the end though, along with a dogfish and 3 hound pups, Mick caught a nice skate which pulled the scales down to a healthy 12lbs 9.6oz. Small bass were also caught by others but the warm weather and continued drifts of weed are clearly taking their toll on our fishing of late. 
Full results as follows;
1st- M. Morris, 5 fish, 21lbs 1.6oz
2nd- B. Morris, 2 fish, 14lbs 7.6oz
3rd- I. Morris, 1 fish, 3lbs 10.4oz
