Lawler Pairs boat competition results

For the most part, conditions were perfect for the sixteen Herons taking part in this years Lawler Pairs boat competition on Sunday 15th April. As well as partners combined weights contributing to the trophy and individual results rewarding championship points, it was decided the event would also coincide with the boat accumulator prize monies since that event was previously cancelled.
Catches were encouragingly varied with 6 species landed overall. Bags consisted of whiting, dogfish, pouting, dabs, thornback rays and some small smoothhounds. 
The heaviest fish of the day fell for B. Morris, fishing with partner T. Morris on the weir bank. The thornback ray pulled the scales down to a healthy 13lbs 3.4oz, a personal best for Ben.  
This was closely followed by another personal best ray, L. Perry-French’s offering came in at 12lbs 9oz. 
Along with this fish, Lewis and brother Bradley managed a combined weight of 48lbs 8.6oz for 2nd place, behind Ben and Tony Morris in 1st. Tony took the individual honours with an impressive weight of 42lbs 11.2oz.
