BOTTOMLEY BREAKS INTO THE TOP 3 ON A
FULL MOON AND CALM SEA
With the car park banter in full swing and Holey buckets borrowed, we set off down the slope to Leon smiths home venue, with the man himself in the middle, 4 to his right 4 to his left, it soon became apparent that just carding a fish would be a tall order, and it showed with only 14 fish carded, 10 of which falling to the top 4.
Again top rod honours went to Peter Symonds with 3 fish, 2nd place went to Leon Smith with 2 fish, including a 36cm Bass winning him the nights biggest round, which helped him push Simon Bottomley into a well deserved podium finish with 3 fish.
Biggest flat of the night went to Dave Mathers with a 30cm flounder.
Again great banter despite the fishing being slow and well done to all for stick it out in the colder months
