Important Vote: Best specimen winner
« on: November 01, 2014, 12:11:40 PM »
This is the most important vote that sar will have each year...so please I'd like as many members as possible to vote in this one.  .cool.


Here we will decide who wins our best specimen trophy, this competition ran along side the species race competition that we held.


Originally Moonfleet tackle were going to provide this trophy but we've had zero interest in the competition from them so we at SAR are now providing this trophy instead.  .cool.


Take a quick look here before you decide who should get your vote (poll at top of page) poll closes 22/11/2014 In the event of a tie, the angler who finished highest up the species challenge table will win the trophy.


A quick run down of entries for you here to. In no particular order....


Eltel: Shore caught thornback ray of 8lb 14 ounces from Silloth, Cumbria.


Outkast: Ballan wrasse (no weight) shore, Whithorn.


Eltel: Scad (no weight) shore, Seaham.


Bigroppa: John Dory, (no weight) shore, Druridge bay, Northumberland.


Fishcakes: Brill (no weight) shore, Horden?


Eltel: Pollack 11lb 8 ounces, Tyne boat.


Eltel: Cod, 13lb 3 ounces, Tyne boat.


Fishingmark: Pollack, aprox weight 10lb, shore, Eyemouth.


Thunderpants: Cuckoo wrasse (no weight) shore, Isle of Skye


Thunderpants: Pollack 70cm, 8lb, shore Isle of Skye.

well I would think the john dory is not a common fish in the north east well done to the lad  but  fishingmark 10lb pollark shore caught is a cracker, and eltel shore caught thornback another cracker
my vote goes to eltel thornback

Chris's john dory has to go down as one of the rarest fish entered in the hunt but as for size specimen fish my vote went to Mark's 10lb shore caught Pollock

Marks 10lb pollock is a beast from the shore.... The John Dory is another cracker though!... Purely for the size of marks fish and the rareness of the John Dory.

john dory just for the rarity... maybe the pollock if it was weighed a doubler, still a very good fish as all the others

pollock because it will have been fished for. the john dory is a lovely rare fish but was only a small by catch.

think you are being a bit unfair by calling it a small by catch,its the only one caught on this coast that I know of,pollock are 10 a penny and easy to catch in the summer marks 10lb Pollock is a cracking specimen not many lads manage to land a Pollock that size,chris was targeting turbet and most of us has caught different species while targeting a certain fish and shouldn't be dismissed as a small by catch/  davy.

but.. without being nasty and upsetting anyone.... thats exactly what it was.

the lad with the pollock was actually targeting them and caught a specimen doing so.
