This year, for the first time, the VSHTS had a Fish-Off. Basically, the winner got bragging rights and a free fish mount. The location for this even was Mallets Bay in Colchester. While the bite wasn’t great there were a few nice fish caught throughout the day.
Sitting with a few buddies on the outskirts of everyone, we had a school of rudd work through on a few different occasions. They were coming through in groups of 15-20 and took very little time to stop and look. I have caught a few of them through the ice but had never seen action like that. Very neat to see!
At the end of the day, the cold had taken its toll and heading home shortly after 2 felt good. Plenty of time to rest up to get back out tomorrow!
