Targets

Each season I will be setting myself a few targets, mainly to beat my eel and pike bests. I will also be targetting other species to try and increase a few personal bests. I will update this page as I achieve these targets.

2017/18 targets -

A double figure barbel from a new river, a 6lb + chub from a certain local river and a 20lb + pike.

2016/17 targets -

4lb + eel, over 50lb of tench and a personal best pike.

A personal best pike -

19lb 2oz


My eel and tench campaigns didn't go as planned, eels to 2lb 8oz and a total of 16lb 7oz of tench.

2015/16 targets -

Personal best eel, perch, pike and a first zander.


A personal best pike -

17lb 9oz

A first zander -

8lb 14oz


Unfortunately I failed in my attempts to increase my eel and perch bests. My eel campaign didn't really materialise, working nights and then becoming distracted by barbel meant beating my eel best wasn't likely. I managed to catch plenty of perch to 2lb 1oz, not bad but a bit short of my best.


2014/15 targets -

Eel over 2lb -

2lb 7oz (25th July)
2lb 15oz (21st August)

Perch over 2lb -

2lb 4oz (17th July)


P.b pike -

15lb 14oz (19th September)

2013/14 target -

10 pike (including at least 1 double)

Due to a lack of time and very poor weather conditions I set myself a modest target for the season. I managed to achieve the target, catching 14 pike in total with the largest going 10lb 6oz.

Largest of the season - 10lb 6oz
