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.

2016/17 targets -

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

2015/16 targets -

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

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.

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
