2018/19 STATISTICS

The club's statistician, (Rob) has analysed the cod catches from the mid week league for 2018/19 and has come up with some interesting trends. These are set out in the graphs below. The first of the graphs shows the overall catch rate and superimposes the heaviest fish totals to see if there is any correlation. See what you think.

You can see that cod numbers remain pretty healthy with 458 fish brought to the scales during 2018/19. The league tables back that up where this year's winner weighed in over 100lbs. It's a while since this has been done so well done.

It's also notable and logical that the big fish follow the smaller fish around where most of the double figure cod were caught over 12 years ago when cod and whiting were more plentiful. Whether there are any other environmental factors at play here, including trawler activity, who can say but it makes for interesting reading.

 

The next graph gives a very clear picture of the catches over the last 20 odd years. Again it shows that we are going through a reasonably productive period but without any of the really big bags that were a feature in the early 2000s. Can't have verything I suppose so I think we should be content that the catch trend is upwards as cod numbers improve. Roll on next year!

SUMMARY

MATCH STATS

For those who like to ponder over the season and wonder what went right, or wrong, here is a table that summarises the catch rate over the Winter months in the Mid Week league. Individual competition catches varied between a lowly 9lb 5oz to a hefty 75lb 13oz. There are some surprises, not least of which being - where have all the Whiting gone?

TRENDS

And here is the updated trend analysis which shows how the catch patterns have varied over the last 12 years. Codling have held up reasonably well this year but coalies, flounder and whiting are well down. It seems to be the big boys or nothing!
