Another record obliterated!!

543 fish were transferred over the dam, smashing the previous total by 176!!
The grand total is now 3821!
At a very conservative estimated weight of 22 lbs each, that's  84062 lbs of finned fury!
Over 42 tons!! No wonder my shoulders ache!
Are we going to see 5000? The run doesn't appear to be over yet. Time will tell.
These lofty numbers are due in large part to the efforts of a group of 5 employees of Lucky Strike Fishing who made the drive from Peterborough taking a day away from the "office" to help with the transfer. Thanks fellas! Much appreciated!
Lucky Strike has been instrumental in this project from the get go, donating fantastic landing nets and replacement meshes, as these mighty fish are reeking havoc with this gear.
Thank you again to ALL the volunteers who made this record day possible!

The Lucky Strike Team

Nice Brown Pete!
