Day 2 was perfect again with the only difference ….big fish and more complete teams on the end of the day. So many teams have a full house see the results below and tomorrow we expect more complete teams while others are improving their score with bigger ones ( 4 pike, 3 perch and 1 trout needed ) Lees “Predator Battle Ireland Day 2 Done.” verder
Finally we could start the Battle after a year of preparing on a very nice day! After checking 60 boats and answering some questions of the participants we could start at 9 am. Some boats are so big that we really need extra time to check all compartments and bags but… all good 😊
This year they had to make a photo of their catch and a small video after to check the length again. It is pretty simple but still a few with the fish with the belly on the wrong side or missing the day card proof…no score! We know its not nice when your fish doesnt count but if we say yes to one mistake we have to accept all mistakes…..
Nico en Herman had section C but it looks like they are scared for me or so haha almost no fishermen till maybe 2 pm. Lucky enough to see some teams catching fish and made a few photos of them. But in general the most teams had problems to catch their fish today in a westerly wind!
Weather for tomorrow looks like the same but hopefully more feeding fish and more bigger ones.
Below the results of day 1 which looks good when you are in the top 3 but that can change quickly tomorrow 😊

Hey… hier zijn we weer met een update van onze wedstrijd. Voorbije 3 dagen waren -zacht uitgedrukt- hectisch, daarom hadden we niet eerder de tijd om wat te schrijven.
Maandag morgen was het de start van de eerste dag. Herman had de nodige stewards geregeld om de bootcontrole strak te laten verlopen, en de sfeer was bij alle teams optimaal. Het is na de bootcontrole altijd leuk buurten met de andere teams, waar we intussen al veel gasten van kennen. Lees “Nico en Frans Predator Battle 2020 deel 3: Game On!” verder
When you start your day as leading team you must be very nervous, team 1 Julian and Krzysztof had the best score ever in the Battle, is that beatable?? I’m sure that there are enough teams who could do it!
After the boat check a small pep talk to the teams that the fight is not over yet so after some screaming we left to the starting point to kick off ….full speed. Lees “Predator Battle Ireland day 3 the final day!” verder
After the boat check in Killaloe we all feel a bit better, participants are chill we did our work so all ready for day 2. It is always a bit a nervous moment of the day, launch your boat, be on time, did I bring all my gear! Day 2 a windy one is that good or bad? Bad for smaller boats and better for the bigger ones?
All teams on time this morning so all full in the focus! After some boat checks and making the first photos of the team we left Killaloe harbour direction Lough Derg.
