Average stamp of Bream around 5lb I would say, used to be a tad bigger than that with very few skimmers showing, now more skimmers show and the Bream as I say not as big as they used to be, but get on a shoal and there are plenty to go around. If you are going this time of year loopknot then red maggot and worm all the way, tends to get a bit trickier after that for bait choice, usually around the 14th April they start changing their minds........................;)

Happy to mark down the weights unfortunately not too much lifting for me with my back . Can also probably get hold off a second set of scales and weigh bucket as back up if needed.

I have some weigh sheets, a clip board and pen, I think that qualifies me for Role No. 5 :)
