Report on Fishing Competition on April 28th 2019

Despite the storm the day before four boats managed to get out for the first real competition of the year for the biggest Ray. Although Richard had a slow start, Paul, Leggy and Dan were out early. The wind was a moderate NW to start, but eased off after lunch with the sun coming out. Fish caught were mostly dogfish and smoothound, with a 10lb one caught of the brambles by Steve. At closure of fishing about 5 pm, three rays were caught, with the winning thornback of 6lb caught by Steve followed by Dan with a spotted Ray of 4lb and Leggy with a thornback of around 3lb. First, second and third prizes were awarded at the clubhouse at 6 pm, accompanied by a beer.

What a great start! The next competition will be for the biggest Smoothound on May 12th.

Cheers Richard Davis and Mike Harvey
