Large Boat Competitions 2020 fishing aboard Private Venture.

organised by: Alec Harmer 01590-674045.

1st Large Boat Competition 1st December.

It was a case of third time lucky for club members when they managed to get afloat for their December competition aboard Private Venture, skippered by Art Savage. With the two previous monthly competitions having had to be cancelled due to the weather, strong force five winds on this occasion were from a north-easterly direction, resulting in the sea state being quite reasonable.
A mark just off the Needles was initially chosen and this produced congers up to 25lbs as well as just sizeable whiting, dogfish and rays. As the tide eased, a move was made further out and this produced a few pouting in addition to the earlier species caught. Altogether the fishing was slow but steady throughout the day.
1st Arran Harmer 74pts, 2nd Malcolm Gerrish 70pts, 3rd Alec harmer 59pts, 4th Ed Taylor 55pts,
5th Derek Smith 34pts, 6th Brian Dawkins 28pts, 7th Colin Saunders 11pts.
The Large Boat champion for 2019 was Ed Taylor with Arran Harmer as runner-up.
