Large Boat Competition 8th September.

On Sunday 8th September the club held a Large Boat competition in which nine club members enjoyed the fine early September's weather aboard "Private Venture" skippered by Art Savage. The competition was a game in two halves with the morning spent targeting plaice, which duly obliged with nearly everyone vatching a few, together with mackerel, scad and garfish. Also Ed Taylor had a small turbot while we were drifting for plaice.
With the tide easing, a move was made to a wreck in Freshwater Bay, which produced a flurry of decent-sized pout. A further move to a bank was followed by a final move to another wreckfurther offshore. The afternoon's flooding tide seemed to quieten things down compared to earlier in the day.
For once no dogfish were caught on the competition. A small tope was caught by Arran Harmer and a strap conger fell to Nelson Phillips. Perhaps the best fish of the day was a black bream of2lb 13oz caught by Roland Blomfield on a scad head!
