The Weather at it's best.

On Sunday 5th August we held a Shallow Boat competition. The weather could not have been better, sunshine right from the start with a light breeze all day, which made all the anglers very happy and provided a good day's fishing.
Six club members signed on and all six weighed in fish consisting of dogfish, mackerel, scad, smoothhound, undulate, thornback, and blonde rays, pouting, black bream, wrasse and bass. Atotal of 43 fish were weighed and measured for a total weight of 94lbs 3.7oz. Only edible fish are retained. All other fish are released straight away at sea.
Best specimen fish on the day was a black bream of 1lb 10.4oz (46.42% of specimen fish) and was also the heaviest fish brought back to the scales, caught by Phil Morgan.
Results:
1st Robert Miness 7 fish for 27lbs 7.2oz, 2nd Barrylittle Fair 9 fish for 24lbs 8.4oz, 3rd Denis Mapes 9 fish for 14lbs 15.6oz, 4th Phil Morgan 8 fish for 14lbs 7oz,

On Sunday 22nd July we held a Shallow Boat competition. The weather on the day started off very fine with a light breeze, but sadly once the tide turned it became very windy and the sea state became choppy which made it rather uncomfortable sitting in a boat fishing.

The best specimen and heaviest fish (which are brough back to the scales for weighing) was a black bream weighing 1lb 14oz (53.57% of specimen fish) caught by Alan Martin.
