Roland flounder

2nd Shore Competition 25th January.

On Saturday 25th January the club held its 2nd shore competition at Sandbanks, Poole Harbour. With a strong south-westerly wind blowing the six club anglers who fished the competition found it a little uncomfortable at times. Ten fish were caught for a total weight of 9lb 15.50ozs and consisted of flounders, pouting and whiting. On these competitions only edible fish are retained. All others are weighed and released immediately. The best fish of the evening was a flounder weighing 2lb 3.25ozs which was also the best specimen of the evening and caught by Roland Blomfield.

3rd Shore Competition 8th February.

On Saturday evening 8th February the club held its 3rd shore competition at Hythe Marina. This was a changed venue because of the wind which was a very strong south westerly so we could not fish at Avon Beach.
Six club members fished catching 11 fish for a total weight of 7lb 13.2ozs and consisted of flounder, dogfish, pouting and whiting. The best round fish of the evening was a dogfish of 1lb 12.4ozs caught by Roland Blomfield. The best flat fish was a flounder of 7.4ozs caught by Malcolm Stote. No specimen fish was caught so this pool is a rollover until the next competition.
Only edible fish are retained. All other fish are weighed and released immediately.
1st Malcolm Stote 5 fish 4lb 14.4ozs, 2nd Roland Blomfield 2 fish 2lb 3.6ozs,
3rd Ben daniel 2 fish 0lb 6.6ozs, 4th Stephen Pitman 2 fish 0lb 5.2ozs.
