With 20 anglers ready to fish we all trooped across the golf course to our relevant pegs. Fishing was to the left and right as you enter onto the beach. Expectation was high with good reports of Codling & Bass being caught. With high tide just before 8pm the sea was calm & with only a very slight breeze would make any bite detection easy.
At 7pm lines went into the water & straight away it was the ever obliging Pin Whiting & Rockling & a odd Pouting that would be taking our baits. With lots of undersized fish being caught we were all listening for reports from either end of the beach for sizeable Codling or Bass, eventually news filtered along that a Bass of 38cm had been caught by David Lake this would give him 2nd place for the evening with 1lb 2oz. Richard Chapman would take 3rd Place with 2x 27cm Whiting & a couple of Rockling at 1lb 0oz. Eventually Jake Cooper would break his duck for this season & scoop 1st place with a bag full of Rockling & a nice 34cm Whiting totalling 1lb 7oz – Well Done Jake
All in all a good nights fishing although not a huge amount of fish were caught.
Thanks to Shane Brown for pegging the match before we all arrived, Also to Kimberly Lawn for doing the score sheets & to Pete Hansell for getting us all our bait sorted so we could all fish.
