17 anglers arrived in the car park nice and early eager to get fishing. With the sound of crashing waves coming from behind the shingle bank bets where being taken on how long our chairman Dean Gibson would last.
Pegging was from the pipe to the left towards Kelling.
Once on top of the shingle ridge it was clear it was not going to be an easy fish but the chances of a decent fish was good.
On the way to the pegs there was a few dead dog fish washed up which was sad to see but did mean they where still around.
The match started and to our relief holding bottom was not an issue but getting any sort of distance was, it soon became clear that it wouldn’t matter as that is where the fish were with many anglers carding fish from there first cast with large whiting and big dabs.
The eventual winner Andrew Turk was pegged next to me and was bringing dabs in almost every cast managing 9 sizeable fish for 3lb 11oz 2/3 including biggest flat a 33cm flounder.
Upon returning to the car park to sort out the results I noticed mr Hipperson was still around which meant either the pizza shop was shut or he had caught some fish and thought he was in the frame, as it turned out he managed 2nd place with 3 fish for 2lb 3oz 1/3 including biggest round a 36cm Bass.
3rd place was Simon Bone with a good 8 fish for 2lb 2oz.
No dogfish but there was a couple of coal fish come out
