Sunday 23rd December 2012

Sunday 23rd was supposed to be the Christmas Fayre match but was again called off due to a very windy forecast.

Six boats did turn up in the morning however determined to launch and catch some fish, even Simon the Tractor was fishing and, they decided to hold an impromptu match among themselves.

There were lots of rays and whiting caught but only the one cod to Martin Quinn at 14lb 11oz, a very welcome early Christmas present for him!

Results were as follows:

1st          Martin Quinn   Cod   14lb 11oz

2nd       Bradley Winterson  Whiting   1lb 8oz

3rd       Pete Watson   Whiting   1lb 7oz

 

Well done guys for braving the winds and lumpy seas.

Saturday 8th Dec

Saturday saw us out on one of our monthly charters, this time out of Hayling Island on Valkyrie skippered by Glen Cairns.

Glen had a hunch  for a big cod and headed for a bank west of the Nab Tower and away from the crowds.

Down went the lines and up came a few dogs, a couple of small thornback rays, whiting, pout and a couple of congers to 18lb. Then one of the guys rods just bent over and nearly went over the side, 15 mins later and this monster was netted it had smashed a whiting that was already hooked on the bait that was easily over 1lb!!!
