Sea Angling

COMMERCIAL SEA Angling Club’s eagerly awaited new season arrived and as normal Mother Nature was having her say with a fresh northerly wind appearing just for Saturday to lift the sea just in time for Sunday.

It was however not unfishable and died away as the match progressed. The conditions were not to be scoffed at, light winds and a lovely dry sunny day for the most part anyway. Most of the catches were a mix of whiting and flounders with a few cod, a bass and a thornback ray thrown in for good measure.

It turned out that most of the fish appeared in the latter stages of the match apart from a few who ventured out on newly purchased bicycles, they had fish from a very early part of the match. Unluckiest angler was probably Ian Laverack, ‘Lavy’ benefitted from the new bass rules and brought one back to the scales, but unfortunately landed another which had to go back and would probably have won him the biggest bag.

The most miles travelled and most gear lost award goes to Dave Hart who travelled up and down and around Spurn Point all on foot to chase the fish around. However, this did pay off (although Dave begged to differ on the Monday morning) Dave returned with the biggest bag of 15 fish for 4.245kg.

Richest man on the day was Paul Eden who snared a thornback ray of 1.91kg to take a tidy sum in the super pool.

Taylor Fisk started off with a nice bag to take the junior prize with 3.1kg which included two cod. Runner-up was one of the club’s new juniors, Fynnley Marshall, who had 0.265kg.
