Too Rough to Fish

Five brave souls tried, but after an hour of big waves, strong wind and masses of weed a halt was called on proceedings.

The only benefit was, we got back to shelter before the rain hit.

There is always next time !

You gotta have Sole !

The results 

1st Martin Gosden - 1lb 11oz

2nd Arthur Freeman - 1lb 1oz

3rd Gary Ray Man Rumsey - 5oz

A surprisingly tough nights fishing with only 4 sizeable fish caught. However the bonus was the first Sole of the year (in a bexhill club competition).

Well done Martin on catching 50% of the fish.  A good result for a great angler.

Clean Sweep for Clive

The results

1st - Clive Ford - 9lb  5oz

2nd - Martin Gosden - 5lb 13oz

3rd Arthur Freeman - 2lb 7oz

In general a good nights fishing, with a few Smoothound showing up as darkness fell. For some of us that meant the very last moment of the last cast.

Clive and Martin both had smoothounds with the biggest being 7 1/2 lbs.

Smooth Martins Starry Success

The results

1st - Martin Gosden - 13lb  7oz

2nd - John Histen- 8lb 2oz

3rd Steve Hanks - 1lb 9oz

It was a breezy night with a coloured sea, which made it more of a surprise that hounds showed up for some of the competitors.

First of all John beat the club Starry smoothound record and within minutes Martin topped it again with a fish of 7lb 10oz.

Could there be a wooden spoon award waiting ?  :o)

Its been a hard days night 

The results 

1st John Histed - 3lb 3oz

2nd Martin Gosden - 1lb 1oz

3rd not won

A difficult nights fishing, that really switched on after the competition was over. Pleasure anglers caught bass and smoothound at high tide which was just after our competition ended.  A BIG well done to a tired looking John and Martin who both managed to find a fish.
