The second shore match of the season took place on Saturday 16th January and this time it was a “rover”, meaning anglers could fish any venue within the club waters. The clear skies, little or no wind, and calm seas made the fishing much more enjoyable. The target was Cod and most of the thirteen competitors opted to fish West Bexington, with a few heading to Cogden and Hive beaches. Although nobody managed to catch the target species, the anglers were kept busy with some nice sized whiting, pout, poor cod, and dogfish.
A few fish were large enough to be weighed in for specimen awards which run throughout the year. Nick Stuparyk weighed in a whiting of 402 grams, Rob Emery, a pout of 549 grams, and Wayne Burgess, a dogfish of 885 grams.
The results have now been updated on the club website under the results heading (shore league section) on the home page.
