Twenty five members fished the Cod Boat competition that was held on Sunday 5th July.
Conditions were difficult and all the anglers had to cope with rising winds and very fast drifts during most of the day – this made it very hard to keep contact with the sea bed.
26 cod were caught and the winner was Alan Varney( fishing on Pegasus) who weighed in a fish of 2,635gms (5.80lbs). Second was Richard Saxby( fishing on Amaretto1V) with a cod of 2,600gms(5.72lbs). Third was Lewis Hodder (Skipper of Alice Rose) with a cod of 2,528gms (5.57lbs).
There was one other notable fish caught by Gary Wylde (fishing on Alice Rose) who caught a club boat seasons best Ballan Wrasse of 1,445gms (3.18lbs).
