We had a good turnout of 30 anglers for the first match of 2009, including a lady and a junior.

The weather has been calm and frosty for 3 weeks now, but as soon as we get our rods out there are 30 - 40 mph Westerlies, which made things pretty uncomfortable! Evil or Very Mad

We fished from 19-00 until 23-00, with high water at around 22-30, so hopes of Whiting and Dabs were high.

As the match progressed, the phone calls along the match length became more frequent with reports of some small Dabs and Rockling for a select few, but not a single Whiting was reported by anyone, even under size!

Several anglers gave up before the end, and many more couldn’t bear to attend the weigh in to see how badly they had done!

The match was won by Shaun Rodenhurst with a Dab of .33kgs.

He had a Rockling weighing .14kgs,

which was the same weigh as my Dab, which only just made the 23 cm size limit!

Mitch was fifth with 2 slugs for .13kgs.

Gary Bates 6th with one slug weighing .10kgs, and Alan Illman was 7th with a little one of .06kgs. The rest blanked, only 8 of the 30 anglers managed to catch fish big enough to bring to the scales! Embarassed

Sue and Pete Price were top team with their third and fourth places.

Our next match is at Prestatyn on Sunday 25th January. Fishing from 15-00 until 19-00 and booking in at the sailing club carpark before 14-30. You will need to bring extra money for the carparks, as the pay and display machines are in operation all year round! You have been warned!

Lets hope people dont drive off early while latecomers are still arriving next time otherwise you will all be looking for a new section organiser! His words not mine!

I hope there werent too many people put off by the weather and the lack of fish. It would be great to see this many at the future matches, as i think there will be a lot more fish at the next 3.

Lets hope the good numbers carry over to the summer league as well!
