21 anglers fished the fourth match, with many of us not expecting to catch anything, nevermind weigh in.
We headed straight out from the Arches, and as everyone else was casting as far as they could, i decided to employ some tactics.
Three hook rig, size 6 hooks with small worm baits, dropped against the side of the rock groyne. A slug hunt!
It worked straight away too. I dropped one first cast, then had a single then a double within the first half hour. The tide was still ebbing, and it was still daylight!
Mitch, who was the other side of the groyne, cottoned on to my tactics, and against all his principles, joined in, as did Terry a little later on, and then Blaster.
The fishing was steady right through the match, although it did slow down on the flood which was surprising, but there couldnt have been many Rockling left by then!
The match winner was Mitch, with 21 Rockling for 1.82 Kgs.
Terry was second with 17 for 1.75 Kgs. He had some decent fish, including a belter of 7 ounces but the time spent casting out probably cost him the win!
I had 19 smaller ones for 1.53 Kgs and third spot.
John Jones had spent the whole match casting sandeel as far as he could and he kept saying there was a Dog out there with his name on it. Fair dos! Last cast he went and caught it, which saved a bit of messing about looking for the heaviest fish, and along with his several slugs, took fourth place.
Me and Mitch are joint top of the league going into the final match, im just ahead on weight. Blaster is third but is missing the final match, so hopefully we all blank next week, and things stay the same!

I only managed one photie with the clubs new camera, due to the number of fish.
The light in the centre is Mitch. I should have plenty of time for photies at the next match though!
