17 anglers, including 1 junior fished the first leg of the 2010 Winter league at Tan Lan.

With calm seas, many of the competitors chose to wade out before casting to maximise the distance they could achieve, this tactic yielded very few in size Whiting with the odd Dab and Rockling brought to the scales by the lead chuckers.

Tonights killer tactic was to cast short, especially if you could get a spot next to one of the stone groynes.

The match winner was reigning Winter league champion........ me, with a bag of 18 Rockling and a Sea Scorpion for a weight of 1.62 Kgs.

My team mate did his share with a dozen Rockling and a Whiting for 1.14Kgs and second position. Well done Daddy!

Third place went to Billy McLintock with 3 Whiting and 6 Rockling and Gary Bates took fourth with 9 slugs.

Congratulations to 9 year old Thomas Davies who was fishing his first match. He caught a Flounder and a Dab to finish 10th overall and top junior, but boosted his pocket money as the Flounder was the heaviest fish of the match weighing 0.26Kgs.

Here are the official results.

17 members, old and new, turned up for the first match of the new year. For once the weather was kind to us, after the last couple of weeks of snow and ice it was almost tropical, with no wind and a nice calm sea.

We started a couple of hours before low water, fishing 2 down and 2 up. Those who opted for casting out for whiting found it hard going, with in-size fish few and far between, while the ones fishing at close range near the stone groynes were finding rockling from the start.

Fifteen weighed in eventually, with last year`s winter league winner Kev Jones weighing 18 rockling and a sea scorpion for 1.62 kgs and 1st place.

2nd was his dad Terry Jones, with 12 rockling and a whiting for 1.14. Bill Mclintock took 3rd with 6 rockling and 3 whiting for 1.09, and 4th prize went to Gary Bates with 9 rockling for 0.90. Paul Jones was 5th with 0.84, and Mike Peters 6th with 0.80.

The junior prize went to 9 year old Thomas Davies, fishing his first match, he caught a flounder and a dab for 0.39 kgs., the flounder also taking the heaviest fish prize at 0.26 kgs.

No ladies took part, and top team were Kev and Terry with 73 points.
