Another good turnout considering the conditions, a cold North Easterly and the chance of rain and sleet according to the forecast!
18 of us started the match at various points along the prom, but it soon became clear that rockling were the only fish around, so the ones with a rock groyne or a patch of rough ground nearby had the advantage.
After 4 hours only 7 had fish to weigh, with Dave Elmer and Norman Dorling tying for first place on 0.36 kgs., Dave with 6 and Norman with 4 rockling, Mark Patterson took 3rd place with 5 rockling and a sea scorpion ( the only fish other than rockling to be weighed in ) for a weight of 0.32. 4th was John Jones with 0.28, and 5th Mark Hill with 0.24, Bill McLintock and Allan Illman were the other 2 weighers with a rockling each, and the heaviest one of the night earned a tenner for Mark Hill, a specimen of 0.17, or 0-05-12 in old money.
No ladies or juniors took part, and top team were Dave and Mark with 71 points.
