You should be aware that, as your Publicity Officer, I am constrained by a directive from the committee to not publicise individual catches except as part of reporting competition results or in the case of Island or National records.
This is primarily to avoid the chance of commercial fishermen exploiting the information for their own gain to the detriment of club members.

30-12-20: Cod & Whiting Specimen

A fortunate last minute change of date, due to forecasts, enabled the scheduled Cod and Whiting comp to go ahead prior to the January Covid-19 lockdown prohibiting all angling activity.

Excellent weather conditions saw 22 anglers signing on in hopes of catching the best specimen.

Unfortunately no Cod were returned to the scales despite reports of their capture in days prior to the comp.

It was, therefore, left down to the best specimen whiting and even good specimens of them were hard to find with only 8 being brought to the scales.

1st Andy Ellis 2lb 10oz Whiting

2nd Callum Smith 1lb 9oz.Whiting

3rd Ryan Wyatt 1lb 4.5oz Whiting.
