A forecast of conditions starting reasonable and then becoming excellent resulted in an entry of 31 boat anglers entering Bembridge Angling Clubs recent Open Bass Competition. A European Union legal restriction allowing only one Bass per angler to be retained per day meant that the competition was for the heaviest fish rather than the gross weight of a number of fish.

The neap tide combined with good calm sea conditions meant that competitors tried their luck at a widely spread number of locations.

Martin Dye took the Challen Building & Renovations sponsored first place prize of £150 with an excellent specimen of 8 lbs 8 ozs

Oliver Grimaldi took the £100 second place prize with a fish of 8 lbs 0ozs

Derek Ohren took the £50 third place  prize with a fish of 6 lbs 9 ½ ozs (No photo as he had to leave prior to the prize presentation.)
