Flounder Open 3rd January 2022.
On Bank Holiday Monday 3rd January the club held its shore Flounder Open competition. The weather for the day was dry with a strong south-west wind blowing at the start of the competition, but happily it eased as the competition progressed.
44 anglers signed on which was a very good turn-out in these difficult times. All had high hopes of catching the exclusive flounder which sadly over the last few years has declined.
Fishing was very slow throughout the day with only 9 sizeable fish caught. 3 flounders, 5 bass and 1 rockling. As it is a flounder competition when weighing in flounder take precedence over all other fish.
