large & shallow Boat competition results

Large Boats.  On Sunday the club held its 1st Large Boat competition of their 2021 season aboard Art Savage's charter boat Private Venture who headed to a mark west of the Needles.  A keen northerly breeze was mitigated to some degree later on by some welcome sunshine, and the day remained dry.  Fish came in steadily throughout the day, including rays, some decent sized whiting and dogfish.  Jumbo pout was a welcome addition, but, as usual, strap congers were a constant nuisance, ruining the prospects of contacting the cod, which remained as elusive as ever.
Results: 1st Arran Harmer 87pts, 2nd Derek Smith79pts, 3rd Roland Blomfield 50pts, 4th mark Duncan 46pts, 5th Alec Harmer 41pts.
