On Saturday 7th August the club held its 4th competition fishing out from Poole. With light winds eighteen club members boarded three charter boats which were "Mistress Linda" "Blue Duo" and "Boney M". All three headed out into Poole Bay where "Boney M" headed for a mark called The Half Bank. Here spotted and undulate rays, smoothhounds and dogfish were caught.
Meanwhile "Mistress Linda" and "Blue Duo" anchored on a rocky mark where wrasse, pouting, conger eels, mackerel and a number of mini species were caught. Sadly with the wind increasing all the boats returned to Poole Harbour to fish and here we were hampered by squally showers which made fishing difficult, but we still managed to catch plaice, bass, gurnards and flounders. In total twenty-eight different species of fish were caught between the three boats.Results by Boat.Mistress Linda

On Saturday 17th July the club held its 3rd competition fishing out from Lymington. Eighteen club members boarded three charter boats in Lymington Haven Marina which were "Devocean", "Voyager" and "Last laugh". Weather conditions were ideal with a flat calm sea and sunshine. All the boats went out past Hurst Castle to various marks on the Shingle Bank to catch as many different species as possible in the allocated time of six hours. After six hours on the way back to port the scores were added up with each skipper hoping that their boat had landed the most species. Skipper Kevin Duell of "Voyager" was very pleased with 21 different species as was Kevin Sampson of "Devocean" who also had 21 and John Skeggs skipper of "Last Laugh" with 18 species. Over all on the three charter boats a total of 30 different species of fish were caught and all returned to the sea alive. Notable fish caught on the day and returned to the sea. Richard Day an undulate ray, Chris Ellis a ballan wrasse, Ed Taylor a bass, Paul Hollyoake a spotted ray, Cliff Newbold a plaice and John Bellamy a red gurnard.Results by Boat.Devocean
