Bill and I set off on a fine warm morning, to what hopefully would be a good turnout and match, although we knew of quite a few who had other matches to attend
We were not disappointed as 35 guyÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s, ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œand meÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢, turned up in fine spirits, eager to fish this very popular low water venue.
Dabs at distance were the target with a few plaice, flounder and Gurnard for those fishing in the margins.
However the unexpected often happens (thatÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s fishing) as John McKiddie pulled in a 5.440kg Smoothound on his 1st cast followed by Bill Lindfield with one of 4.820kg followed by another of 4.220kg on his 2nd cast and with the 13 Dabs to go with them put Bill in 1st place but was followed hotly by Morecambe angler David Hutchinson with 2 smoothounds and 11 Dabs.
This part of the Rock Channel has never produced Smoothounds before and gave us all something to reflect on whilst I worked out the results.
I would like to thank everyone for the raffle, Phil House and those lovely bronzed legs for pegging the venue, Ian and Michael Brookes for running a fish pool and selling tickets also to everyone attending especially Paul Short who had travelled over from the east coast.
