Winter Shield 10 : 9th March 4pm-8pm : Harbour Walls
The latest leg of the winter shield was a bit of a contrast to previous legs with only a few coalies being caught, the slip on Mooragh Prom was the chosen spot for eventual winner Mark Quirk who had a bag of whiting and two Dogfish, the rest of the beach anglers struggled to get sizable fish with lots of undersize Whiting and Codling showing up, and a solitary Coalie falling to George Dugdale of 13oz enough for the round fish pool.
The pier anglers who headed off to the pegs reserved for the pensioners, also struggled to get sizable fish early in the comp, with only a few sizable whiting showing up once it was dark and a couple of dogs in the last hour, allowing Ian “The Pier” Ashcroft to come in second just two points behind Quirk, Ian also shared the Dogfish pool with Colin Quayle each with a dog of 1lb 8oz.
It was good to see club member Paul Graham back out fishing after his very lucky escape after a boating accident. He was taking no chances this week though, by donning a brand new floatation suit, just in case the pier sank.
