3 day Boat Festival 2012 results

Near gale force Northerly winds on Saturday 27th October meant the Heron Angling Society had to call off the first day of the three day annual boat festival but thankfully the weather relented for the Sunday and Monday and the competition went ahead.
With 12 anglers fishing from 6 boats in all, bags were made up of mainly whiting although not the numbers usually associated with this festival of previous years. Other catches included dogfish and dabs with a couple of pouting showing on Monday too. The highlight of the festival was a 5.34lbs codling caught by S. Mummery fishing at the Woolpack on Sunday but larger cod and skate eluded us all.
