With the weather remaining cold and icy, there was little hope of decent catches for the 10 anglers who took part in the Heron's Osman Cup beach competition on Sunday 7th April.
We were however, all pleasantly surprised to find the wind
had dropped and the sun was shining for the early morning start. Four members
weighed in catches of flounders, all from Studd Hill, with those fishing
Reculver and Bishopstone marks all blanking.
P.Thornton's run of good luck
seems to have come to an end for now with K. Grove picking up all 12 points to
move within 1pt of the current leader.
T. Morris had the heaviest fish at 0.62lb
winning him the £10 pool.
Results as follows:
1st - K. Grove, 2 fish,
2nd - T. Morris, 1 fish, 0.62lb
3rd - D. Smith, 1fish,
4th - L. Perry-French, 1 fish, 0.36lb (junior)
Next beach comp
is the Jackson cup to be fished at Deal on May 19th, meeting outside Deal
Angling Club at 1345hrs.
