The Heron's Old Rules boat competition went ahead on Sunday 8th September with 8 members taking part in 4 boats.
A kind of 'fun' competition whereby anglers
must row their boats to their mark and back within the allocated 4 hours of
competition and only 1 rod each is allowed but up to 4 hooks.
increasing SW wind rowing out was ok but the thought of rowing back against it
put most off going too far.
K. Grove however, a seasoned rowing enthusiast in
a very suitable boat, pushed himself a bit further than the other members taking
part. This proved very fruitful for Keith as he was the only competitor to weigh
in a catch and easily won the event.
Others reported missed bites, one boat
went in very early due to pesky crabs and weed and I could only manage a lowly
undersized bass but Keith had a bass of 2.12lbs as well as 2 dogfish and a
1st- K. Grove, 4fish, 5.80lbs
