HAS Autumn Festival Results

Superb, flat calm conditions on all three days greeted the 14 anglers who took part in the Heron Angling Society's Autumn Boat festival.
Whiting was the obvious contender to make up the vast bulk of the catches and with 630.44lbs of fish being brought to the scales in total they were certainly about along with dabs, pouting and dogfish. 

The fishing was patchy however, with some usually prolific marks producing poorly at times.
There were no notably large individual fish caught but T. Morris accounted for a decent haul of 130 fish on the Monday for 69.84lbs. G.Mummery and M. Morris also had good consistent catches over the three days averaging 75 fish each.
Although i couldn't weigh it in, the highlight for me personally was a good sized edible crab topping the scales at 3.10lbs!
