Accumulator boat competition results

Despite the spiteful Easterly wind, eleven anglers set out on Sunday 10th April for the accumulator boat competition. 
The accumulator gets its name as prize money is awarded on a sliding scale through the final standings but money is deducted based on attendance and passed on to the next placed entrant. 
With their recent abundance, skate were top of the agenda but also present were the usual whiting and dogfish. 
In excess of 20 skate were brought to the scales but only one was a notable size with the majority small male fish. 
M. Morris won the heavy fish pool with his ray of 9lbs 9.6oz and along with 5 more thornbacks also claimed 1st place. 
Brother, T. Morris was 2nd and D. Perry 3rd both with 3 rays a piece, all three competitors fished at the pier head.
