Dave Mann Diamond Jubilee competition results

With a particularly poor turn out, just 5 anglers took to Kents beaches on Saturday 3rd June for the Herons' Diamond Jubilee competition.  
In this event, anglers may fish any Kent beach of their choice (excluding venues where a fee is payable i.e. Samphire Hoe, Deal pier etc) but must be back to the club house within the allotted time. 
Those who did take part, spread far and wide to try and find the fish but across the 9hrs the fishing proved to be decidedly poor. 
D. Morris had the heaviest fish of the day from Dovers' Shakespeare beach, a dogfish of 1lbs 15oz whilst K. Wilton found one from Walmer beach too. 
In the end though the final hour spent at Ramsgate undercliff paid dividends for M. Morris who took 4 dogfish and an eel from the mark for the win. 

Full results as follows;
1st- M. Morris, 5 fish, 5lbs 15.2oz
2nd- D. Morris, 1 fish, 1lbs 15oz
3rd- K. Wilton, 1 fish, 1lbs 6oz
