'over-the-low' trophy results

Sunday 2nd July saw the return of the Herons' beach competitions with the 'over-the-low' trophy. 
6 members took to the very hot and sunny beaches, skeptical that any would weigh in despite the Bass ban being lifted to one per angler from the 1st of July. 
In the end however, 3 did manage to find fish and weigh in sizeable catches. M. Morris was fishing near Bishopstone point and amongst a reported 7 undersized bass, brought back a healthy eel of 1lbs 2.4oz. 
Meanwhile, B. Morris, fishing near middle bank at reculver managed a small hound pup of 1lbs 5.4oz and lost a bigger one at the waters edge. S. Stephenson made the most of his only hook up from the same spot though and landed a smoothhound of 3lbs 13.4oz for the win. 

Full results as follows; 
1st- S. Stephenson, 1 fish, 3lbs 13.4oz
2nd- B. Morris, 1 fish, 1lbs 5.4oz
3rd- M. Morris, 1 fish, 1lbs 2.4oz
