Iris Boat Competition results

In a fairly poor turn out, just 6 Heron’s set out for this years Iris Boat Competition on Sunday 3rd June. 
Despite blazing sunshine on leaving the beach, most of the event was shrouded in fog with a light NE breeze. 
On the whole, fishing was slow but some reasonable fish were still brought to the scales. A. Wood had the biggest of the day, a smooth-hound of 7lbs 7oz closely followed with one of 7lbs 2oz for B. Morris. 
Also landed were skate, dogfish and dutifully returned bass. 
Along with his hound, Andy won the event with 11 fish for 32lbs 3.2oz. 

Full results as follows;
1st- A. Wood, 11 fish, 32lbs 3.2oz
2nd- B. Morris, 9 fish, 29lbs 4.6oz
3rd- D. Neiles, 17 fish, 26lbs 10oz
4th- T. Morris, 7 fish, 18lbs 9.8oz
5th- C. Zacharia, 9 fish, 11lbs 11.6oz
6th- S. Mannering, 4 fish, 4lbs 15.8oz
