Last 2½hrs of flood fishing over the top of the tide on a warm cloudy day with bright spells in the late afternoon. There was some long distance swell developing but only slight with the south westerly breeze.
Dave Hambley was on Marine Drive for a single mop, I went to Sandsend slipway for a bass but only managed 1 single sized flat fish with plenty of undersized returned.
Colin Stainthorpe won the match from Hawsker, 3 fish in first three casts all returned as undersized. With a couple more later in the match, ending up with two, 3 lb & 2½ lb.
Ben Laws was fishing up north in the Penn Sea League Final, so missed the match, as did James Gilpin.
