The Win-Sum league is now in full swing as the fishing vastly improved on the second round of the LDSFC Win-Sum League. Everything about round 2 was better than the first, better weather, more anglers fishing and a greater number of fish caught.
Hordle Cliff was the venue for this bait-supplied fixture with a lot of excitement due to the anticipation of rays we could catch after many recent reports in the area. All anglers were supplied with ragworm, 2 mackerel and a small amount of squid, this had to last them the whole match.
Fishing began at 8pm with the majority of anglers targeting rays and dogfish from the start. It took a while for a fish to be recorded, almost an hour in fact until Paul Watson landed a small ray of 55cm. Minutes later Toby Oldfield was into a much bigger fish, a undulate ray that was also hi PB and first ever over 10lb.
The fishing from the other sections hadn’t been as productive but sure enough as the match went on reports filtered up the beach, there had been other big rays, dogfish and whiting. One of these reports was Nick Hayter’s ray of 95cm the longest fish of the night , Nick also have the longest overall length of any angler on the night. There weren’t any flat fish caught so the pool will be awarded to Toby Oldfield with the second longest round fish.
In stark contrast to the first round there had been several rays landed as well as a number of dogfish with other fish such as whiting thrown in for good measure, the next round will be fished at Southbourne on Wednesday 30th May.
