This is a two hook, bait supplied competition fishing for Haddock and Cod.
At close of entry we only have 18 attendees. As you can appreciate this event is very tight on funds so this is what the committee recommend.
We have to run with 3 boats due to the boats only taking 6 or 7 anglers.
To stage the event without causing the section a big loss we will only issue Pins. There will be no overall prizes or Trophies apart from the winners name going onto the main Trophy.
Regarding the team events and longest fish, there will be a £5 charge for each category (4 Man Open, 2 Man Open, 4 Man Drawn and Longest Cod) . This will be for first place only and 100% pay out in Weymouth Angling Centre gift vouchers, which will be topped up 20% by WAC.
The Fishing will be for Cod & Haddock , the Haddock have been very scarce the past few years but the Cod are there in good numbers. We will keep it to these two species as this is what the event has been advertised as.
Matt and Gary are having a practise in 3 weeks time and will give a full report on the fishing, tactics, etc
The Cod mainly come to Lures and all anglers will receive Squid.
I think that just about covers it.
