The Humber Bank Wall, around the Stallingborough area, will be back in full use very shortly. At present you can walk to your mark at the moment, but you are unable to get your vehicle to your peg. The sea defence maintenance has been going on all summer and they have done a fantastic job in providing a brilliant fishing platform. It is hoped that there may be some sort of match to celebrate the opening of the wall again. I must stress that when the wall is open again we all must work together to try and keep it looking clean and tidy.
As one door opens another slams shut! One of the favourite marks for local anglers is now out of limits for everyone. Fishing on the North Wall Grimsby has been stopped completely. There are barriers up at the entrance of the docks and fishing is no longer permitted on this excellent venue.
A couple of anglers fished around the Yellow Cross area and they had a few codling which bodes well for coming season. Cod have been taken off the beaches at East Halton. With the temperature falling and bigger tides this weekend the cod and whiting fishing should pick up.
Humber SAC were in action at Killingholme last weekend and it was Simon Drayton, fresh from a foray to the Irish pairs who landed a bag weighing 5lb 12oz to win the match. Simon’s catch four pounds in front of the next angler, club Chairman Nigel Crabtree. Nigel had a total weight of 1lb 11oz this included the biggest flatfish of the day a 35cm flounder. Third place went to Dave Burr with 1¼lb.
This Sunday it is the Bev Wright memorial match and it is an open match. The fishing times are 5pm to 9pm please meet at the Tioxide gate.
