Humber SAC were doing what they best at last week; and that’s fishing. The conditions were hard and first placed Simon Drayton weighed in 1lb 1/2oz followed by Dave Burr with 14oz and Adie Cooper in third with 12oz.
The club’s next match is this Sunday at Humberston Creek one of the few places which is actually producing a few fish. But with a horrible forecast for Sunday it could be hard going. The match times are 1pm to 5pm. Meet at the car park.
Over the water it was Tom and Mackey’s match on a very cold night at Chalky Point, temperature were so low the bait was actually freezing. Twenty-two flounders were landed by eight anglers with top spot going to Chris Mack who measured eight fish for 228cm. Second placed Chris Wray had four fish for 120cm and Daisy Broughton four for 114cm. The biggest flatfish was caught by Jody Lemm at 33cm.
Anglers have been frustrated this week by the weather and also the lack of fish, it is hoped after this cold spell that the fish will return and in good numbers. Boats that went out last weekend really struggled find any thing. Whiting made up most of the catches.
There is a pairs match scheduled for the HCA this Sunday but I doubt whether this will take place with strong North easterly winds forecast . The weather has stopped the boats from going out in the week. Lets hope the weather eases and the fish come back in.
