For the past few weeks it has all been doom and gloom. There has been little to report in the way of fish. The only species putting in an appearance have been dabs and flounders. However things have picked up with Spurn Road being the hot spot. As well as good bags of fish double figure specimens have figured in the catches.
There have also been improved results from the boats with the HCA big fish match producing more cod than in previous weeks and several double figure fish were among those landed.
The Creek has proved the place to be for flounders with Humber SAC enjoying an excellent turn out for their latest outing. A succession of double shots of the flatties saw George Smith the run away winner ahead of Mark Taylor and third placed Adie Cooper.
The match angler’s are now focussed on the European Open which takes place at Bridlington on the 26th to the 28th, fingers crossed that the cod will return for the match.
