Back on the sand this week and down to Overstrand beach which is fast becoming one of our favourite venues. For the first time pegging this week was to the left of the slip and 14 of us lined up to see what was about. At the last match here, a few dogfish were caught so that was many people’s target species. With it being a length only match and everything over 18cm counting you certainly couldn’t ignore the whiting and dabs.
It was a slow start for many but eventually the fish came on the feed and everyone found a few.
Adrian tops the lot at Overstrand Beach
Top of the heap this week was Adrian Bordianu with 17 fish measuring 370cm, second spot went to the ever-consistent Leon Smith with 14 fish for 332cm, final podium spot went to Ian Childerhouse who measured 256cm.
Biggest flat tonight was shared between Adrian and Leon both with a 27cm dab and biggest round went to Dene Conway with his dogfish of 58cm. Several dogs were caught all along the match stretch. Even our illustrious leader Dean Gibson who historically hates fishing on the sand managed to stay for a full match.
Well done to all who fished, next week we are back on the shingle at Kelling where there have been plenty of dabs, whiting, pouts and dogfish coming out. Ragworm and squid have been doing the damage for some.
Please book in early especially with bait orders.
