Subject - Plaice Competition Results

After two cancellations the Plaice Competition finally went ahead. Due to the weather the Comp was only fished on Sunday 8th Oct. And what a lovely day it was, with a light breeze, blue skies, and plenty of fish caught.

The winner with a Plaice of 2lb 2.8oz was Steve Cowell. Steve caught this fish using a cocktail of baits in Budleigh Bay. Runner up went to Carolyn Whiting with a Plaice of 1lb 15oz. Both were fishing from my boat “Our Molly”. Good Skipper!! 3rd place went to John Astill with a fish of 1lb 10.8oz, closely followed by the Accumulator Competition Series winner Steve Marks. Both were fishing from John’s boat “Js Pleasure”.
The next three places were separated by just 1 ounce. I had a Plaice of 1lb 7.6oz, followed by Pete Harris 1lb 7.2oz, fishing from his own boat “Lazy Fisher”, and finally Russell Thompson's token gesture of 1lb 6.4oz, caught on "Louisa". Bill Searles, "Louisa", did catch a few Plaice as well, but it was a pretty quiet day for Captain Bill.

Russ, Bill, and Carolyn, also caught 4 Small-Eyed Rays between them, (5-7 lb, weighed on board, and all returned for another day). You soon know when you have one of these hooked up. Returning Skate is a good idea, as not too many fishermen are ever willing to prepare a Skate for eating a second time.

Some other species were reeled aboard as well, including Ballan Wrasse, Gurnards, Dab, Dogfish, Mackerel, and even a Squid on "Our Molly" too.

Overall, it was an excellent days fishing to finish the season on. WELL DONE EVERYONE.
