Summertime competitions can be very frustrating for the rank and file match angler. The extended daylight hours and clear water make the fish more cautious and sometimes the only chance of catching is to be able to ‘clip it and whack it’. Bait is always an important factor and the top anglers go out of their way to find what the fish can be tempted on when the conditions are difficult. Combining all these things make the top match anglers consistent in their discipline and prizes.

Last nights beach comp was fished over low water from 7pm till 10pm. My only bites of the match happened at quarter to ten and five minutes after that, just as it was getting dark. The two dogs that I caught saved me from a blank. However, Alan Underdown, also fishing from the Kingsdown stretch was bagging-up dogs, with a total of 15 for 8.970kg. For the rest of the 13 competitors it was not quite as productive, although Steve Hackett’s second place with 4.200kg was respectable as was Dave Andrews’ 3.090kg. Fourth and fifth places went to Tim Flagg, 2.250kg, and John Chalk’s 2.090kg. Dogfish were the predominate species brought to the scales with the heaviest fish of 850g being caught by Alan Underdown and Dave Andrews dog of 790g took the flatfish pool, as none were caught.
