At the moment the fishing is in the doldrums. On the Tuesday’s pier/beach match you definitely needed a plan to find a sizable fish or two. The majority of the anglers decided on the pier, with the thoughts of specialising in either smooth hounds, or down the side for pouts. Those on the beach opted for the rarity of even getting a bite.

It started off well for Dave Andrews when his first drop down by the pier piles produced a Pollack. Dave then battled it out with Saul Page on the pouting, however, when they went off the feed Saul managed to catch two dogs to boost his winning catch to 17 fish for 3.210kg. Without those dogs it was calculated that he would have only just beat Dave’s weight by 10g, whose overall bag was 2.120kg. Brian Smith stuck at it, in his attempt to catch a smooth hound and ended up with a pup of 770g. This was enough to secure him third place and heaviest fish. Fourth and fifth places went to Darren Janmam, 560g, and Alan Underdown with 320g.

Roll on autumn …

August has allways been a slow month in Deal, but that was really poor, i thought we might have seen a few scad and only one pollock really shows how there numbers have declined. still it was a really pleasant evening shirt sleaves to the end.

One good sign for the future there were lots of undersize 4 and 5 inch pouting under the pier - mind you last night they were a real pain filling up the hooks at times.
