A great match yesterday on Benone strand

A great match yesterday on Benone strand. Most people had some luck and I even got in on the prizes though missed getting my mugshot taken! Our recorder Barry Platt gives the full rundown. Next match is on Waterfoot in 3 weeks time.

Harry McKee, Secretary.

Daiwa shore league match day 6.

Venue: Benone

Tide and conditions: Fishing a full drop with a medium surf. Weather was mild and blustery.

Species caught: Flounder, turbot, bass, dogfish, spurdogs and whiting.

Benone is a marmite venue but for some reason we always get a good turnout at it.

Yesterday was a strange day with a few little spurdogs caught amongst the usual subjects which were actually there for a change.
