ESAAs Paul Rowe winner of the May meeting


The Exmouth Sea Angling Association May League meeting was held at Branscombe, writes Robert Pennells.

The sea was coloured, but proved fishable and there was a good turnout by members and guests for the event.

Paul Rowe was into an early smoothound of around 4lb in weight during daylight and he went on to catch another three smoothound’s and four dogfish to net a comfortable win.

Ken Williams took second place with a smoothound and also landed a brace of dogfish.

In third place was Dave Thoburn with a dogfish.

All fish caught in the event were returned safely back to the seas.
