There was a good turn-out for the latest event staged by the Exmouth Sea An gling Association.
THE Exmouth Sea Angling Association held their annual Carnival Shield last week, writes Tim Clotworthy.
The event was held from Rodney Bay to Sandy Bay, Exmouth with the competition lasting for two hours either side of low water.
Fourteen members took part in the event and, amongst the competitors were two juniors with one of them being one of the latest people to join the club, Josh Maunder.
The weather conditions were good and, although there was a lot of weed in the water, when the tide turned most members caught fish.
The bulk of the catch were small bass with successful sea anglers either using surface and mid water plugs or bottom fishing with lug worm and crab baits.
At the weigh-in there were only four fish of any note in terms of size. Two of them were caught by Club Secretary, Si Boeree and that was good enough for him to claim first place.
Paul Rowe, who landed a three pound bass, took second place and another to land a respectable bass, Tony McGinty, was third.
