12 September: A maiden voyage on club member Pete’s new raider 18 provided great sport over the banks with Pete catching and releasing his first ever Blonde Ray which was a lovely catch and Johnny had a fine Turbot of 38cm among numerous other flatties and rays.

On the way ashore they switched over to the squid hooks and quickly picked up a few squid for evening tea. A very enjoyable trip and quite a few “small boats” appearing at the marina now and maybe a few small boats species comps in the pipeline on the bay ahead.

08 September: Last of the summer league club outings took place last night in lovely conditions and with the evenings drawing in now giving more darkness and cover for the fish. Some lovely flounder to 35cm on the ebb tide and a hard fighting pollack of 48cm before the dogs came on the prowl towards the end of the comp.
