Match Report – Aldeburgh – 18th March

Aldeburgh was the venue for Braintree Sea Angling Club’s latest match.  An offshore wind and flat sea made the fishing fairly easy.  Throughout the day a steady stream of small whiting were landed with a few dabs and  an occasional little codling plus a couple of flounders also being caught.  Barrie Senior took top spot with his catch of 18 whiting, 2 codling, 7 dabs and 2 flounders for 275 fish points.  18 whiting, 1 codling and 2 dabs for 189 points gave Paul Drake second place.  Third place went to Robin Joy with 10 whiting and 5 dabs for 162 points.

Match Report – Orfordness – 4th March 2012

Our latest match coincided with a change in the weather.  Constant rain was the order of the day over on Orford island as the anglers laboured against the elements in their battle to find some cod.  However, the fish seemed also to be put of by the weather as only a few pin whiting, dabs and three very small codling were caught.  The bedraggled anglers checked results back on the quay and it was Paul Drake’s bag of 5 dabs, 3 whiting and a codling that won the day with 112 points.  Barrie Senior took second spot with 9 whiting and a codling for 107 points.   Third place went to Robin Joy with 5 whiting and a codling for 86 points.
