Beach Match – Dunwich

Braintree Sea Angling Club members headed to Dunwich for their latest evening match in the Summer League. With a light drizzle and offshore winds when they arrived thing didn’t look to bad but as the evening progressed heavy rain descended and made the fishing uncomfortable. To add to their discomfort the fish didn’t like the rain either and the first couple of hours saw only a couple caught. Despite a variety of baits being used they were not tempted and It remained slow until the end of the match. Paul Drake took the first place with 149 fish points from a catch of 4 sole, 1 smoothhound and an eel. He also had the best fish a sole of 34cm. Second place went to Barrie Senior with 5 sole and 2 smoothhounds for 108 points. Third spot went t Robin Joy with 2 sole for 46 points. The other anglers failed to find sizeable fish.
