D&WAA Beach Competition: Sunday, 5th March 2017

Report by Dave Chamberlain

Competitors in Sunday's Deal & Walmer Angling Association beach match were diverted from Walmer Gardens to north Deal because of adverse weather conditions. With a fresh south to south-westerly wind and rain it was decided that the change of venue would be more comfortable to fish. It did not put off the 18 entrants as they fished the rising tide sheltered behind brollies and bivvys. Winner with three dogs and a couple of whiting for 2.010 kg was Alan Underdown. Close behind him with six fish - which included the heaviest fish in the match, a dog of 0.900 kg - was Dave Andrews, for a total weight of 1.930 kg. Graham King's three dogs at 1.320 kg landed him third position. As no flats were caught, Underdown took the pool with the second heaviest fish which was a dog of 0.680 kg.

D&WAA Beach Competition: Sunday, 5th February 2017

Report by Dave Chamberlain

The weather forecasters got it wrong, yet again, when Storm Doris made its non appearance. Members of the Deal & Walmer Angling Association were hoping that it might have brought about some fish in its aftermath. Their combined daylight and darkness match, in Sandwich Bay, was held at the weekend from 3pm till 7pm. Even with the cold north east wind the comp attracted 19 members who realised the conditions would be hard with not many fish showing. However, their perseverance paid off with dabs, whiting and rockling for Steve Swan to find the winning weight of 0.550 kg. Second and third places went to Martin Jenkins' 0.430 kg and Dave Andrews' 0.310 kg.

D&WAA Beach Competition: Sunday, 8th January 2017

Report by Dave Chamberlain

The first D&WAA beach match of the year fished from north Deal and attracted 19 anglers. Conditions were good with a light wind and high water just before 8pm. Target species were whiting with dogs to make up the weight. The sea temperature has not cooled enough to put the fish on the feed and triple shots were the name of the game, although getting sizable fish was hard. Dabs made a good show and were in equal numbers to sizable whiting. A few dogs made up the weights for the winners with Sam Collier's total of 3.670 kg, which included the heaviest dog of 0.880 kg, taking first place. In second and third place, respectively, were Steve Swan with 2.990 kg and Brian Smith with 2.290 kg. The heaviest flat was a 30 cm dab caught by Steve Hackett which weighed 0.260 kg.
