Flounders are the catch of the day

Extremely cold conditions met the anglers for Weston Sea Angling Association’s spring open beach competition.

WESTON Sea Angling Association held their spring open beach fishing competition sponsored by Kingston Garage, with 56 anglers taking part, nine of which were juniors.

With an extremely cold easterly wind, it proved difficult to catch the few fish and a challenge to keep warm in the conditions.

Nine anglers weighed in and first with three flounders weighing 1lb 12.5 oz was England international, Rod Marshall from Taunton. On his heels was local angler Morgan Wilson again with a flounder catch.

In third place was Austin Cox from Bridgwater, who landed the heaviest flounder of the day and apart from third prize, also won the optional pool. John Lintern, of the host club, took the second prize in the optional pool.
