Par­tridge is a dab hand

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page - by Alan Yates

SEABROOK Sea An­glers had planned to fish the Hythe Ranges dur­ing their midweek evening fix­ture but, with fir­ing tak­ing place, had to switch to Hythe where the main win­ners came from the Fish­er­man’s Beach stretch.

Match win­ner was Do­rian Par­tridge ahead of Steve Har­vey with catches mostly made up of dabs and whit­ing.

Af­ter a bright start, coarse an­glers faced win­ter weather at the week­end with Folke­stone & Shep­way An­gling Club be­gin­ning their club match sea­son in heavy rain.

Win­ner was Pete Joiner from Lyminge who found the carp feed­ing on the road side and net­ted 60lb on pole and pel­let.

Sim­i­lar con­di­tions greeted com­peti­tors fish­ing the Cinque Ports An­gling So­ci­ety match at the Prince of Wales stretch of the Royal Mil­i­tary Canal at Pal­marsh.

Win­ner was Paul Mus­son of Dym­church with a tench and a bream mak­ing up the ma­jor­ity of his 3.400kg.

Sec­ond was Chris Pope of Ash­ford with 2.810kg and third was Hythe an­gler Mick Jones with 1.940kg.

Mus­son cap­tured an 18lb 8oz pike on a half mack­erel dead bait fish­ing at Gig­gers Green on the Rom­ney Marsh sec­tion of the canal, where he also found the eels feed­ing with a best of 2lb 8oz on a dead bait.

Events com­ing up in­clude a Folke­stone SAA beach com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day with fish­ing from 7-11pm.

Seabrook and the Foun­tain an­gling clubs both have events on Mon­day – fish­ing is from 7pm.

IF YOU have caught a big fish or won a match fresh­wa­ter or sea why not let us know about it?
