We still have the an­noy­ing ‘May wa­ter’ with us on the lo­cal beaches, This al­gal bloom puts the fish off­shore and I don’t blame them! The last trip for me pro­duced only ‘wash­ing lines’ of the stuff on ev­ery cast. If you drop close, it is there as well. This was proved by the lat­est com­pe­ti­tion at Gal­loways where Si­mon New­man had one ray for a con­vinc­ing win with 3.650kg. Lots of blanks and we all can’t wait for this ‘plague’ to go! Down at the Rad­nor Park pond in Folkestone, match sec­re­tary Steve Cum­mings had a red let­ter day at the first com­pe­ti­tion of the new sea­son with a mighty catch of 129lb. This is a day ticket wa­ter but please read the sign for pro­hib­ited baits and take your lit­ter home as this will de­ter ver­min. Sandgate is show­ing a few fish over high wa­ter with dabs, floun­der and dog­fish. The se­niors and dis­abled pegs on Dover’s Ad­mi­ralty pier are pro­duc­ing a var­ied se­lec­tion of fish in­clud­ing dog­gies, bass and wrasse. The lat­est open com­pe­ti­tion at Sand­wich Fish­eries was won by Lyminge’s Pete Joiner. He had an all-carp net of 23lb on the method feeder.
