Lo­cal carp an­glers Dave Hill and Andy Good­man took ad­van­tage of the warm weather and in a ses­sion at Nick­olls Lake near Hythe, had a dou­ble-fig­ure catch of carp to 32lb, Cinque Ports Club held their open day at Beach­bourgh Lakes and de­spite poor weather, new an­glers vis­ited the com­plex to see what’s on of­fer. Sev­eral ju­nior an­glers were given a chance to have a go and some nice fish were banked. I feel the ju­niors are now hooked for life. The Martin Wal­ters lads were out on their lat­est night com­pe­ti­tion at Seabrook and top rod was Ja­cob Gainey with 12lb 15oz. Andy Gainey (9lb 7oz) was sec­ond and Danny Jago (5lb 6oz) third. Dog­fish, dabs and pout­ing made up the catches. Win­ner of the lat­est Will­ing Cup se­ries on the canal was Lau­rie Web­ster with 3.090kg. Sec­ond was Colin Con­roy (2.300kg) while I was third with 2.070kg. The Folkestone sea se­niors were out on Princess Pa­rade due to the fact the pier is still closed to them and found it tough go­ing. Salt­wood’s John Wells found a few for 2lb and a win, with Ron Laker (1lb 12oz) sec­ond and Tom Pre­ston (1lb 5oz) third.
