A good turnout saw 16 Heron An­gling So­ci­ety mem­bers head to Deal for the Jack­son Cup on Satur­day night. Fish­ing up­tide and vir­tu­ally all in dark­ness, the event was promis­ing of good re­sults, un­til the wind had its say. A staunch 20mph north east­erly was preva­lent for the whole com­pe­ti­tion and made things dif­fi­cult. None­the­less, 13 com­peti­tors brought fish to the scales, com­pris­ing whit­ing and dog­fish. Si­mon Stephen­son found the best of the num­bers from the Walmer end with 10 fish weigh­ing 10lb 14.4oz for the win while new­comer Ron­nie Cimino came sec­ond with seven fish for 6lb 8.2oz from the golf course and won the heav­i­est fish pool with a spec­i­men dog­fish of 2lb 2oz. D. Neiles was third with six fish weigh­ing 5lb 14.6oz from Deal main beach. This Sun­day, The Herne Bay An­gling As­so­ci­a­tion are boat fish­ing for the Ed­wards Cup from 8am–2pm.
