The weather and sea conditions were not the greatest today and the anglers went to sea with the understanding that they might be called to safer areas if the wind got up and that early lines up would be called if conditions worsened even further. By 11:00 the call went out for everyone to move from the deeper waters to an area closer to the harbour and lines had to be up by 12 noon. In spite of the shortened day, some good fish were caught by some of the teams. There are likely to be some surprises at tomorrow’s prize-giving!
After the weigh-in and recording of the catches, there was a lively spirit at the clubhouse as the teams mingled and discussed the wonderful week of fishing they had enjoyed together. Having four out of five potential days was just awesome and so nobody minded the gusting winds, darkening skies, and later a downpour of rain. They were back safely onshore and the competition was over!
Marinda, manageress of Suidpunt Deep Sea Angling Club, and her amazing staff have catered excellent boat packs and dinners during this week and tonight we are all looking forward to her famous lasagne! Then tomorrow the prize-giving and closing function will take the form of a brunch. All results will be posted thereafter.
