BOAT ANGLING                                         

2017 Report - Thursday 6th July, Weymouth 

Despite forecasts to the contrary up to the previous afternoon, the weather was just about perfect for this competition. Cloudless skies and warm sun were the order of day Ė for once I was happy to be under the canopy of Supanova for most of the day!

All three boats made several stops for mackerel off the tip of Portland Bill but they were notable by their absence as hardly any were found.

We started the day drifting the sewer pipe for pout and other bits. Most anglers "maxed out" on pout in a couple of drifts. A few scad, poor cod and red gurnards came aboard too. A move back under the cliffs at Portland for wrasse showed the impact the Scottish salmon farms are having on the ballan wrasse numbers. Hundreds of these fish are being transported live to clean the sea-lice off the salmon. Consequently, the number of ballans caught was low and catches were made up of the smaller wrasse species on tompot blennies.

Several moves onto rougher ground brought a few dogfish and a solitary plaice. However, a slight shift of position for the last stop of the day produced a few thornback rays, strap congers and a smoothound. Pete Savoury (E) had the best fish, a conger estimated at 25lb. (Sorry I didnít manage to get photo of this one).

On returning to port and going through the score sheets, it was apparent that all three boats had had a very similar days fishing. The scores across the three boats being very much the same.

Congratulations to the successful anglers and many thanks to the skippers for their hard work and frequent tea and coffee.

Please note that accommodation for these finals is booked at least a year in advance and numbers are based on the regional teams that we know will be taking part. If you want to bring your partner or make the event a family holiday you must contact the angling council first, do not approach the hotel.

There is more to preparation for these finals than sorting out your tackle and ordering bait. Unless you know who you will be sharing a room with get yourself a decent pair of earplugs just in case! Despite forecasts the weather is very changeable so bring seasickness tablets even if you have never been sick before and take them the the night before! 

Whilst competing in the national finals on special leave you are deemed to be at work and are governed by normal Civil Service rules, as such you are expected to turn up at the boats to compete, occupy the room allocated to you and attend the presentation meal. Failure to comply with this timetable could cause you to be charged for unoccupancy of rooms, charged for an evening meal and may lead to disciplinary action by the Civil Service Sports Council or your employer. This also applies if you are retired as you are representing the CSSC.
