Hastings Angling Centre Open 29th December 2012

This years Hastings Angling Centre Open Beach Match was fished in very heavy conditions with huge seas and a southerly gale gusting to nearly 50mph. Fifty three hardy anglers struggled with the conditions but those who could get out and hold were rewarded with surprisingly good bags of fish. In these conditions only a few flatfish were recorded but good numbers of bass and whiting were had.

The clear winner was Darren Brooks fishing at Newchurch with 36 fish for 16lb 13oz who received the £300 first prize. The heaviest fish was a codling of 3lb 14oz for Rob Dunk. Tony Methven had the heaviest flat a flounder of 14oz. Both the winners of the heaviest fish won Akios CTM reels.
