On Saturday 16th February the Hastings & St Leonards angling club fished another new competition.

Thornback specimen hunt. If no thornbacks were caught then prizes would be awarded for the best specimen as % of club specimens of the shark family.

Fishing in light winds and a flat sea 5 boats got afloat with most bags made up of LSD's and small plaice.

Results were as follows.

1st Dave Cramp with a Thornback of 6lb 1.4oz

He was the only person to catch any thornbacks so 2nd was G. Bisson with an LSD of 1lb 9.9oz.

3rd was P Galloway with an LSD of 1lb 6.2oz.

Only specimen caught was a Whiting of 2lb 4.3oz caught by B. Coleman.
