    We tried to stage this popular competition twice last November and were wiped out by huge seas so we intend to try again on Sunday, March 19th.
    I know that it is probably not the best time to run a comp, but due to the kind sponsorship by Redcar Angling, we have a rod and prizes up for grabs and another rod for the usual competition in November, and anytime is a good time for raising money for Redcar RNLI ! Let's hope the weather gods are kinder to us this time!
    Registration in the bar of the Ship Inn, Saltburn from 4.30pm. Fishing 5.30 pm - 8.30pm (High 8.07pm)
    Boundaries- Agar's Gap to Huntcliff, Saltburn Pier out of bounds.
    Please support. Thanks

    What's the cost of this comp, and are there any raffles or prizes donated. I do have a reason for asking :)

    Think its a tenner and all monies go to the charities named, used to be GNAA and RNLI but think this time its just the RNLI

    Prizes are donated, Redcar Angling sponsor the event and always give a top end beach rod for first prize, Bob will be able to reply better when he sees this

    Hi Firefly, cost of entry is £5 for seniors, £3 juniors. £1 sweep for heaviest fish and £2 per team of two.
    As all money in, is donated to Redcar RNLI, we rely heavily on good will for the raffle prizes and the generosity of anglers and supporters never ceases to amaze me!
    Any prizes donated will be gratefully received. Thanks

    Got out with it 4 times last year, big change this year, going to be looking for local work this year and trying to knock the paint off doing what boats do, getting afloat and catching a few, if you come up give me a shout and if I can manage it you can always have a day afloat

    Sorry for the delay in posting results of the J.M Comp.
    31 anglers and one junior fished in a perfect sea.Unfortunately sizeable fish were hard to come by, though quite a few people managed to land undersized fish, mainly coalie, flounder or tiny codling, though one angler did land two undersized bass, which perhaps indicates that bass may well be present all the year round or may have
    stayed due to the mild winter.
    The winner was Barry Morgan with a coalie of 0.35kg, second Kiaran Southerland with a flounder of 0.30kg and Chris Woods was third with a flounder of 0.11kg.
    Best of all we managed to raise over £200 for Redcar RNLI. Many thanks to all who participated.
    We intend to hold the 2017 J.M.comp in early October. Hope to see you there.
