    Hi Ken,
    I will be there the wife is giving me the day off, she has a different EU charter to workers rights than anyone else on the planet. Gardening at this time of year is mayhem and on top of that I have 6 allotments to tend, but I am still around.

    See you all soon

    quint Watch out Emperor Zorg's about

    Here are the match rules and a few pictures to give you a view and an idea of the area, just ask if you need any more info and if I've missed any points

    Match Rules

    Two hooks are allowed, trebles count as one hook

    A competitor may have two rods set up at any time, but can only fish with one rod at any given time

    Each competitor must weigh in his or her own catch

    Fishing times are – start at 9.00 weigh in by 15.30 – no kayak to be in the water until 9.00

    The decision of the official timekeeper is final

    Competitors qualify for one prize only round fish, one prize flatfish

    Competitor may receive help of any person to gaff, or assist him or her in landing a fish, but they must not handle the rod in doing so

    All kayakers must wear a suitable PFD

    Float, bottom and artificial fishing allowed

    The Northern boundary will be marked by a flag on the cliff and 250 metres off, the Southern boundary will be opposite the slipway promenade, and opposite the bell buoy (marked on your map) – please note due to the nature of the boundaries these are obviously approximate

    The committee reserve the right to add to or amend the prizes as listed for all events

    Neither the committee nor the Filey Brigg Angling Society shall be held responsible for, damage, loss or injury by any person in connection with the competition

    Tips and Techniques

    There will be less tide run around the back of the Brigg (near the ladders) target species here will be Cod and Pollock – bait could be used either static or on the move, baits could be worm/crab/squid/mussel, if the water is clear any suitable method should take fish, jiggers, muppets, hokeyes etc, for Pollock a deep plug or “jelly” could score

    The further you get to Brigg End the stronger the tide, methods as above should be employed here

    Please be aware that there will be shore anglers on the Brigg, particular at the Back around the ladders, please respect them so that they have room to cast, and be aware of airborne leads

    Thornback rays are a real and good target, and are located in the sandy areas of Filey bay, tactics would be static fish/squid baits

    There is a prize for heaviest flat fish ( turbot, plaice, flounder, dab, sole) these again will be located in the bay, baits will be worm, crab, shellfish etc)

    This area will be where the weigh in and registration centre will be


    This is the "Back of Brigg" where the tide is less strong


    The Brigg itself



    The area in front of the outer scar here is noted for Pollock


    The slip way entrance to the beach, and the steep bit at the bottom, it took me 5 minutes to walk up from the beach to weigh in centre, please take note of this for weigh in times



    Hope these help and give you an insight, the weather looks like it will be very good at the moment

    May seem like a daft question, but, what do you mean by 'two hooks are allowed'? :embarrass:

    quint Watch out Emperor Zorg's about

    You can use 2 hooks at a time, for instance on your rig you may have a bait on the bottom and 1 higher up the rig, a treble counts as 1, so a treble on a jigger and a feather higher up counts as 2 hooks

    Your right not with a kayak, walked it this evening to give myself an idea - it's an important point as there is no finishing time as such, only you have to weigh in by 15.30 - it's up to all competitors to give themselves adequate time to arrive at the beach, and get up the slope, with or without their kayak

    well it looks like the weather has took a turn for the better on the forecast, looked a bit dicey earlier yesterday
    any ideas on the clarity over there at the moment......ken? :cheesy:

    Ok does this mean we will need to snip one of the hokkias off the shop bought rigs (typically a 3 hook affair)......no problem, catch very few on the top one anyway
