Decided to go over to filey, a few days before the competition to meet up with Ken and Spud on Thursday night. Got their for about, 10 o'clock. The intention was to pitch my tent up that night, but as time was getting on and I was feeling a little bit knackered after the long drive over their Ken kindly offered me a bed in his caravan awning that I gratefully accepted (cheers ken)
The next morning we, me, Ken, spud, Dave decided that we was going to go fishing out of Robin Hood Bay. Just north of Scarborough parking was a bit iffy but the venue was fantastic, after a puddle of about mile and a half. We got to the first fishing mark and with the first drift. I was into at this fish
We fished the floods or high water resulting in about eight cod between us.
My first two Yorkshire cod

spud and ken in the swell
Saturday, we was joined by lozz and decided to go fishing off the Filey brigg. Again, the fishing was quite slow, but we did manage to get a few fish that day. When we arrived back at the campsite, we were greeted by newyaker and Growler who had arrived with a lord of nice shiny new equipment.
Sunday the day the fishing comp.
I walk up to bright sunshine, and hardly any wind ideal conditions for kayak Fishing. After sorting out on the tackle and getting the kayak down to the launch point, which was in walking distance from where we was camped. We was all prepared for the launch started the competition. As we launched a turned back to see what looked like the charge of the light Brigade but only with 33 kayakers paddling for all they was worth to get around the brigg first to claim their fishing spot.
Some of the locals were straight on to fish well as myself and a few others like today previously struggling to find where the fish was but as the day wore on We did eventually coax a couple of cod up, as the tide started to flood from the North and get stronger winds picked up from the south. That made for some interesting conditions. Then at about 4 1/2 hours into the competition, the organisers decided to call it a day, as it looked as if there was some bad weather, coming our way. This turned out to be a good call because just as we got back into the bay. The heavens opened up.
By the time we all got to the weigh in. You would never of know. We had just had some torrential rain, as it was bright sunshine, but still a little bit of Wind.
At the weigh in there was some good fish being brought to the scales with three double figure cod and plenty of other fish around about the five pound mark, but the best fish of the day was a13lb cod with second and third Both coming in just over 10lb with only ounces to separate them.
I think everybody who launched all caught fish, making this venue, a superb location.
At the weigh in it was clear from the atmosphere that this competition was more about the social side of kayak Fishing. And not just winning.
Big thanks must go out to all who helped to organise this match to the safety boats, And filey Fishing Society.
