Whitby Angling Festival Summer 2014

As always, results pictures and banter will be here as and when it happens. Sadly this year we are looking for a new photographer as WCSA have banned Jim from posting his pictures onto the forum. We have guaranteed pictures from Sea Otter 2, Mistress, Trot On and Libby, In return we request you support these boats whenever possible.

I have 2 spare cameras with memory cards should any of the regulars down there be willing to take pictures for the forum. Also I will try my best to get there whenever I can to get snaps at the weigh in.

Whitby Angling Festival – The Low Down

Each year the local charter skippers hold a spring, summer and autumn Whitby angling festival. Fishing usually takes place over 14 days (Unless otherwise stated) from boats registered with The Whitby Charter Skippers Association.

In recent years the Whitby Charter Skippers Association have added a 4th event to their calendar. 2008 saw the first ever winter uptiding festival at Whitby. Due to the success of this event the skippers now intend to make it an annual event.

Looking Back Through The Years Of  The Whitby Angling Festival

The Whitby angling festival has seen some major catches over the years including a 45 pounds cod taken on board Rich Wards boat Shytorque. Perhaps none better than this 45 pound cod taken on Rich wards boat Shy torque.

The prizes for the Whitby angling festival continue to grow each year. In 2008 the prize tabled topped twenty thousand pounds in total.

In the summer angling festival there are individual cash prizes for 1st second and third heaviest fish in the categories of Cod, Ling, Haddock, best specimen and junior angler.

    Very well done to Mick Roe for catching the winning ling and the skills and knowledge of Paul Kilpatrick for giving him the opportunity to do so.

    Not a big deal but I won third prize on Day 7 of the festival with a 11lb 9oz Ling. I duly logged and registered it with my details etc but I had to leave before the end of the weighing session due to a long journey.

    I still have my ticket but have not had any contact or my prize money?

    Why is this?
