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.
