Whitby Angling Festival Summer 2016

Once again the Whitby Charter Skippers Association will be running 3 angling festivals in 2015. At present the only details we have are the confirmed dates as displayed above. As soon as we have updates on prizes and any other details it will be posted here for you to read. If you have any questions then the place to ask is on our fishing forum here.

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?
