High water 2030 hrs 4.4m.

Wednesday nights 3 hr match was over high water, 2030 hrs, 4.4m, on a very slack tide with little tidal rip. Flat calm sea conditions, crystal clear water and a sight south westerly breeze. Once again anglers were down to ‘scratching’ for what ever was available. Some travelling north to Redcar and others south to Bempton, like last sunday’s match. The weigh in consisted of dog fish and whiting. 9 anglers were at the scales to weigh in 28 fish for 26 lb 03 oz. M Beedle was man of the match with 3 lesser spotted dog fish for 5 lb 02 oz.

40 of 50 Wednesday 22nd February 2012.
low water 2244 hrs 0.8m.

Once again the weather was against the anglers, with a flat calm sea and strong south westerly winds. Low water was at 2244 hrs with an ebb of 0.8m, the second largest tide of the month. Once again anglers had to travel in order to be competitive and if you study the leader board, where 10 lb of whiting can make a big difference to an anglers standing, especially as there are only 10 matches left of the season.

8 anglers weighed in 85 fish for 68 lb 05 oz, with 7 of them fishing the same location. A Cass was man of the match with 18 whiting for 14 lb 06 oz.

39 0f 50 Sunday 19th February 2012.
Low water 2044 hrs 1.4m.

Sunday nights 4 hr match was fished over low water, 2044 hrs with a predicted ebb of 1.4m. With a northerly sea running and a north westerly breeze, expectations were high. All anglers reported the predicted ebb of 1.4m was more like a 0.9m or lower and many venues had already emptied before the match started. Heavy surging did not help but that did not stop M Garbutt from his 4th win in a row with the heaviest bag for the month. M Beedle found the heaviest fish of the night, 6 lb 04 1/2 oz. 9 anglers were at the scales to weigh 9 fish for 27 lb 04 oz.

38 of 50 Wednesday 15th Febraury 2012.
High water 2159hrs 4.6m.

Wednesday nights 3 hr match finished right on high water, 2200hrs, 4.6m, with a strong north north westerly sea running. Wind was a strong north westerly on a very mild evening. I have never seen so many lights down Runswick Bay, 20+, as Redcar, Navy and Gentleman’s Club was also fishing. Many disappeared as quickly as they arrived, as conditions were against them. Weed was a big problem and so was the drag, as the beach filled up with large swells and then retreated. However the West Pier was the place to be as Matthew Garbutt caught the heaviest fish, and heaviest bag of the month so far 1 codling for 6 lb 06 1/2 oz. This landing was not without some luck or destiny, as it appears to be Matthew’s year. Another angler was snagged up with his line around Matthew’s as he was reeling the fish in. The other angler snapped his line and Matthew’s, with the fish falling down the side of the pier. Fellow WSAA member Neil Inglis told Matthew the bad news but when Neil lifted his drop net, Matthew’s fish was suspended from under the drop net. The rotten bottom clip on his trace had caught in the mess of the drop net and the fish was landed. Destiny or what??

3 anglers weighed in 3 fish for 13 lb 10 oz.

1st M Garbutt with 1 fish for 6 lb 7/16oz
2nd N Inglis with 1 fish for 5 lb 1/16oz
3rd J Gilpin with 1 fish for 2 lb 2/16oz.

37 of 50 Sunday 12th February 2012. BELL TROPHY.
Low water 1259 hrs 1.0m.

The Bell Trophy, the inter club fishing competition organised by Scarborough Rock Anglers was fished on sunday 12th February. Anglers met on Marine Drive, Scarborough at 0930 hrs. Each club submitted names and teams of competitors to the organisers. Whitby Sea Anglers had 15 anglers split into 2 teams, A & B. After a brief talk by the organisers, detailing fishing times, rules and cautions on where not to park, competitors were set away. Fishing was from 1100-1500 with boundaries from Argyle Gully, (just north of Hayburn Wyke) to coble landing at Filey. Weigh in at Scarborough Angling Social Club 1500-1600. Weather wise, it was a clear dry day with a freshening northerly wind and a little north easterly swell. Water was crystal clear with low water at 1300 hrs on a 1.0m ebb.

81 anglers competed and only 7 weighed in 15 fish for 5 lb 14 oz 06 drams. There were no codlings weighed just 2 billets (coal fish) and 13 dabs.

1st Filey ‘B’ with a total weight of 3 lb 00 oz 12 drams, Av/man 0 lb 05 oz 06 drams

36 of 50 Wednesday 8th February 2012.
Low water 2246 hrs 0.6m.

Last night was very trying, one due to the cold weather, -2 deg C (trying to keep bait from refreezing), and two, due to the scarcity of the fish. An ebbing tide, with low water at 2246 hrs, 0.6m, a little easterly swell meant crystal clear water and a with chilly southerly breeze. Anglers had to travel in order to be competitive with local venues just not producing any fish. Out of 12 anglers who fished only 4 were at the scales with 18 whiting for 13 lb 05 oz.

1st M Garbutt with 4 fish for 3 lb 12/16oz
2nd D Perrett with 5 fish for 3 lb 8/16oz
3rd P Garbutt with 5 fish for 3 lb 7/16oz
4th P Horbury with 4 fish for 2 lb 10/16oz.

35 of 50 Sunday 5th February 2012.
Slack tide, low water 2043 hrs 1.6m.

Sunday nights 4 hr match had its own draw backs weather wise. The forecasted heavy snow fall just did not materialise. The snow was melting as fast as it had fallen and the warm breeze during the afternoon was stopped as soon as night fell and so did the temperature. On a clear cloudless night, a bright full moon, crystal clear water, very little easterly swell and a gentle south westerly breeze, prospects of a bag of fish were very optimistic. To the north one could see the flickering red dome of light from Tees Sides industries and out at sea to the east, there was a storm brewing with a fine display of lightening. Low water was at 2043 hrs, 1.6m. Some anglers elected to stay at home but its the die hards who stick at it and pick up an odd fish or two, nibbling away at the weights of those in front. In the leader board, D Perrett and A Cass are now separated by only 8 ounce for 6th place with only 15 matches left.

Only 3 anglers were at the scales with 6 fish for 5 lb 05 oz.

1st A Cass with 3 whiting for 2 lb 4/16oz
2nd R Allison with 1 codling for 1 lb 9/16oz
3rd P Horbury with 2 dabs for 1 lb 8/16oz.

34 of 50 Wednesday 1st February 2012.
Low water 1609 hrs 2.4m or high water 2222 hrs 4.2m, slack tide.

Easterly seas, never a good sign, it may stir up the feeding grounds but never seems to produce many fish. With a flooding, slack tide, east south east winds, wednesday nights 3 hr match finished shortly before high water 4.2m. 14 anglers fished, and only 4 managed to weigh in, 4 fish for 4 lb 08 oz. 18th January was the last poor weigh in (10 lb 01 oz, 14 fish) and hopefully things will improve with this cold spell.

1st A Cass with 1 codling for 1 lb 9/16oz
2nd P Horbury with 1 whiting for 1 lb 5/16oz
3rd P Garbutt with 1 whiting for 14/16oz
4th W Atkinson with 1 whiting for 12/16oz.

33 of 50 Sunday 29th January 2012.
High water 1942 hrs 5.0m.

How quickly sea conditions change! Having looked at the sea earlier in the afternoon, a venue was decided on, tackle and bait chosen for the nights fishing. Having driven to the venue it was found to be unfishable. Plan B had to be found quickly. This is just what happened to a number of anglers, the easterly sea had come from nowhere, and was growing with the flood tide. But once high tide was reached it dropped away as fast as it had grown. With a south easterly wind, rain, sleet and snow, sunday nights 4 hr match was fished over high water, 1942 hrs, 5.0m. 17 anglers fished with only 8 anglers at the scales with a disappointing weigh in of 20 fish for 23 lb 02 oz. Being the last match in January, the monthly sweep stake winners are:- M Lamb for Heaviest Bag of 17 lb 09 oz (8th Jan) and Heaviest Fish J Gilpin 6 lb 14 1/2 oz (22nd Jan). That concludes the fishing for the month of January, 364 lb 06 oz was weighed in.

1st M Garbutt with 5 fish for 6 lb 11/16oz
2nd P Short with 5 fish for 4 lb 10/16oz
3rd D Thompson with 2 fish for 4 lb 7/16oz
4th P Garbutt with 3 fish for 3 lb 4/16oz
5th N Inglis with 2 fish for 1 lb 10/16oz
6th M Beedle with 1 fish for 1 lb 6/16oz
7th M Lamb with 1 fish for 12/16oz
8th A Cass with 1 fish for 6/16oz.

32 of 50 Wednesday 25th January 2012.
High water 1719 hrs 5.7m or if you prefer low water 2343 hrs 0.8m.

Wednesday nights 3 hr match started 1 hr 40 mins after high water, 5.7m, on one of the biggest tides for January. With a strong south westerly wind and a flat calm sea (how many times this season have we heard this), anglers had to travel in order to find a few whiting. M Lamb was man of the match with 14 whiting for 11 lb. 9 anglers were at the scales with 56 fish for 45 lb.

1st M Lamb with 14 fish for 11 lb 00 oz

9th A Cass with 1 fish for 7/16oz.

31 of 50 Sunday 22nd January 2012.
Low water 2143 hrs 1.0m.

Sunday nights 4 hour match finished just after low water 2143 hrs, on what was supposed to be at a height of 1.0m. However the tide ebbed away fast, as the strong westerly wind pushed it back further than expected. Many anglers reporting marks emptying out and new features were visible. With a regular north westerly swell, anglers were keen to be out and made off to their favourite marks. P Horbury was man of the match with 2 codling for 7 lb 09 oz. J Gilpin caught the heaviest fish of 6 lb 14 1/2 oz, which now takes the leader board for the heaviest fish caught in a match for the month of January. Nine anglers were at the scales with 10 fish for 37 lb 01 oz.

1st P Horbury with 2 fish for 7 lb 9/16oz
2nd J Gilpin with 1 fish for 6 lb 15/16oz
