Once again the Whitby fishing club season is underway. As usual The Whitby Fishing Club seek to make it very difficult for anyone to publish their match results. As always, where there’s a will there’s a way, and we will attempt to bring you news on the clubs results and matches as it happens.

You may also wish to visit our forum for results and reports from some of the lads. The fishing club season runs for the next six months from October until the end of March with 2 matches per week apart from over the Christmas break.

Wed 7th Nov 2012 – Report By Glenn Kilpatrick

Neap Tides
Low – 15.26 – 2.4m
High – 21.35 – 4.5m

We apologise once again for the lateness in publishing the results. As usual The Whitby Fishing Club have made it very difficult for anyone wishing to publish and debate their catches, sadly we do not see this changing in the near future. Tonight’s 3 hour match was fished on a neap flooding tide with high water at roughly half past nine. Often thought to be very difficult tides to fish, a small flooding neep tide can be excellent if you find yourself in the right place, which Rob Allison clearly did as he won this match with a very respectable bag of 4 fish for 9lb 5oz.

The conditions on the night were good with all marks continuing to be colored up. A growing north to north easterly sea swell of around 2 metres (Cefas Data) meant chances of fish were high and this was reflected in the results with 10 anglers making it to the scales with a diversity of fish including cod and the much debated whiting.

As usual the main decision for anglers competing in this match was to head onto the soft ground in search of species like whiting or flounder, or to persevere on the rocks in search of cod. Rob Allison & Mathew Garbutt made the right choice on this occasion and their bags of cod came out tops in the match.

Results :

  1. R Allison 9lb 5oz (4)

Sunday 4th November, Whitby Fishing Club Report And Results.

High water 1857 hrs 4.9m.
Low water 0117 hrs 1.7m

Tonight’s 4 hour match was fished over high tide with 1 hour flood and roughly 2.5 hours of ebbing tide. The night was mostly dry with a moderate east north east wind strengthening throughout the match. A large bright moon was present throughout the match which may have hampered catches on the shallower marks over clear ground. Conditions were good with most marks colored up and a slight to moderate long distance northerly swell of 3 ft in the water. The nice fish are continuing to make a show and the nights best fell to Colin Stainthorpe with a cod of 7lb 12oz

Wednesday 31st October

A slight South Easterly swell accompanied by strong winds and driving rain made things tough for the lads who turned out to fish this midweek match. The lads fished an ebbing tide of 5.4m with the match finishing roughly 1 hour before low tide. Forum members Rich Cope and Ben Laws report a nice bit of movement around the scars at Robin Hoods Bay. Both reported mixed catches of Codling, Flounder, Coalies and Rocklings after numerous bites. With the poor conditions on the night, many of the lads opted to fish for Whitings on the soft ground.

Sun 28th October

Sunday nights 4 hr match started mid tide with low water at 2113 hrs 1.4m. The strong north easterly swell we saw on saturday, was quickly being knocked back by the westerly wind, which was enhanced by the ebbing tide. Less than favourable conditions for club members but there was a good turn out with 13 anglers at the scales. 37 fish were weighed in for heaviest total so far this season of 70 lb 15 oz. The heaviest fish of the night 7 lb 14 oz caught by Matthew Garbutt, was just part of a bag of 6 codling and 1 billet for 23 lb 04 oz (who also took man of the man). Which incidentally is also the heaviest bag of fish this month and the season so far. Weed was a common problem reported by many anglers after the rough seas over the last few days.

J Gilpin beat (3 lb 12 oz) W Atkinson in a singles match.

Wed 24th Oct

Wednesday nights 3 hr match started right on low water on a very slack tide, 2.2m low and a 4.5m high. North easterly wind and a slight, but growing north easterly swell came too late to improve the already poor conditions. 17 anglers fished with only 9 anglers at the weigh in, with 18 fish for 18 lb 10 oz. Rob Allison was man of the match with a fine codling of 6 lb 04 oz. With only a few whiting weighed, the rest consisted of small codling, flaties, rocklings, billets and eels.

Hopefully with the weather forecasters predicting snow and sleet and strong winds, fishing conditions should improve.

Wednesday nights 3 hr match was the 1st round of the Singles Knockouts. The match started 1 hr after high water 5.9m, with a fast dying north easterly swell being knocked back by the south easterly wind. It was a warm evening and less than favourable conditions forced anglers to resort to scratching for whatever they could catch. 13 anglers were at the scales with 34 fish for 26 lb. Matthew Garbutt was man of the match with 10 whiting for 5 lb 15 oz. Dave Hambley caught the heaviest fish of the night with a codling of 4 lb 06 oz.

Martin Lamb beat Paula Midgley
Malcolm Pitman beat Mick Beedle
Scott Moore beat Mike Bowman
Peter Horbury beat James Moore.

Matches still to be fished:-
William Atkinson V James Gilpin
Dave Perrett V Bernard Vasey.

After every match anglers recount their misses and loses, and last night was no different. Dave Perrett reported he had lost a good fish which had become snagged and could not be lifted for one reason or another. Snapping his main line, the fish was lost (or was it?). However, being a big tide, I returned with Dave later that night to the foot of the cliff mark where he had been fishing. It was not long before I found his fish, snagged in the rocks, still hooked. Weighed later it was good codling of 6 lb 14 oz. Could this cost Dave the WSAA title? Time will tell!! We are still open for new members and it’s only a couple of weeks to our annual open, Sunday 18th Nov. 2012.

Sunday nights 4 hr match started 2 hrs after high water 5.4m and finished just before low water on a 1.0m ebb. With a growing sea, plenty of colour in the water and a north easterly wind, conditions were favourable for a few fish. Anglers did report surging and plenty of drag nearing low water. Weed was also a major factor in many marks. 14 anglers were at the scales with an impressive 64 lb 03 oz of fish. Neil Inglis was man ot the match with 7 fish for 16 lb 12 oz, the heaviest being 8 lb 07 oz. Neil did report losing another good fish when his swivel got jammed in the end eye of his rod. Neil now takes the lead for the Heaviest Bag of Fish for the month but his heaviest fish was 2 + ounces short of taking Heaviest Fish of the month, currently held by Andrew Cass 8 lb 09 oz.

08/10/2012

High water 2123 hrs 4.4m.

Sunday nights 4 hrs match started 3 hrs before high-water, 4.4m at 2105 hrs. With a good sea running, on the flood, anglers were hopeful of a fish or two. With very little wind and clear skies it quickly turned chilly. Twelve anglers were at the scales to weigh in 41 fish for 46 lb 10 oz, with many small codling, billets, flatties and eels, a small crowd soon gathered to watch. Being the first run of sea this season it proved hazardous to many an anglers tackle with plenty of weed reported from heavy kelp storks to pounds of fine sea grass. One venue was reported ‘as wick with fish’ but you could not them out because of the weed. Colin Stainthorpe caught the heaviest fish of the night 4 lb 00 oz codling, which puts him in the lead for the monthly sweep. Scott Moore was man of the match with 7 fish for 10 lb 04 oz.
