WHITBY Sea Anglers’ Association’s first match of the 20011-12 season saw a good turnout at the Bandstand.

The group welcomed the five new members and anyone else wanting to join is welcome at the ‘weigh in’ outside Whitby Angling Supplies, 65 Haggersgate, every Wednesday and Sunday night,10pm to 10.30pm.

Fishing an ebbing tide, starting nearly 2 hrs after a 6.1m high water, conditions were far from ideal.

Results: 1 Mike Beedle with two fish, a codling and a pollack for 5lb 9oz; 2 Dave Perrett four fish, 3 coal fish and a pollack for 4lb 14oz; 3 Neil Inglis one fish for 1lb 5oz; 4 Matthew Garbutt one fish for 1lb 3oz; 5 William Atkinson one fish for 1lb 1oz; 6 Dave Hambley one fish for 13oz;

7 Colin Stainthorpe one fish for 5oz.
