The first SAI comp of the year took place on courtown North beach on Sat morning, a smaller than usuall turnout including some new faces Eeler and Gar faced a massive swell and dirty brown Sea that looked very promising. It started off fairly slow although I was lucky to get 4 fish in the fisrt hour while everyone else was struggling unfortunatley it wasn't to last as soon everyone was finding the fish mainly flounder's with a few rockling and dabs making an apperance. Rauri (Eeler) seemed to be picking up at least one flounder a cast and was filling up his card nicely while Jp not long back from a golfing holiday in south africa was picking off a few fish too. As It got dark the fishing improved for some lads but not for me to make maters worse I reeled in a trace I lost with 3 counting fish
. Al and his mate gar where picking up some fish on the high pegs and Rauri was still flying Don had a few fish in and Dave Costello had managed a Cod of 38cm only pipped by JP's 39cm for the pools. At the end Gordy had a double flounder I had nothing and Kstaff had a double too but It was too little to late, Rauri had won in his first match with SAI and a Big welldone to him JP was second and Gar was third also his first SAI comp welldone. The highlight of the day was watching Kstaff coming to grips with a fixed spool
and the chipper on the way home.
