ADAM Cullingford claimed first place in West Bay Sea Angling Club’s latest competition, the Andy Neal Rover.

The angling club also saw an entry for the club’s fish of the quarter competition from Malvin Chambers, who caught a 1kg 956gms 107.82 per cent plaice and Chambers’ boat-caught plaice saw him finish third in the competition.

Venues chosen to fish May’s rover were Eype and Burton Bradstock, and the spider crabs at Burton enjoyed the free offerings from the angler’s bait, but thankfully Eype was crab free.

Most fish points went to Adam Cullingford with nine points, for plaice and dogfish.

The second longest fish was Steve Fowles with a 63cm dogfish.

The third most species went to Gerry Read for catching dogfish and pouting.

Species caught in the match were plaice, dogfish and pouting.

The day after, competitors fished in the Sunday daytime at Abbotsbury.

However, it was dire with Ken Martin catching the only fish of the day, a red gurnard.
