The H.C.A. fishing club was created several years ago by some local boat anglers who wanted to share there vast fishing knowledge of the River Humber with other people who had the same interests.
Since then it has grown from strength to strength and now boasts some 250 anglers fishing from around 100 boats ranging from 15ft cuddies to 45ft motor cruisers.
The club runs from the Humber Cruising Association head quarters from within Grimsby fish docks. Not only do they fish the River Humber through the winter months for the Cod but they also venture off shore to fish the many sand banks and wrecks that litter the East Coast.
If you have an interest in boat angling or you just want some information on the club please pop along. Everybody is welcome.
