High seas boast some big hauls
HUMBER Sea Angling Club were in action last weekend at Barton, fishing behind the Waters Edge reserve.
The turn-out was slightly down due to another match being held over the water at Hessle.
Club chairman Nigel Crabtree came out on top with a fine performance as he caught 11 fish for 3.6lb.
Next in was Jack Barlow who was a lot busier, catching 22 for 3.1lb.

Adie Cooper was third with 16 fish for 2.13lb, including a 31cm flounder – which was the biggest flat fish of the day.
The club's junior member Lauren Haywood had 15oz and the biggest round fish of the match when she hauled in a 20cm smelt.
The club's next match is on Sunday, September 1, fishing the shallows from 5.30pm to 9.30pm. Meet at the barrier at 4.15pm.
I would not be surprised if a few whiting are caught as they have been showing in greater number in the boats over the last couple of weeks.
On the shore, the smooth hounds are very few and far between at the minute, although there have been more on the Yorkshire coast than in Lincolnshire.
In the boat, the sports have been good with a wide variety of species being caught.
The tope are still out towards the DZ buoys and there is plenty of mackerel out there for the greedy torpedoes to feed on.
Moving on to the rivers, and the whiting shoals have moved in over the last week.
While these are not the bigger ones that we will see over the next couple of weeks, they are still well worth fishing for.
