The Mediterranean Shore Angling Club held its first re-scheduled outing of the 2014 season at the Detached Mole on Sunday the 2nd February as the scheduled competition had be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions.  The event was well supported with a total of 27 eager anglers turning up for the competition oozing the traditional high level of optimism and excitement in anticipation of a good day’s fishing.  Strong westerly winds prevailed throughout the day – far from ideal fishing conditions considering that using the inside of the mole was difficult due to the fact of the numbers of vessels berthed at the mole and the new restrictions imposed.

Considering the circumstances, the total fish haul for the day was good given the unfavourable weather conditions.  A total of 197 fish were brought to the scales with a total weight 47.52kg, with a further 162 recorded under the catch-and-release system bringing the total day’s catch to a good 357 fish.

The introduction of the Clubs catch and release protocols since 2013 has produced the results expected in that Anglers are now more conscious of the environmental impact of releasing fish which qualify for weigh-in as the numbers of some species were dwindling to alarmingly low figures in years past (in 2013 alone 1137 fish of many species were released).

The two species predominant were the Bogue with 34 & Bronze Bream with 40 although 23 White Bream, 17 Black Bream, 12 Two Banded Bream & 15 Common Sea Bream were brought to the scales for weigh-in.

Michael Tierney landed the heaviest fish of the day – a 1.250 kg Pandora Bream, with the second heaviest going to Michael Tierney once again with a Common Sea Bream which weighed in at 0.960 kg.  The highest points aggregate was secured by Christain Asquez with a very respectable total of 490 points followed very closely by Albert Gonzalez (Snr) with 485 points.
