Round four of Ramsey Angling club’s Summer Shield was held in horrendous conditions with a force eight easterly battering the fourteen anglers. Such was the conditions that at the end the majority were forced to fish in the harbour. Only five fish were weighed in, George Dugdale landing a beach caught flounder and a eel from the harbour to claim a over due win, his flattie taking pool one.
Second with another eel was Johnny Green, a first cast mackeral was enough for Kevin Quinn to take third and the second pool, and a flounder for Mark Longwith was it.
Result 1, G. Dugdale 82cms; 2, J. Green 44; 3, K. Quinn 36; 4, M. Longwith 28.
The poor weather continued so a switch from Ballaugh to the calm waters of Stone boat produced large catches of dogfish. Another angler claiming a rare win was John Senogles, who landed twenty five doggies and a mackeral to head Mark Quirk by one dogfish. Ever consistant Andrew Dugdale was again in the top three, and Barry Sharpe completed the top four with a twenty dogfish catch. Dugdale’ s heaviest dogfish took pool one, with Colin Quayle landing pool two with a mackeral.
Result 1, J. Senogles 2038cms; 2, M. Quirk 1953; 3, A. Dugdale 1807; 4, B. Sharpe 1600; 5, B. Richards 1314; 6, I. Ashcroft and C. Skillicorn 1200; 8, C. Quayle 1159; 9, G. Dugdale 1081; 10, K. Quinn 880; 11, B. Harrison 800; 12, O. Turner 370.
