ANGLING: McCune lands Portland double
MIGHTY MULLET: Ray Barnes with his best specimen thin-lipped mullet landed at the Weymouth AS shore match
Anglers can catch a maximum of five of any one species during the event, many of which are put back into the water.
For example, smoothound and tope are measured and returned to the sea with only a photograph of the fish required as proof of capture.
Dave McCune won with 10 points for the best specimen (undulate ray of 14-11-12, 147.17 per cent), most fish (22) and heaviest bag (73-11-12).
Joint runners-up with five points each were father and son duo Ray and Steve Goodwin.
Ray gained his points in two categories with most species (dogfish, red gurnard, ballan wrasse, corkwing wrasse, pollack, mackerel, black bream, pout, poor cod), the third most fish (19) and the second most species (dogfish, red gurnard, ballan wrasse, cuckoo wrasse, scad, mackerel, black bream, pout).
Congratulations to Dave for being the first Portland AC member to win both trophies in the same year.

TWO NEW RECORDS
Ian Burden, fishing from his own boat Predator on his mooring in Portland Marina, caught a 6lb thick-lipped mullet and a 2lb 8oz golden grey mullet, establishing two new Portland Boat rec-ords. It should be noted that his 6lb mullet started off as a double shot of mullet but the bigger one managed to break free.
HOLIDAY ANGLERS FROM HOLLAND
In the last week some lads over from Holland enjoyed good fishing aboard Dave Pitman’s boat Atlanta, landing 27 decent specimens between them.
This included a ray of 19lb 10oz, a bull huss of 10lb and several plaice up to 6lb, all of which were returned.
