  3. FLAMBOROUGH KAYAK MATCH REPORT AND RESULTS 2012 The match was held at south landing Flamborough on the 26 TH August With a strong wind blowing Stonefish had em-posed boundary's with the Headland being out of bounds for safety With event organizer Stonefish and journalist/photographer Simon Everett That makes 58 kayak anglers preparing to launch The safety crew for the day was from Hornsea Inshore Rescue and our safety boat was Charity Venture Stonefish welcomes crew member Neil Crawthorne to Flamborough After a safety briefing covering a few issues with the weather etc 58 kayak anglers prepered to launch Simon Everett paddled to the middle to photo the pack passing The fishing would be hard and more a scratching match than the search for a big one The anglers were fishing for 1 large fish for the scales and a bag of Mackerel for a big bag Neil swims back to Charity to commence the safety for the day With the boundary's in place deep water was a struggle to find So many kayak hitting the water at one time makes a splash Some opting for a slow start One of the 1st to catch was Sam Baxter (Yakin Sam) Here he displays a school Bass Much to Sam's disappointment it did not meet the Bass Scale size so he released it to swim for another day The Kayak Sam used was very familiar with the area this surely would be an advantage at finding these allusive fish Some opted to stay close and fish in small groups All though the sun had come out it was windy but what a view the the anglers got of the south side of the head Last years event was dominated by the ocean range of kayaks It was great this year to have so many new company's yaks there and more trusty old ones the kayakers know and love And the 2 glass company's with a great fleet on the water 4 Stealth kayaks and around 10 Dorado,s made a nice sight at Flamborough Some of the kayakers stayed close and in the clam shelter of the sea cliffs some opting for the fury of the head The large swell and breaking waves had made a natural boundary wall no kayaker would of wanted to cross Although both Stonefish and Richie went for a close look at the natural wonder , most kayakers stayed well clear The result of 2 people 2 photos at the same time The fishing was hard with open water out the question Ian Pickering (Tanglefoot) here show off his Coalfish Last years 2nd place winner Dean Drew was struggling this year We had Juniors this year Some of the juniors got a helping paddle hand by Dad Pete Carr along with Andy Money & Stonefish had put up the kids prizes Jeff Elliot (01kayak) here with his fish and jester hat it seem kayakers like funny hats As you see in the back ground Charity was never far away Is it a whopper or the sea bed As the hours drew on the fishing improved for some Ryan turner getting most of his fish in the last 40 Min's A bag of rubby dubby was the solution for one angler called Jonas (Glenn) getting a great amount of fish coming to him A radio call was made to the Yorkshire Bell by Stonefish informing her of the presence of 58 kayak anglers She gave a wide berth and was thanked It was like usual fishing businesses for Andy Money (Andy M) with billet after billet When approached by Stonefish for a picture he landed a new all time billet record around 2.5 inches of squirmy billet the photo was not great You can do every thing you can to have a safe match but some things are out of your control like weather and this jet ski At 2.30 a radio announcement was made to remind the kayak anglers there was half an our left This was repeated at 10 minute intervals until 3 pm The scales opened and fish were weighed and counted It was decided the results and prize giving would be done at the camp site With the fishing being so close it took Stonefish around an hour to work the results It had even come down to comparing fish for Length and example of species Gray (Graham Scott) and Hoggy (Neil Hogg) had examples of the species that were truly awesome a macky around 50 cm long and a flatty that was like a dinner plate They were awarded a bottle of spirit each for there fish by Colin Welburn and Alain Storey for the examples of species The prizes would be up to 10th place for both the Macky Bash and Biggest Fish MACKY BASH RESULTS 10th lawrence Taylor 9th Peter Carr 8th Glenn (Jonas) 7th Steven Beech 6th Cristoptor Allers 5th Graham

great fish got something in the raffle Hugh had sent a signed copy of his book Stonefish actioned this and made an extra £40 for the life boats A Camera that ha also slipped the prize table was later auctioned and made a further £60 The Day was put on to make money for the lifeboats and made £1216.00 for the rnli and hornsea boats Thanks to all who attended and all the sponsors for your support Stonefish (event organizer) on a personal note The winner Neil Hogg (Hoggy) had a kayak named the Yellow Submarine for a reason Neil made the most of the kayak he had and fishes well Some time people win a prize and later find they don't need or want it Neil has now a brand new FATYAK KAAFU kayak and is very happy and the kayak wont be going any where any time soon ONE VERY HAPPY HOGGY trophy from
